Joshua Moore - Field Op

Most memorable hunt - I've been blessed over the years to grow up hunting with my dad and grandfather who instilled a passion for the outdoors in me at young age! So when it comes down to picking the most memorable hunt it's hard to pick just one, but as I sat here thinking back the one that stands out the most was when I harvested my first deer at the young age of 8 with my dad! I can still tell u every detail of the hunt like it was yesterday! It was about 20 minutes before dark and she came out and started feeding. I began to shake as my dad helped me raise my single shot New England 20 gauge to the rail. Boom! It all happened so fast but when I pulled my hat up there was the white belly laying on the ground! I don't know who was more excited me or my dad! The big doe turned out to be a button buck but didn't matter to me or him. This hunt will be a memory I will cherish forever! 

 

Favorite game to eat and how to prepare it - Elk probably takes the cake for the best wild game meat I've ever had! There is really no bad way to prepare it, it's better than beef! I do love a good elk burger or steak on the grill! 

 

Favorite game to chase - I'm a hunter and love to hunt about anything that's in season but if I had to choose just one animal to hunt for the rest of my life it would definitely be the wild turkey! Sitting in the woods at daybreak as the world comes alive and hearing that first gobble on the roost, nothing compares!
