Nice work getting your "first retirement buck".  Do you know anything about moose?

They are big and huntin buddy and I found a cougar moose kill this fall. It was partial uncovered. I went up and snooped around it poking with a stick to get a better look. Checked back the next day and something had covered it back up for me.   :chuckle:

I guess the cat wasn't far off while I was doing an autopsy.

Now my week is 6 Saturdays and a Sunday. Huntin buddy told me that and I never got it until I retired. 

Nice ! Little confused by title at first

Not sure why. It was a true statement.
