First moose hunt, bull tag in Maine Zone 2.....
Tyrone's NL Moose
Took almost 25 years but I fianlly got the tag.
I'm sure I'll be hanging around here and asking more questions but let's start off with cartridge.
I was under the impression they are not too hard to kill and although I am not recoil shy I figured I'd be fine with a .308 180 grain or a .358 200 grain. I can also use a 30.06.
Leaning towards the .358 becuse the gun is a Savage 99 and I get into the traditional aspect of it.
The .308 is a MRC I built myself, plastic stock and stainless steel, it's going to be coming no matter as the foul weather choice.
The 30.06 is a Rem. 720, another vintage gun.
Are any of these bad choices with a medium power scope?
What range should I expect to be shooting at in the Maine woods?
