    Yeah, I don't think it was exactly designed for comfort for the moose, but the 'elgtrak' is a cracking bit of kit, goes pretty much anywhere and has a winch to help pull in the animals or pull yourself out of a ditch. You can stand in the trailer itself and drive it, you just pull the controls back over, three of us did this right through the middle of a marsh to collect a calf. We also have a big plastic sled we can tie on to the back and drag behind if there is too many animals or if the moose is down a ravine we can strap it to the sled and use the winch to get it up to the elgtrak.

    I agree, dragging one would be a nightmare!

    csl, we take the animals back to the barn and skin them there, then then hang for a number of days depending on the temperature before they go to the butcher and the processed meat is collected the next day, I'm not sure how it is with other hunting clubs, this is just how we do it.

    Nice bull there Nell, looks like the dogs did a good job plucking the beast

    Has been a great year for me this year, being able to go alone with the dog through the forest trying to stalk the moose is another ball game completely.
