If you would stay in the state long enough durring hunting season you'd be able to kill one

I didn't see one in any other state either :bash:

Unfortunately I wouldn't know and will have to take your word for it Ice. I have a less than 1% chance of drawing a moose tag again so I will have more time to look this year, assuming of course that I don't draw that sheep tag instead. :chuckle:

Hides do shrink when they are tanned.  Taxidermists usually stretch them and done right they will return to their original carcass measurments.
