Moose Hunting

Shiras Moose Bull in FallPaddy & Mick, two retired friends, flew to Canada for an adventure.

They chartered a small plane to take them into the Rockies for a week of hunting moose. They managed to bag a total of six. Loading the plane to return, the pilot said the plane could take only four moose.

The two old timers objected strongly. “Last year we shot six. The pilot let us take them all, and he had exactly the same plane as yours.” Reluctantly the pilot gave in and all six were loaded. The plane took off.

However while attempting to cross some mountains, even on full power, the little plane couldn’t handle the load and went down.

Miraculously, surrounded by moose bodies, Paddy and Mick survived the crash. Climbing out of the wreckage, Paddy asked Mick,” Any idea where we are?” Mick replied, ” I think we’re pretty close to where we crashed last year.”
