I do remember you begrudgingly agree to me taking this photo -and then laughing out loud at how incredibly different it looked compared to when you and I were behind the antlers. This is the perfect example of The Guide Photo. The hunting equivalent of the AhabHere’s a better example of the moose I shot this year. We took this photo as a joke and no one has ever seen it. I HATE this photo. Sit on his ass and pin down his ears so there is no size reference. Angle the antler tops away so the inside gap is larger. Is this a 45 inch bull or a 75 inch bull? Who knows. I call them guide photos.
The sheep is meh. His body was leaning on me so he wouldn't roll down hill so I am basically laying on it. Sheep are a bit different in that you'd judge him based on 1. depth of curl in relation to his jaw 2. length of curl through 360 and 3. mass (distance between horn bases). That's why you always see guys having sheep photos from the side with the nose pointing straight up to make them look bigger.
If the picture of WJ's moose in Guide-Photo mode is one that sparked your curiosity, I have your answer.phones and big fingers-- there ---as in how did they get the meat packed out - horses by hand etc etc. especially the evening shots.
