Not sure I would call a moose "handsome".

The author got quite lucky with that 243 shot. A good read though, sounds like a good location to hunt moose.

Bullwinkle? Next he will write about how he took a 100 yard shot with a bow and dropped "bambi" in her tracks. Then, upon arriving to the scene of the kill he realized it was a complete pass through of the eyes.
Was this article a joke?

The moose are not the only "bull" in this article. It's a scientific fact that they have poor eye sight. It's odor (notice that giGANtic nose) and sound (huge ears in front of built-in satelite dishes) that give you away. Cheez-um. . how close does he expect to get while the moose stands there squinting, trying to recognize him?

And the .243 at 600 yards. . . even if it did happen, no responsible hunter/author should go telling everyone about it. I think it only encourages some other numbnut to try the same thing.
