Shiras moose in Utah - Ann Cooper

Utah Hunting Update!

- posted by Rose Marion

We have a lot of hunters as friends here at Smith & Edwards… and when they send us pictures of their hunt we can’t help but brag ’em up!

There are lots of reasons people go hunting…. to enjoy nature, get away from it all, spend time with hunting buddies…. and if you bring home a trophy, that’s the frosting on the cake.

Why do you go hunting?These 4 hunters were lucky enough to bring home some great pictures and great stories, take a look…

Ann Cooper’s Shiras Moose

Shiras moose in Utah - Ann CooperMy husband, Harlan, was able to call this bull in from across a canyon and nearly a mile away. After the first cow call, he came from a patch of aspens and headed down to the creek bottom, where I shot him at 60 yds. with my rifle. He measures right at 40″ wide, and I nicknamed him “Daggers” because of his extremely long front brow tines.
