Maybe a tractor rental should come with every moose tag

HUNTINGDon Gunter of Post Falls had all the tools for going out to fill the coveted Idaho moose tag he drew this year: Rifle, pickup, knives and saws, strong hunting partner…

But he also was prepared for the bigger job of handling a moose.

After passing up three bulls, he finally took this beauty where he could use the winch on his ATV to drag it whole into the back of his pickup.

To complete the job, he had a tractor front loader at home to raise the carcass for skinning.

He looks to be the perfect moose hunting partner for the next guy to draw a tag for an animal that easily weighs 800 pounds.
