A Novice Hunter Shoots A Moose Far From The River

In by Chris on September 28, 2010 at 12:49 am

The antlers nodded above a thick plant. Through the rifle’s scope, Byron could even see red berries. Then the moose moved just right. The nose appeared, then the head and neck. Finally the chest. Byron motioned towards himself with his finger, and the bullet entered the moose perfectly above the sternum.

For two hours Byron sat by the moose, waiting for his guide to come and teach him how to cut the animal into manageable pieces. As the sun came up, the flies came out of their hiding places. Flies as big as the barn swallows in the contiguous states.
