    I started hunting a bit on the east coast of Canada over 25 years ago. I just got back into through a lifelong friend out here in Alberta this past Fall. Got to enjoy hunting elk and deer with a borrowed compound bow. My season ended with no harvest of game but an amazing experience and got to have a small part in field dressing a 1000 lb moose. Can't wait till next summer when we start scouting again.

    guessing a small part is the best part of dressing out a 1000# animal.
    Welcome back to the life.
