I'm more impressed by your name calling skills than your reading comprehension skills. Reread the original post. I did not miss the moose from 20 yards away.

Comments like "dirk diggler" only show that he probably never has hunted in his life. Like I mentioned in another post I have brought down a lot of game and one thing you learn is you never criticize another personís hunt unless youíre there :-)
I instructed archery for many years and there are just to many variables not known to make a comment on your hunt. I have always found the hunt the best part of the trip, bringing down of the animal was always secondary and from the pics it looks like you had good cool weather. There is always next week to look forward to and save a steak for me if I come by next year.

More to the point....

Why on earth would you want to shoot a moose with a bow and arrow in the first place! It's not like you can fit it in that SIB!

Thanks Dan, perhaps Dirk would be so kind as to regale us with stories of his personal moose hunting experiences.

In order to make this statement with such certainty, you obviously must know:

a) The maximum weight capacity of my SIB (which is...?)

And,

b) The typical weight of a field dressed and deboned bull moose (which is...?)

And,

c) The total weight of us 2 hunters, fuel & gear (which is...?)


To make things a little simpler for you... the SIB is more than capable.

I believe these may have been his last moose?

Is it that something they do ? are they not a bit more wary than that ? .. When stalking deer, I can never get closer than about 120 yds, and that takes some hell of a doing
