What he said.
My only question would be, "What would you do with 500 pounds of hamburger?".
A couple of years ago a good friend and fishing partner of mine shot a "small" moose up in Essex county in Vermont (that is way up in the sticks where the men are men and the sheep are damn glad of it) that weighed in at around a thousand pounds. He had most of it ground up in hamburger. He said that was the only way his wife would eat it. :th_lmao: I don't think he got 500 pounds of it, but he got enough to give me 20 pounds of it as a gift and he bought a huge upright freezer to store it in.
All vac sealed and I do believe he still some plenty. So, yes, it can be done. :th_lmao:
BTW, if you've ever had a nice juicy moose burger grilled on the Weber you will never want to go back to beef. It is also incredible in meat pies. The old French Canadian way, eh.
I have never won the lottery draw for a moose hunting permit so never had a chance to get my own.
