And stay safe, wet conditions, most trails in our area are soft still.
Areas you got into in past seasons may not be accessible.

Yup and I shot a mule deer and the other guy had a moose....

Pope and Young between the two animals varies by 10 inches...so the percentage basis was a small margin.

Does a picture of my wheelbarrel count? That was first thing I've harvested this year with my bow. Good news is, is that my Easton FMJ withstood being shot through a steel wheelbarrel, bad news is, it was out of season.

Scared up a bedded Moose sneaking through the swamp with my recurve yesterday, hoping to have something to add to this thread this year.

Good luck everyone.

So far, I've fixed my drop away rest in the field and called in a 2x2 bill elk. Seen a bunch of animals, been turned down a ton for foot access and been bitten many times by mosquito's. Lots of water in the bush.

Default Freezer filler weird Moose

Took this guy yesterday morning. When he came in at 10yards I couldn't pass on him. He walked 20 yards and took a dirt nap.
