When Built: November 1995
Built to attract customers to their sportshop, The Moose Hunter and Outfitters , Highway 17, five minutes west of Thunder Bay. It was also designed for posterity to last at least 100 years.
The two hunters guard the entrance to the designer's property. One is his wife Millie and the other is a self portrait. Both are dressed in replicas of Andre and Millie's hunting clothes. The real Andre and Millie are standing besides their larger selves.
Here is a picture of them from across the road:
There are plans for three giant moose to be built out of wood (bull, cow and calf). They will be l6 to 18 feet high. Also planned is a l6 foot statue in memory of their son, Dale Andre Allen, a famous moose caller. He will be in the pose of moose calling (hands cupped together performing a moose call). Dale died of melanoma (skin cancer) on December 30, l997 at the age of 39.
Thunder Bay also features a giant Curling Stone and used to feature
