Re: Moose?

I'm assuming that the covering over the moose's rear was to keep the sun, and therefore heat, off the meat? I've had to do that many times especially when I'm alone because it takes so much time to process a moose. While I've had plenty of snow falling I've been lucky to not having to deal with one in the rain. Is that not luck? Nice bulls all and the very best of meats!

Re: Moose?

Have been on 5 moose hunts to Ontario Canada. These were fly in drop camp hunts just me and my brother. Where water is the only transportation shooting moose close to water is like shooting them along your highway, Kill them in your road a no no. killed one in a beaver dam, a lot of work. My brother shot one along the edge of a lake from a canoe. Third shot broke the bulls back and caught the aorta vessel. He was down and dead when we got to him. On dry ground, 4 steps and over the canoe lay down a quarter. Easy one. Have a moose trip to New Found Land set for Oct 5th. this year. Hope to make it to Alaska on a moose hunt, Before I go for the dirt nap. Debating with myself 9 1/4 lb. 338 WM or 7 1/4 lb. 300 WSM both stainless/ synthetic stock. How much walking I have to do will be the breaker. Decisions Decisions.

Thanks. That was in Alaska on the Salcha river; about 120 miles upstream from where it spills into the Tanana.
