I cut and wrap all my own meat and I don't weigh it but I'm guessing there would be over 300 lbs of boneless, sinewless meat in my freezer. Our moose here aren't nearly as big as Yukon/Alaska moose or even as big as moose further north in Alberta.

:notworthy:    :clapper:   Great story!! Many of us would love to go moose hunting some day. If you would share your set up with us. That will give us an idea what it takes to get the job done on a moose.

Sure. I shoot a 55lb ( at my draw ) Cari-bow take-down recurve. My arrows are 628 grain Patriot Missles tipped with 300 grain 3 blade VPA broadheads with a 100 grain brass insert. On this bull I got about 20 inches of penetration which was enough for two holes. Last year I was using the same setup  with 250 grain broadheads for an arrow weight of 587 grains. I shot a slightly smaller bull at about 15 yards and got a complete pass through.

Congratulations on a fine bull.
The broadhead used, regardless of how sharp, is nowhere as important as being able to place it in the correct spot.

Randy,
I sent you a PM as I'll will be (God willing) in your neck-of-the-woods next fall.  

It is so great that you and your Dad are able to enjoy these adventures. I'll bet he loves sharing the stories of your bowhunts with his friends!

After my Dad died Mom told me he had been carrying a news clipping in his wallet about something I had done (good news!).
If the mind wanders, so too will the arrow.
