Default Newfoundland Moose

I traveled to Newfoundland with 3 other guys for a moose hunt from Oct. 1st through Oct.8th. It was spectacular and I had the time of my life. The scenery was beyond description ( although hard as hell to navigate!) and the people were among the friendliest I've ever met. All four of us connected on moose. I killed mine with a Remington 700 XCR in .270wsm at a distance of 90 yards. It was awesome how the guides could call them in using just their voice. Now for some pics.

While packing for the trip I found a stowaway in my luggage!



A couple of scenery shots.

Eagle




Check out this rock!!?




Typical view from mountain top.



Moose photos.








As you can tell by the look on my face, I'm stunned at how huge they are!![:-]

Last one........ group shot.



There you have it...... enjoy!

The bow was in the equation until I saw how much I was going to have to carry through the airports. The other 3 guys brought both which was rather cumbersome and they ended up using rifles. The shots ranged from 90 yards out to 273 yards. I wanted to get a moose first and maybe try with a bow on the next one.
