Shot placement is key when hunting moose
Moose are Maine’s largest big game animal by far. Bulls have been known to top the scales in excess of 1,000 lbs! Because of their sheer size and body mass, they can be difficult to put down, even with a high-powered rifle -- if shot placement is not good.

Shot placement is key, even more important, really, than the caliber of choice!
