Boxes per moose for shipping

How many boxes per moose does it typically take for shipping purposes from Newfoundland?

We drove back with ours two years ago. We had foam 6 coolers roughly 36 x 14 x 14. not sure what the shipping boxes look like but I think these were the same coolers they use for shipping minus the outside cover. When you heading up?

Hunt starts September 27th. Was all set up to drive but looking like it may only be a couple hundred more to fly and ship which would save me a few days driving and vacation

Depends on the size of the moose and how much the butcher decides to steal!

Funny that after I started to bone out my own deer and elk I was surprised how much more meat I got off these animals.

Laylow, yes my brother and I each killed a small bull a couple years apart in Maine. The 1st year we filled 2 100 qt. and 1 110 qt. coolers completely full. When I shot mine we had taken a 4th cooler incase I got a bigger moose, went to pick up the meat and it all fit in just 2 coolers! Moose were similar in body size.

I had 6 of the boxes below. Approximately 300 lbs of boneless meat. I didn't ship it, but hauled it in my Chevy Suburban in the boxes. The meat was boned out, vac sealed, and frozen. We put the meat into plastic bags (like a garbage bag), then the styrofoam box, then the waxy cardboard box. The meat was still frozen solid after 40+ hours of driving and/or sailing on the ferry.
