Congratulations! Definitely a bucket list hunt!
Is it hard to get a tag in Maine for a cow?

Depends if your trying to get drawn or decide to buy a tag. I?ve been putting in for draw since 2012 and have not been drawn. This year I bought a tag that was for sell.

Great job on a dream hunt Kim, getting a moose in Maine is a hunt of a life time, rifle or handgun, congratulations. Whose knife did you use for gutting, skinning??

Dick, I?m almost ashamed to say
. Although Jesse owns two Ralston Knives, he did not have them with him. And...although I build Ralston knives, I haven?t had the opportunity to build myself one. That being said, I had a razor sharp custom on my side (made by David Winston) that I gladly handed it over to Jesse to use. 😎
And the cobblers children go bare foot. Congratulations! glad to hear that you enjoyed yourself here in vacation land.

rougerocco Maine reinstated the moose hunt in 1979. my father and I put in every year and we didn't get one till 1999, though i know of a few people that got drawn 3 and 4 times in that time frame. It's luck of the draw no big deal. Thank you Lord for allowing dad to go moose hunting before he died even though it liked to kill all of us. I think now you get points for putting in and not getting drawn, not sure as one moose hunt was enough for me. The next moose i get is going to be by accident with a truck and I'm going to sit down and eat em in place, retrieval my foot.

Congrats!! Hope you enjoyed your stay here. I was an alternate this year for my father we ended up with 611# dressed cow. They do get bigger a few years ago my best friend and I shot a cow that dressed out at 855# My son shot a 54" bull that dressed at 995# I shot one last season that was 48" and dressed 800#. The biggest one that I saw weighed here this year was I think 1150 to 1200# dressed can't remember exactly and the rack was 60"s. We are also the home of 200+ pound dressed Whitetails the biggest two that my group shot dressed out at 260#s and the Other at 259#s we also have 226#,235# 201# and 213# dressed bucks. All those bucks were shot by myself my best friend and my father.
