new minnesota state record moose?

7 posts in this topic

I have heard from a couple people and one being my uncle who registers them in Finland that there was a moose shot off the echo trail not sure where, that beat the old record my ten inches. Has anyone heard this or seen pics? just wondering. not trying to spread rumors if this isn't true just trying to figure this out.

The story of the moose was in the Star Tribune last week. There is another forum on the topic. I believe many people had the same comment about the size, but if the Strib ran the story, their must be some truth to it.

How does that moose compare to your uncle leroy's? ha ha ha. Did you ever stick a bear up there?

I herd yesterday that the guy who scored it did it wrong. From what I understand it is not the new record, it has been rescored by a boone and crocket scorer. and if I remember corectly it was in the 180's

Good Luck,

Dave

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
