Moosings - Idaho - 2019

Recommended Posts

Congrats on the tag.   I've been putting in for the goat tag in Idaho because of the longer season and time conflicts of the moose hunt.   I really want to apply for the moose tag once I get a few other items handled.    Good luck on your hunt.   Kill a big one!!!!!!!

I woke up this morning and poured a cup of coffee, then said to myself, "I haven't been on CWT in a long time." Man, am I glad I did. This is the first post I looked at and what a surprise to see you drew a moose tag Andrew. Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. The only thing I know about moose is I drank a lot of beer back in the day at the moose lodge. The trailer looks like a good start for camp and I wish you the best of luck.

Thank you TJ! I hope you can get some enjoyment out of the thread, and who knows, maybe it will encourage you to come around a bit more often again!

Spent the last two days up here in God’s Country enjoying cool weather, long day’s and some beautiful scenery. 

Got to re-familiarize myself with the roads, talked to the game warden and a couple of landowners. 

Man’s of course it wouldn’t be a trip without some kind of hassle. Took a rock between the treads on the weak sauce factory tires the rental truck had. I was very disappointed to find that the jack provided by dodge was barely tall enough to raise the truck on perfectly level ground, which this wasn’t. So I spent an hour or so digging a hole with a stick to allow us to put on the spare, which was full-size, but not regular matching tire. It was marked limited-use and was about as thick as a water balloon. I was really worried we Would cut that one trying to get out. Luckily we made it back to the highway, but we did have to cut our scouting a half day short.

Range day. Today was my second session with the Viper HST I put on my 700 BDL in .300 WM. This rifle was slated for a build as I didn’t think I would be rifle hunting anything bigger than a coues deer this year. Well things changed so I took it out of the safe and paired it up with a scoop I had intended to put on my son’s rifle.

Last time out I was test driving the 200 gr ELD-X with limited success for whatever reason. Today I shot another group with the ELD-X and compared it with the 180 gr Accubond.

As you can see the Accubond is the pretty clear winner.
