Man, a dead animal in the middle of the road would be great!  I'd crack a beer, get some tunes going on the truck radio and get to work!  Hope you guys all fill your tags!

Every situation is different. I shot my moose a mile and a half from the truck last year. We quartered it and boned it out with just our knives. We then packed it up to a game cart and used a old closed road to haul it to the truck. They are big standing on the hoof, but man do they grow when they hit the ground and you walk up on them. It did take us about eight hours to get it broke down and back to the truck.

We winch elk into the truck if we can get to them.  We have an atv winch mounted to a header board. But my moose would never have made it near the truck.  Shot it 100 yds from the river we floated and we had to skin and quarter it as it lay.  Four of us couldnít even roll it on its back, skinned top side, cut the ribs out whole and took hind quarter and shoulder after that, then rolled it over and did the other side.  My brother in law in Idaho has a boom truck and is very popular during moose season as they do drop a lot near roads though.

Plan on quartering it up. I have been in on 3 bulls in the lower 48 and even if we could get to them with a truck we quartered them up. Itís just easier to handle them at the kill site and after.

Last year my bulls front quarters weighed 94 lbs and hinds weighed 96. Shiras moose arenít near as heavy as Canadian or Alaska Yukon.
