moose season

Yesterday was the first day of archery moose here, today I was helping a friend and as we were driving around he mentioned he had been hunting the day before. I told him I couldn't draw a bow because of a shoulder tear , but knew a legal bull was living between our places, as we drove home we took that route and spotted the bull feeding , long story short ,I got to help field dress my first moose this year, and am looking for some fresh moose on the grill. The best part is the moose fell within 50 yds of the rd and we had a younger guy do all the packing.

That's great, and damn nice of you to put him on it. I get just as much enjoyment seeing a friend kill a good animal, especially if I'm there.

Sounds like more of a harvest than a hunt.
Enjoy the meat.

Instead of being on foot when they initially saw the animal they were in a vehicle, makes no difference. he had to stalk the animal within bow distance and make the shot just the same. You don't "harvest" with a bow. Even if he had been gun hunting he still had to get out of the vehicle and put on a stalk. How it was spotted initially, (on foot, horseback, or a vehicle) is immaterial. Good, ethical, hunt, and you should be very happy.
