Hi to all of you older and not so old geezers. I’m 82 years of age and shot my first Alberta moose while hunting with WKO in 2002.
Rick & I were hunting an old clear cut area during the moose rut season of 2017. Rick tried his cows call which was answered by a bull. Grunting continuous, he moved in the direction of the logging road we were on. Suddenly, he stepped unto the road, saw us and darted across the road. My 30-06 roared to life propelling a deadly Winchester silver tip into the moose and dropped him to the ground.
Several hours later while transporting my moose to a processing plant, Rick stated, “That makes you the oldest person to take a moose with WKO.” “The oldest had been 79.” I told him that I had killed a moose in 2014. “Seventy-six had been the record.” Guess who had taken another bull in 2011?
My bulls were not large but five hundred pounds of meat fill my freezer. I am a meat hunter but large bulls are here. One taken during my hunt had measured 57 inches.
What I’m getting at is: Geezers of all ages who are interested in moose hunting, call Rick & Rita, book your hunt. Start your own record or older geezers may try to break mine.
