Congratulations on the bull

Congratulations on the bull moose. Very nice pictures you have there. I enjoyed all of them. I really liked the picture of you holding up the head and rack on your shoulders. How much did just that weigh. I hope to shoot a moose one of these years.

Couple of nice moose there

Couple of nice moose there Mike!!!

What part of the state did you get them in?  I weill be back in Vermont in July for a week or so, and I want to bring my son for a drive and look for some moose. 

I figure we'll go up over Jay Peak and head that way.  Maybe catch them out in the open cooling off in the summer heat.

Stunning photos, Groovy Mike

Stunning photos, Groovy Mike -

I do not really know how big a moose can get - this one does not look like he is a record setter but he is HUGE nevertheless...

I see the photo of you picking up the head and antlers - that alone looks like it weighs 150 pounds!

These are great photos - and worthy of trophy standards for sure.

Super work - loved them.

Thank you, moose weight

I think the reason they allow a 2nd hunter on a moose permit in Vermont is just to help with the packing out of the downed animal!

Vermont moose are small compared to Alaskan moose.  I estimate mine at +/- 900 lbs.  In Alaska they can go 1500. Maybe I'll get one of those bog boys someday
