We all know that Congressman Greg Gianforte is quite the hunter, and a life member of the National Rifle Association. But even for a lifelong sportsman, getting a moose tag is quite a big deal, and then actually landing a moose is an even bigger deal.

Congressman Gianforte (R-MT) and his wife Susan did just that, after trudging through the snow following a late September/ early October snowstorm. Check out this photo that Gianforte shared on his Facebook page (shared with permission here):

Gianforte added this note:

Blessed to draw a moose tag and fill it with Susan at my side. It was just the two of us yesterday. Low twenties, snowing and blowing. Visibility was low, so I still hunted into the wind through the willow bottoms and found this bull. She and I managed to get it out whole with a little help from my tracked ATV. She even helped me skin it. #thankful
