Opening Day Bull Moose

Opening Day Bull Moose

Our party of 3 had a license each to fill in MMA 8 near Corner Brook Newfoundland. We spotted a cow off in the distance and my father leaned over the hood of the pick-up and fired. We weren't sure if we hit the cow or not. So we waited for a bit and then went to take a look. The cow was down in some thick brush not far from where we spotted her standing. Not long after 2 more cows arose from the thick bush behind us. We passed on those. Shortly after that we heard a crack in the woods and a loud stood the 13 point bull. I dropped down on my stomach, knowing I only had one shot, because the moose spotted us. I chambered one 30-06 shell and fired. Perfect shot. Dropped him in his tracks......
Then the work began...

great opening day for bull moose!

Hey Corey... Way to go. Congratulations to you and your hunting party.

Now you have meat in the freezer to try out all those good moose recipes, eh!

Have you tried making Jig's Dinner with moose yet? We took a sirloin moose roast a few years ago and then placed it in brine it for about a week. Once that was done we made the traditional Jig's dinner. BTW: My wife was born in Cornerbrook. lol

All I can say is awesome!
