    Have seen several live moose in Maine and New Hampshire, including a couple bulls. Stopped at a check station once while grouse hunting in Maine, guy had a beauty on a utility trailer, took up the entire bed.

    Old joke

    Where’s the best place to shoot a moose?


    Next to a backhoe.

    Long story short shot an 8 point buck in Maryland while i was stationed there in the Marines. Anyways shot him still hunting back to the house on a 4 wheeler trail. Guy that let me hunt jumped on his bobcat I jumped in the bucket. Easiest recover I’ve ever made.

    Congratulations on a great hunt!. I miss my dad and wish that I had had a chance to do some north country things with him. Enjoy your moose. I've never tasted an eastern moose but I'll bet they are as good as the Yukon variety that I've had the chance to munch on!!

    No Joke Fitch 😁. If people are hunting near an active logging operation they'll often throw a skidder operator a few bucks to get their moose out. The State really pushes quartering these days. I suspect they've had issues with spoilage for moose that are brought out whole. The hide is so thick it just traps the heat. We had a borrowed trailer lined up for the trip but after seeing what the weather was going to be, I told my dad to leave it behind.

    Thank you all for the kind words!

    MattM37, I saw my first moose when I was 8 and have been hooked ever since. One tip I can offer for moose peeping is to find some likely moose habitat, then hit it early on a cool late summer morning around late August early September. I've seen the most moose leaving the cabin around 5:00-5:30am when you get those nice 40-50 degree mornings as fall gets closer. I think the combination of hormones ramping up and the smell of fall really get the moose moving.

    "... I almost collected a big bull with Silverado last week ..."

    Bullet weight?
    Powder charge?

    My B-I-L was just in the Adirondacks leaf peeping, and went to some locations where Moose are sighted but they were not out that day. They are doing good but vehicle accidents take a toll. In the 19th Century there were more Moose in the Adirondacks than Whitetail. I used to hunt in a place called Moose River Plains.

    Great hunt!

    I almost collected a big bull with Silverado last week coming down a logging road. He was not bothered by the truck and just sauntered off.

    My brother- in - law has kilt a couple in Alaska. Haven't heard about his latest trip last month. I can tell you, moose steaks are excellent. Cold leftovers between buttered bread are still great.
