    Excellent shot placement too. He most likely didn’t go far, or he dropped right in his tracks. Thanks for sharing.

    Great photo of the results of a successful hunt! Thanks for sharing.

    How animals are customarily weighed varies a great deal from place to place. In the U.S. most hunters think in terms of "live" weight (the amount the animal weighed when it was running around the forest). Or, we think of "gutted" weight, which is the animal after it is "field dressed" by removing all of the entrals, but including the head, legs, and skin.

    You say 190 kg (418 pounds) "dressed". What parts are "missing" compared to live weight when you use the term "dressed"? Just curious.

    The weight in Norway is only meat and the bones inside the meat.

    We say that the dressed weight is 50-55% of live weight.

    That's what I was thinking. So, it excludes the head, the forelegs, the skin, and the entrals. And it makes the live moose weigh in at upwards of 400 kg or better than 800 pounds. Thanks for the clarification.
