Two Monsters: Bruce Young’s Trophy Moose Hunt.
During the latter part of September 2010, my friend, Luis, and I hunted for a week with Tom Sallows in Alberta, Canada. We traveled away from the main camp each day to access a remote area that Tom was most familiar with, which he told us held the largest Canadian moose in the province.
Little did we realize that Tom was to be proven correct – by both of us – only a couple days apart in our hunt.
On the third day of the hunt, Luis shot a B&C (final score) 200 inch gross, 189 7/8 net bull moose with an off hand shot at 180 yards. It was a remote kill and it took us until 10pm to haul the quarters and the rack/cape back to the truck.
This was to be the largest moose taken in Alberta in 2010 with an outfitter.
A couple days later, we came upon another large bull moose that was preoccupied servicing two cows. It was my turn to take a trophy bull. I also succeeded killing the moose with an off hand shot at 100 yards. Fortunately it took one shot and he dropped.
This bull moose had a final score of 189 gross and 187 6/8 net – also making the cut for Boone and Crockett for a trophy Canadian Moose. This bull moose was the second largest taken in 2010 with an outfitter.
Needless to say, Luis and I are both thrilled with the results of our moose hunt with Tom. It is just incredible that one guide could take two hunters out and that both hunters would take B&C trophy bulls – only two days apart. It is a true testament to Tom’s intimate knowledge of the region he hunts, his skills as a guide/hunter, and his persistence in helping his hunters get the best possible trophies available.
Tom works hard to help his hunters succeed, to the limits of their capacity to cover ground, and will pace the hunt to meet their needs. He is also a nice person to spend time with and can be relied upon while hunting off the beaten path in remote, rugged country.
I strongly recommend Tom to any hunter interested in taking a trophy bull Canadian Moose in Alberta! You won’t be disappointed.
