Possible State Record Moose

10 posts in this topic

I read in the Strib this morning of the 2 St. Paul fellows who might have shot a new MN Record Moose. Just wondering if there are pics anyewhere? Would be cool to see.

Deer opener is just around the corner!! smile.gif

Forget the Moose. The quote from "Slap Shot" is just as good. "Here's a name for you nostalgia fans: Clarence "Screaming Buffalo" Swamptown. I'll never forget an exclusive interview in which Swamptown revealed that he calls his hockey stick the "Big Tomahawk," and he usually refers to the opposing players as "the little scalps".

"He used to get deliberate penalties and darned if he wouldn't......" See the movie, its a classic.

Oh yeah, Nice moose.

I have a hard time believing that is a state record. Hell of a nice moose, but a state record? I just don't see it. No width on the palms, few overall points (excluding the brow tines) and not much mass. I've seen a lot of MN moose sheds much bigger that than boy...maybe the bigger ones just have never been killed I guess.

considering there are only a few moose shot a year I think it's very possible to be a state record....It's not like canada where hundreds of moose are taken a year.

      Jim you are still alive? Long time no see....   Truck went through on Buffalo last night I guess. Saw the pics on facebook looks like the dude drove right into open water good thing it was shallow. That fog was brutal that would be scary dropping in with that fog like that.

      Went out with a friend today. Looked like it was the month of March with the temp and water on the ice, and they bit like it was March as well! Ended up with 30 sunfish (7 1/2 to 9 in) 6 crappies and 2 perch! Was a lot of fun best bite I've had yet this year! If your going out I would advice to wear cleats espically when that water on top of the ice freezes.

      The DNR should post a sign telling those unfamiliar with the lake that driving out from the main public access is unsafe. I don't recall ever seeing anything like that over there.
