What constitutes a world record?
Large antlers-massive bodies, boss of the bush? Well I have lived in n/w Ontario all my life - I am 60 years old - hunted with the same guys for 45 years and my son who joined us when he was 16 - he is now 30 -- we as a group have taken many moose seen countless -- gone lean sometimes-more often than not.
I have hunted at 75 degrees f and 35 below in waist deep snow -- and still enjoy everything about it.
A lot of hunters give it up because they say I'm too old, well it does hurt more and I cannot do what I used to do - but will never give up the sport--even when I cannot move around much.
I will stay at camp and keep the fire going and food hot, promote ethical hunting-above all sportsmanship and comradery.
I love to see moose in all seasons--I am always amazed at the toughness, determination to survive the elements, predation and man.
I have seen cows with one week old calves 20ft from my boat while we were spring fishing, bulls thrashing the bush and unfortunately many highway kills.
I can truly say to whoever reads this that each and every moose I see is a trophy--a true world record be it through a camera lens or a scope.
