Two hunters used to go off together moose hunting every winter, but they had never had any success and always came home at the end of their hunting trip without a single trophy to show for it.
Finally, after a lot of thought, the pair of hunters came up with what they though had to be a foolproof plan.
They bought themselves a very authentic looking female moose costume and learned the mating call of a female moose.
Their plan was to hide in the costume, use the female moose mating call to lure a bull moose out into the open, then come out of the costume and shoot the bull. It was an ingenious plan, what could go wrong.
So, one morning, the two hunters got up early and set themselves up on the edge of a clearing. They put on their moose costume and began to give the love call of the female moose.
It didn’t take long before their call was answered and a huge bull moose came crashing out of the forest and came out into the clearing.
When the bull was close enough to them, the hunter in the front of the moose costume said, “Okay, let’s get out and get him”.
After what seemed like an eternity, the hunter in the back of the moose costume shouted, “The zipper is stuck! What are we going to do!?”
The hunter in the front of the moose costume thought for a minute, then said, “Well Frank, I’m going to make out that I’m nibbling on some grass, but you had better brace yourself!”
