Moose Hunting in the Yukon
It's not every day you get such a great perspective on moose hunting in the Yukon, but the latest Wide Open Spaces "Shot of the Week" highlights the stunning scenery, the thrill of the shot, and one hell of a trophy.
Sent in from Wide Open Spaces reader Phillip Halliday, the video below shares the scene. Halliday was guided by Tuchodi River Outfitters, covering ground on horseback, and scouted out this giant specimen on the first day of a 12-day hunt.
Watch below as Halliday lines up his shot and gains the full realization that, yes, he had just shot a moose:
Location: Northern British Columbia
Hunt company: Tuchodi River Outfitters
Game: Yukon Moose
Bow: Bowtech Insanity, 65 pound draw weight
Arrow: Wac'em 3 blade 100 grain Triton
Interesting Fact: Halliday exploded his first bow two days before his trip, and was forced into purchasing a brand new one the day before. He finished sighting it at 4:00 am in his backyard before leaving for the airport at 6:00 am.
