After hunting four long days we spotted this moose bedded down in some sage brush. We made sure we stayed downwind and crawled to within a safe shooting distance undetected. I waited two hours for him to stand up, then took a 300 yard shot with my 30-06 and got him the first try. He's a beautiful animal and I can't be happier as he is my first big game kill. I have been hunting 17 years for elk and have yet to be lucky enough to get one so this was definitely a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
