They are a weirdly built critter, thatís for sure! This one I guess was really big bodied. My taxi had to use a Canadian moose form because non of the shiras forms would fit. Extend his nose. Definitely a big animal! Took us 5 1/2 hours to cut, quarter and pack him 60 yards! Ha
i can only imagine. We got ours out whole. Used a chain saw winch and winched it 200 yards down to the road. We had a trailer to load him up and the 4 of us couldnít drag him up the ramp to get him into the trailer. Iím sold on those saw winches.
Happiness is being in the woods!!!

If we were smart, we would have done the same! That being said, we wanted the FULL experience, pack out and all! Donít need to do that again!

60 yards downhill from the pickup with melting snow covering grass and small bushes that still had leaves on them, what could go wrong?  :chuckle:

Same boat here. We used haywire and a block to get mine up to the road. But 4 of us couldn't get it onto the trailer. Had to use the winch on a quad (with the quad tied to the trailer) to load it.
