2017 Moose and Goat Success
« on: October 05, 2017, 10:09:06 AM »
2017 has been an alright year so far...   :dunno: :chuckle: I was able to harvest a 10" goat in Northern BC in the end of August and my dad just filled his OIL tag on his moose here in WA Monday afternoon.  And a few more critters.  My WA spring bear and Montana bull.  C'mon deer season!

Wow!  What a year!  You should  probably retire from hunting, because it's all downhill from here.  😀

What unit was your dad's moose?

Haha, probably.  And 49 north, early.  He's been putting in for 40 years.  Was at the very first moose drawing in WA when they did it out of the barrel with cards.  He just turned 70 this year. Was due.

Talk about "living the dream"   :tup:
We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

Solid work to you and your dad, Jon. Hoping to be able to hang my tag on a goat close to that caliber.
Thanks for sharing.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield
