I was talking to my mom last night and she was wondering why I haven't posted pictures of Justin's moose. I've been meaning to do this ever since he got back, but just kept forgetting - so here are a couple.

Now the frustrating part of the story. So last year when Justin went moose hunting he waited for the "big" one, passing up on 4 or 5 legal size moose that he could have shot - so he ended up coming home with nothing. So this year he said that he was going to shoot the first legal moose that he saw because he didn't want to come home empty handed. So the day after shooting his moose he took one of the guy's that he went hunting with out to help him. Now this kid is a totally city boy and wouldn't get a moose unless he accidentally hit it with his truck - he really had no clue. So Justin took him out, showed him a good hunting spot, called the moose in for the guy, woke him up to shoot his moose (yes, he was sleeping on his four wheeler at the time) and then the guy got buck fever and had to shoot the moose 7 times!!! Now as you can see from the picture below that this moose is about twice the size of Justin's - really irritating! I told Justin that he should of charged the guy money for this great guided moose hunt.

Oh well - he came away with a whole ton of meat so I guess it doesn't really matter. So, anyone up for a moose burger? Come on over, we'd love to have you!!!

Hey a moose is a moose, right? I'm sure that if Justin read that he'd be shaking his head, but I know that's what you were thinking :).

Ha,Ha! Yes, you're right, Justin is probably shaking his head. But hey at least I sounded like a good red neck wife - right? :) I'm still a work in progress.
