B&C Moose Hunt 2010 with Tom Sallows, Alberta, Canada
During the latter part of September 2010, my friend, Luis, and I hunted for a week with Tom
Sallows in Alberta, Canada, with Wild Kakwa Outfitters. It was an unusual hunt, relative to
the other hunters in camp, in that we traveled substantially away from the main camp each
day to access a remote area that Tom was most familiar with and which he told us held the
largest Canadian moose in the province. Little did we realize that Tom was to be proven
correct - by both of us - only a couple days apart in our hunt.
On the third day of the hunt, after working numerous areas that Tom was familiar with, Luis
shot a B&C (final score) 200 inch gross, 189 7/8 net bull moose with an off hand shot at 180
yards. It was a remote kill and it took us until 10pm to haul the quarters and the rack/cape
back to the truck. Tom was ecstatic and indicated that it was the largest moose he had
seen taken in Alberta. This was to be the largest moose taken in Alberta in 2010 with an
A couple days later, after working several areas, we came upon another large bull moose
that was preoccupied servicing two cows. It was my turn to take a trophy bull. I also
succeeded killing the moose with an off hand shot at 100 yards. Fortunately it took one shot
and he dropped when he was shot. This bull moose had a final score of 189 gross and 187
6/8 net - also making the cut for Boone and Crockett for a trophy Canadian Moose. This bull
moose was the second largest taken in 2010 with an outfitter.
Needless to say, Luis and I are both thrilled with the results of our moose hunt with Tom. It
is just incredible that one guide could take two hunters out and that both hunters would take
B&C trophy bulls - only two days apart. Further, these were the top two bull moose taken in
Alberta in 2010. It is a true testament to Tom's intimate knowledge of the region he hunts,
his skills as a guide/hunter, and his persistence in helping his hunters get the best possible
trophies available. Tom works hard to help his hunters succeed, to the limits of their
capacity to cover ground and will pace the hunt to meet their needs. He is also a nice
person to spend time with and can be relied upon while hunting off the beaten path in
remote, rugged country.
I strongly recommend Tom to any hunter interested in taking a trophy bull Canadian Moose
in Alberta! You won't be disappointed.
