45" is a good moose, I am a meat hunter. The bigger the antlers, typically the larger the body. I look to fill the freezer. I have taken some 30's and they are the most tender eating, but only 300-500 pounds of meat and not enough for the family for the year. I shoot the first legal moose I see. I have no desire to eat a tag....again. My largest was a 60 1/4 he was a large fella.
