Thankfully, I was finally able to bring this 130-pound monster boatside and release it to fight another day. Unquestionably, this was a … Read more »

With nothing more than a four-inch drop-point knife I was taught how to break a large bull moose down, bones intact, into nine pieces that I could pack. And while that may seem impossible, I have done it on … Read more »
