Just finished unpacking from our moose trip to the allagash region. We had a succesful hunt although we were looking for something a little better than we took. I was designated camera man, and took some wonderful video of the hunt. I even managed to capture our permittee killing his moose. This was my first experience hunting moose and I have one thing to say…...bring a big gun and place your shot well. It took 3 shots from a 30.06 and he still lumbered off 50 yards. I was amazed at the size of these animals. He had a 42 inch spread and weighed just over 800 pounds (dressed out). Here is a picture of the moose and all of us. We are all USW members. 3 work at SAPPI, and I work for Huhtamaki. Local 9 and local 449.
I am not sure how to get the video on this site….....any suggestions? I have seen it done but dont know how.
