Wow, that is a giant. Could

Wow, that is a giant. Could you imagine seeing that in your sights, it would take me a little while just to calm myself to get the shot off.

I hadn't heard this story yet

I hadn't heard this story yet but I'll keep an eye out for it as that is in fact the biggest moose I've ever seen. I have no plans to ever hunt them in those areas only here at home if I ever draw the tag. Like you I will never make enough money for a hunt like that one. Especially because I always spend it all on the smaller hunts I enjoy so much.

nested?

It's hard to tell from just one photograph, but it kinda looks to me like someone nestes some sheds inside an already big moose's palms.  Its a big bull, there's no need to fake it any bigger!

It actually is a real moose,

It actually is a real moose, and it really is that big.  It was, however, shot 6 1/2 years ago. 

And, it is NOT a pending world record.  It was certified, and it was the 118th largest ever shot.  Makes me want to see the other 117 Wink

That story just keeps going round and round and round.  I guess it should though, cause it's a beast!!!

LMAO, Broken, you really need

LMAO, Broken, you really need to calm down  Those moose are huge for sure but make no mistake, they are hard to find in thier enviroment, and even harder to get out of the woods after down. Go apply for a moose tag, go out and bag one then please get back to me/us on how the trip went,LOL Best of luck to ya.
