She used the driver on this one, but it was truly a once in lifetime experience for her. She has always loved Moose a little more than most for some reason, so it was truly a blessing to get such a beautiful animal.

That is an awesome pic. Articchill, all of these are all really good photos. Any chance us DIY public guys are better photographers? Or was it just so much more difficult to obtain success that we really want to document it in a way that will last a lifetime?
