Moose Hunt

CB has been fortunate this fall having more hunting experiences as a first year hunter then most do in many years of hunting.



He has been hunting birds for the past month, even shot a rabbit. He also had the chance to go on a moose hunt with his father and his grandfather (my dad). Which is a unique experience, MM has been in the drawing for 20+ years and he has only been drawn once to go on a moose hunt. Next is Youth Deer day which is this coming Saturday.


Let me just tell you that I LOVE that this boy is SO passionate about hunting. NEVER thought I'd say that! The initial thought of him carrying a gun in the woods made me feel ill. But after watching MM prep him I have faith that with the continued guidance from his dad he will be safe. I think this is an important life skill and find comfort that he will someday be able to provide healthy food for his family just as his Daddy has throughout the years.

Good to see a young man interested in something besides video games.

Congratulations CB!! I have some male relatives who would be very envious of you! So, when do we get to see it mounted in your house???

You have a real Maine boy there. It is soo nice to see a youngster learning and enjoying hunting. Sure hope youth day gives him a deer. Enjoy whatever part of that yummy moose you get.

Hunting is good if kids are being taught the proper ways and safety. Good job CB!
