This is a picture of our hunt today, Sept 22, 2008, we set out to get a bull moose and came home with a 300 pound bear. Jim shot this bear from about 250 yards with his new custom built 338-06. Trisha got a moose permit so Jim thought he would build a rifle for himself to take on the trip. He is the subpermitee. So check back for updates. These pictures did not do justice but you get the idea.
This is a photo of the moose and Jim and Trisha at the check in station, he weighed 732 pounds and his rack is 39 1/2 inches. It was a great hunt! Jim shot him with his J. White Custom 338-06, and Trisha shot him with her J. White Custom 25-06 loaded with Barnes Bullets. We were able to retrieve the bullet on the far side of the hide. The bullet doubled its size and gained a .5 grain from hide and flesh caught under the “petals” of the bullet. The Barnes penetrated both lungs. All three shots were triangular as far apart as the holes in a bowling ball.
This picture is of a moose that our customer Dave shot using his custom left hand 35 Whelen and a 225 gr Game King hand load. 854# ……. 53 5/8 spread …. 17 points
Joshua shot his first deer in Atkinson around 5:00. It was a 6 point buck with a non-typical rack and weighed 147 pounds after being dressed out. Joshua is so excited!!
