1. Hey All! Lately there has been more and more scammers on the forum board. They register and replies to members requests for guns and/or parts or other things. The reply contains a gmail or hotmail address or similar ”anonymous” email addresses which they want you to reply to. DO NOT ANSWER ANY STRANGE MESSAGES! They often state something like this: ”Hello! Saw your post about purchasing a stock for a Safari. KnuckleheadBob has one. Email him at: [email protected]” If you receive any strange messages: Check the status of whoever message you. If they have no posts and signed up the same day or very recently, stay away. Same goes for other members they might refer to. Check them too and if they are long standing members, PM them and ask if the message is legit. Most likely it’s not. Then use the report function in each message or post so I can kick them out! Beware of anything that might seem fishy! And again, for all of you who registered your personal name as username, please contact me so I can change it to a more anonymous username. You’d be surprised of how much one can find out about a person from just a username on a forum such ad our! All the best! And be safe! Jim

    Excellent shot placement too. He most likely didn’t go far, or he dropped right in his tracks. Thanks for sharing.

    Great photo of the results of a successful hunt! Thanks for sharing.

    How animals are customarily weighed varies a great deal from place to place. In the U.S. most hunters think in terms of "live" weight (the amount the animal weighed when it was running around the forest). Or, we think of "gutted" weight, which is the animal after it is "field dressed" by removing all of the entrals, but including the head, legs, and skin.

    You say 190 kg (418 pounds) "dressed". What parts are "missing" compared to live weight when you use the term "dressed"? Just curious.

    The weight in Norway is only meat and the bones inside the meat.

    We say that the dressed weight is 50-55% of live weight.

    That's what I was thinking. So, it excludes the head, the forelegs, the skin, and the entrals. And it makes the live moose weigh in at upwards of 400 kg or better than 800 pounds. Thanks for the clarification.
