You never hunted moose eh? You would be able to tell a moose if his 48 or 50" ? never had a deer you shot and when you got to him he was smaller then you thought?

Why is moose diffrent?

If it was the same show i saw, the moose had to be 50 inches, the guide told him it would be close, but it was up to him on weather he pulled the trigger or no not. He {the hunter} was warned it could fall short, he shot anyway. Hard to measure a moose on the hoof. The dude that shot him paid the fine, Well's was his name if it was the same show.

Actually - moose are different. IMO, it is much harder to see a 2" difference on a 50 to 60" frame mounted on a 1500 lb body. Most hunters here have a hard time telling the difference between a button buck and a doe.

In truth - it happens. But if it keeps happening to a certain outfitter, guide or hunter you can be certain that the game wardens will notice. Once could be a mistake, twice is a warning, third time it starts to look intentional.

Because they show how easy it is to make this error in rack judgment and it show its ok to make a misstake as long as you own up to it .What do you think the wardens would do if a hunter makes that mistake then tries to hide it or just leaves the moose there to rot ?? They would put you in jail or fine you so hard you will never worry about getting a license and coming back!

This is a great new trend that these shows and celebs are owning up to and showing alll the misstakes that they make .It makes us realize we are not that much differnt than they are we just enjoy annonimity in the real word and on line they do not have that luxury.:zip:

Yep, unless you have decades of experience judging moose on their feet, it is very challenging tring to judge a moose that is in the 40-50....happens more often than thought
