Giant Moose Shot

Here are the particulars:
The moose in the photos is an Alaska-Yukon moose taken by Eric Arnette
on
September 5th,2004. It was taken in the Kilbuck Mountains, which is 380
miles west of Anchorage, AK. The rack is approximately 75 inches wide,
has about 36 countable points, and was unofficially scored by a person
who is not an Official Measurer at around 264 points.
In the near future it'll be posted on the Boone and Crockett Club's web
site On "Trophy Watch" where the official score will be announced once
it is entered.

I have wondered how they got him out of the location, hope they didnt have swamp to go thur; We shot one over my Ely,MN that was just an average ,but we took a small 321 Johnnsrud chain saw with vegtable oil in the chain lub and cut it into half and then half again so we had four quarters then cut small green tag alder abouteight feet long and tied the quarters onto the alder . There were four of us , we tie one quarter on and one guy on each end, carred that sucker about mile thru swanp boggs knee deep , we each had to make two trips doing that and took over half a day

My first impression on this photo was that it was somehow photoshoped (digitally enhanced/altered). After looking at it for awhile I don't think it is; however my initial reaction is still the right one.... that beast is unreal!

I think they said 75", that's awful big. I doubt that that was done in photo shop. What you see is a guy well behind the head of this moose and most of the forground taken up with the moose head. The size, big as it is is decieving. Most point and shoot cameras have a rather wide angle lense on them and the distort thing's like that. I did a photo of my ex like that with a 35 mm lense on a 35mm camera. her leg's were huge even tho her body from the hips up looked normal. She wasn't real pleased.

75" comes out to 6'3". Look's much bigger than that huh!

Never never never photograph a woman with a wide angle lens. It makes her butt look big, especially when stuff behind her used for reference looks much smaller. But if the worst happens and you must break that rule, NEVER say, "Hold on a second while I get my wide angle."
