Lost Interest? No way!!!




Out in the garage past few days hanging 4 quarters of moose. Getting ready to make steak, sausage and jerky


I appreciate your efforts Junk. You have given me too much to think about lol. Might keep the center bar and maybe do vertical grills on each side of it


Right now, moose comes first.


Thanks again
Gary

I'll put the center bar on with vertical bars. How does it attach? Might help if I do a couple different bar sizes. Doing it on the cheap don't mean you can't have some style. You have your priorities correctly aligned, meat for the whole village is first! It is tempting to ask about bagging the moose. There can't be many codfishes out there who have done that. Congrats!

Here in Newfoundland we get moose licenses on a draw type system. I usually get a license every 2 years. And the last 3 moose I've taken, I shot them all standing in almost the EXACT same spot. No lies. It's a perfect spot for moose. Every time we go in (wife goes with me), we usually have a choice of which animal to shoot. First year there were 3 standing together, next time 7, and 3 days ago there were 4. Keeping this place a secret.


Thanks again and I look forward to your renderings.


Gary

Very good. They are all delicious creatures of habit. Eyes are on the side of their heads, that means prey. I was wondering more like how much meat and what rifle and range. Here in Arkansas we have had a drawing for elk tags in recent years.

I think sweet revision #16 here is a winner. Just like you said, and could see in your head. The more bars you can put, the better it will look. I don't think 32-4 Ford grilles will be tall enough, hence the sketchy ideas for making those. I like this one, and there were a couple I didn't upload after seeing it. If theres any other specific changes you think up and would like to see in the future, dig up this thread anytime or pester me and we will give it another go.

Matt

I like this last the best as well.

One other thought I had was thin vertical bars in the center, (either chromed or painted) replacing the single wide sheetmetal bar; with horizontal bars on either side. I think it might visually lighten the area.

I made a portion of my grille out of key stock. I tried building jigs and forms like you see the metalworking guys do, but ending up bending it by hand in a vise, which went really quick.If you over bend it you just bend it back. Much more forgiving than the tubing I tried first. I welded it together and then had it chromed. Not as lightweight but definitely sturdy.

I'm guessing 200-225 Lbs of meat. Not a big bull, but big enough. A few choice steaks, roasts and soup bones and the rest will be sausage and jerky. I do it all my self.


I use a Winchester Ranger, 270 cal. Bolt action. About 130 yard shot this time around. A lot of guys figure a 270 is too small for moose, but I like the accuracy. Anything within 200 yards and I feel comfortable. Haven't lost an animal yet.


Here's a pic I took 2 years ago. A little blurry but that's 3 bulls standing side by side by side about 250 yards away in my secret spot.

Click on above. This stuff would make a very interesting grill. It's available in many mesh openings and wire diameters. AND $10 for a square meter. That's 39 3/8" X 39 3/8".

My '36 Willys' grille was shot so I made this one from sheet aluminum and chromed gas welding rod. Gotta get creative!
