Sweet!

Thanks Bentley!  You're off the naughty list.  Problem is the list is way too long of people who haven't shared their results.

My father and I just pulled a Maine moose tag!!!! :yike: :IBCOOL:   I'm the sub-permittee, but I'm still stoked!

Miles,

Being a sub-permittee in Maine is awesome. You're there for the hunt, and you get to carry a rifle (or bow, or shotgun, etc.), and either the primary or the sub may shoot the moose. Most primary permittees are fine with their sub-permittee making sure the moose doesn't get away, so they can take the meat home! You only get so many chances. There's nothing quite like that full truck bed with the legs sticking up four feet above the sides! You think you know how big a moose is, you think you know what you're hunting, until you see this massive animal on the ground in front of you.  Make sure you have (plenty of) friends on speed-dial, ready to come help you get him out of there. Things to bring along that you wouldn't consciously expect to bring are a chainsaw and/or an axe, both nice and sharp, because the rib cage is made of bones and cartilage as big or bigger than what holds your arms or legs together! At a thousand to twelve hundred pounds for a decent male (the average I see is 900 to 1100), he's 5 to 6 times bigger than you.

Oh, how I envy you! I applied for twenty-five years, and never got one. My friend Bruce was picked three or four times during that same twenty-five years. So how do I know how cool these hunts are? You guessed it - I was one of the guys on speed dial who showed up for the grunt work of getting the bull out of the puckah-brush!  I actually went along, but didn't carry a weapon. They like swampy areas, so odds are good you be dealing with some wet areas where he goes down, or you'll struggle through some water and muck getting him back to the truck.

Have a ball!

Dead eye,

Thanks for the post.  The post of mine that you quoted was from last year.  I went on the hunt with dad and had a blast.  The pictures are all on the Maine moose thread you also commented on.  We were successful in getting a respectable bull.


This year I was lucky enough to draw a bull tag, and now my dad is the sub permittee.  Hopefully we can have a repeat of last year and get a nice one.  I just continued on with the same thread for this years hunt.
