We found the spot where the bull was standing and I started to follow the track. Suddenly I realized I had picked up the track which brought him to the sight, not away from it. So I said I would start a 180 degree sweep, which in most cases works very well, and it did this time as well. Only 70 yds from the water lay Doug's moose which measures 45". He hit the animal in the right rear flank angle forward into the lungs.
After the 4 hour cleanup we did do an evening hunt and continued again the following morning. We kept going out calling throughout the week with no response, but we did find a few places with plenty of action, we just needed to make it happen.
On Friday morning we started out hunting the West end of Harrop Lake. Slowly moving East throughout the day and planning to be at the Lodge for dark around 8PM. We had stopped at numerous spots looking for sign and we were just on our way up the river when came around the bend to find the second bull looking right at us. I stopped the boat, waiting for Bob to get the rifle ready and I decided I better give a quick call to maintain his interest, and it worked. With a single shot with the bull facing us the Bull dropped in the river. Bob's bull measured 45 3/4". When you look at the antlers they look so much alike.
This week was very enjoyable, had two gentlemen with great character, people you like to be around and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute.
