A bucket-list moose hunt recently in northern Maine fulfilled a dream for Game & Fish Publisher Michael Cassidy.

Cassidy had to wait three decades for the chance at a Pine Tree State moose tag, and he did not disappoint with a photo-worthy animal taken near near Allagash on Sept. 29.

But the harvest also marked a milestone for some hot hunting gear that has been creating a buzz with hunters across the country.

Specifically, Cassidy used a Benelli Lupo hunting rifle and Remington Core-Lokt Tipped ammo (300 Win. Mag; 180 Gr.) to down the 600-pound moose, making it the first moose taken with both products, Cassidy says.

"First moose ever shot with a Lupo," Cassidy said. "It was a Maine Moose Dream hunt! After 30 years of trying for the Maine moose lottery, I finally drew my once-in-a-lifetime Maine moose tag!"

Cassidy, who hunted with Allagash Guide Service, was also geared-up with the Streamlight Bandit headlight, Mossy Oak and ScentLok. All performed admirably during the hunt.

Benelli, renowned for making high-quality shotguns, introduced the Lupo last year, and it has become one of the most popular and most recognized bolt-action centerfire rifles on the market.

Remington introduced New Core-Lokt Tipped last month as the next generation of Big Green's iconic deer hunting ammunition, offering improved accuracy and terminal performance to deer and big-game hunting.

The harvested Maine moose will be put to good use, Cassidy said.

The meat was donated to the Maine Hunters for the Hungry, and field-tissue samples were taken to assist University of Maine graduate-study research on the state's moose population.
