    Local moose

    This guy and another one of equal size have been hanging around the airport. It's fun to go watch and photograph them. I didn't put one in the freezer this year, I'll have to work at it harder next year. I love seeing them though.

    That's so cool, I was in Anchorage to see my son come home from Iraq and saw a big bull at Bernie's bungalow! Great pictures also!

    Bryan,

    I'd guess 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 max. His bases aren't very heavy and in other photos you can see that his dewlap is still long. They tend to freeze off on the older bulls. They are at their best around 7 or 8 years old.

    I would guess about a 45" spread. Wouldn't be legal in most areas but would sure be fine eating in the areas that are "any bull"!

    Airports a safe place for a moose....not so much for humans.
