Moose always look bigger on the hoof than when they are dead. I think its due to them being all legs. Apart from showing the antlers, its not a great photo for showing the full size of the bull. In October our hunting team shot a large cow that three of us managed to get into a tractor loader bucket. We have used the timber wagon, Iron horse (Järnhäst) and quad with trailer to retrieve them. A couple of years ago it took six of us to drag a not so large calf over some rough ground to an extraction point. Made me sweatI was aware that North American moose were usually much larger than Scandinavian moose but to my eye the photograph just doesn't suggest that this is a particularly large animal. I'm sure that Jagare and some other site members have posted photographs previously that really indicate the true size of these animals and the tremendous efforts needed to move them to the larder when you've been fortunate enough t o shoot one.
I think Jagare at one time posted pictures of him using his iron horse timber drag to lift and move a moose that he had shot or was shot by one of the other members of his shooting club, and I've also seen photographs of larger timber forwarders to transport shot animals.
