after you scan the picture look in under the additional options attach file is what ya want..  and lets see. and a '06 at 50 yards would be more than enough in my opinion..
when in doubt shoot twice

Way to go!  Got one too on Saturday in New Hampshire.  He was a 48 incher with a drop tine on one side, and 20 points.  Dressed at 725# , and Fish & Game said he'd have gone around 875# live weight.  Second biggest on the buck pole before we left (one went 57").

Took him a half mile up a mountain.  No picnic getting him out.

Hay john good shooting. That's a good moose. I shoot a 30-06 remington 700. The bullet weght you used was a good choose. I shot 165 grain on everything. From big bull elk to muledeer to antelope. Even moose. The 30-06 shoot plenty fast and hits hard.In my oponion I shot one bullet weight for everything. Never had a pass throw on elk or moose. A moose is a big tough animal. my last bull I shot was 1200lbs and shot at 200 yards fell with one shot took out both lungs. He only went 3 feet and fell dead. Stone dead. If the bullet stays in the animal all that engery stays in that animal chest the only thing its not hurting a thing its helping you. Try it out you will see that i mean... good luck...
