Re: So the little woman lucked out with a moose tag
Perhaps the biggest bummer was that our digital camera bit the big one the morning of the kill. I could barely make out the wife and moose in the camera and subsequent photos. Just looked like fog. I bought a new camera the next day. The old one has been a POS since it was about two years old. So, sorry, no photos. We did snap a cell phone photo to send out to family and friends, but it 's just doesn't have enough pixels to view bigger than about 2"x2". Lack of photos is a real bummer, but she doesn't even care. She's just glad to have it past her, and to have a sign in the garage where she parks her car that says "Reserved for Moose Killers".
Thanks for all the tips and supports. Perhaps one day I will luck out with a high end tag.
As a Taxidermist I look at hundreds of Whitetail Bucks every year. I know that I have seen many different ways people judge the size of racks on live deer. I think for the most part they all are pretty close. I'm going to give you some measurements that I have noticed being right on in just about every deer. We have used it in the last couple years and have only been off by about 5-6 inches. We do study the deer while bowhunting so we get a little more time to look at them....
