Text Appearing Before Image: e part ofthe guide. It should be away from the smoke of the camp, near open ground, such as themargin of a lake, pond or barren, where the royal animal may be seen as he draws nigh.When he comes you are going to see him swaggering up the marshy shore, or hooking hisway jauntily through the bushes in sheer insolence of strength. He is announcing now forthe benefit of all concerned that, if there is any other bull moose around, he is going toshovel him into the lake if it takes all night to do it. If you are nervous as the crisis ap-proaches, lean your gun bush fashion over a stump or fallen tree, aim carefully, keep themuzzle down, and then, if the first shot apparently fails, man the lead pump and shootwhile there is anything in sight. Suddenly you will hear a whoop from the guide, who hasbounded over the brush in search of the moose, and, as you follow him with heart beatingwildly, you will catch a glimpse of a massive horn protruding from the heather, and then of a Page Thirty-seven Text Appearing After Image: FREDERICTON :: NEW BRUNSWICK • CANADA giant form stretched out upon the ground, and you will realize that one of lifes concentratedmoments has come to you.

For many years the record moose was that shot by Sir Harry Burrard onthe Canaan River, the horns of which measured 5 feet 3 inches from tip to tip. The headof this moose was mounted and presented to the Prince of Wales. All other claimants, how-ever, have been obliged to haul in their horns in the presence of Lezar Russell of Tracadie,who, in the autumn of 1917, shot a moose on the Nepisiquit with an antler spread of 72inches. Dr. W. L. Munroe of Providence, R. I., shot a moose on the Upper Nepisi-quit in October, 1907, with an antler spread of 68^ inches. Mr. Stephen Decatur of Ports-mouth, N. H., shot a moose in the Tobique country Note About Images Please note that these images are extracted from scanned page images that may have been digitally enhanced for readability - coloration and appearance of these illustrations may not perfectly resemble the original work.
