When you wait this long for a moose tag, getting your priorities straight is definitely the name of the game.
Receiving an elusive moose tag in the mail is akin to winning the lottery. Some wait decades to get the chance to harvest a moose; others may go a lifetime. For this Saint John New Brunswick man, it was a dream come true after 12 long years.
He posted the following ad September 20 on the online classified site, Kijiji:
MOOSE LICENSE/TAG – I NEED YOUR HELP
I have a moose hunting licence for tomorrows hunt.
I already rented a cabin and bought a new gun.
Unfortunately I did not realize when I bought the gun and rented the cabin that this is going to be on the same day as my wedding and honeymoon weekend trip, so I can’t go.
If you are interested and want to go instead of me, it’s at the Saint Ann’s Catholic Church at 5 PM.
She will be the one in the white dress and you can ask her where the honeymoon trip will be. I don’t remember exactly where it is I’m just so excited to get my first moose license in 12 years.
P.S. I promise to pay it forward next year if anyone is in my shoes.
Good luck to all the hunters out there who got their moose licence!
Talk about pure genius. Although I am fairly certain it was all tongue in cheek, there’s a part of me that wonders…
That’s how hardcore hunters can be! The ad has garnered plenty of attention, and laughs, across social media and has been viewed 120,000 + times.
A hunter with a sense of humor. It doesn’t get much better than that.
