One of my best friends drew a moose tag in the vermont lottery this year. I got to be his second shooter and another one of our good was with us as well. I’ve never got to go on a moose hunt because it is hard to win a tag in the Vermont moose lottery. You could wait 20 years if not more. So once we knew we had a moose tag we started scouting a couple weeks early and we found moose sign, but not a lot of it. There are only around 3500 moose in vermont take or give a bit. The first morning we got up real early, made breakfast, made our lunch, got our backpacks ready, and headed out while it was still dark. Got to where we wanted to be right as it was getting light out. I started doing some light cow moose calls and in the distance we could hear three bull moose coming towards us. After half an hour a huge moose came to about 40 yrds. from my buddy and I. As my buddy counted to three, we both shot at the same time. And it ended up getting two kill shots on the moose. It went about 40 yrs. and dropped. Then the work began because we had to figure out how to get a 800 lb. animal out of the woods. With its horns having a 43.5 in. spread. Once in a lifetime moose and best time in the woods I’ve ever had with friends hunting.
