First archery kill for my oldest boy. While we were skinning/quartering, our good friend was nice enough to start a fire and cook us some back straps. It was good fuel for a late night pack out and a great experience.
Beauties and The Beast: This is my ten-year-old daughter's Shiras moose taken in Idaho in September 2021. She is on the right holding the rifle and her little sister, who is seven, is on the left. We hunted together for five days until we spotted this bull at a little under a mile from the truck. We moved in as quickly as we could to where we had last seen him and relocated him. She made a good first shot and a couple follow-ups before he went down. My seven-year-old took a really shaky video of the kill that will give viewers motion sickness, but does capture the shot and celebration when he fell.
I focused on the moose for this picture and thought the photo turned out pretty neat.
