The question isn't who is going to let me; it's who is going to stop me.

    Wow!!!! That's some good eats.

    You can hunt moose in Colorado, but there aren't many of them. And most hang out in town where you can't shoot them. 

    As to table-fare, I'd trade every deer I've ever shot for a single moose. (Tip of the hat to JerryBobCo's wife.....that was an incredible meal).

    Funny, but they were ripping off the branches of several apple trees.

    Oh, I know why they were in your yard, you should be furiously skinning and cutting up moose instead of posting pictures, it's like they want you to eat them when they are that close to your shed door, easiest moose you would ever pack out :D

    Oh man, the stain on the driveway would be epic. Think Fargo woodchipper scene.

    This is to give it some scale. That's a 2002 S-10.

    There you go, no way you want to load one of those in the S-10 with the garage door so close....

    Hey, Moose. Why the long face? :)
    That's a whole lotta meat on the hoof.  Shoulda shot 'em. Yummy steaks and chops and roasts. :)

    It's an event when we have deer and turkeys and the occasional bear show up in the yard...moose on the other hand would be kinda epic

    I'e never hunted moose, but I once slowly backed away from three around daylight in Grand Lake, Colorado beside a dumpster. We caught each other by surprise, and they won. They gave no ground, while I couldn't give it up fast enough.

    Why the four of us were attracted to a dumpster at daylight is beyond me, But, if I'm gonna shoot a moose, it'll be in Grand Lake, Colorado. Beside a dumpster.

    Maybe some vegans threw out some old vegetables and the moose (mooses, meeces) smelled that.
