Jack who knows where Costco is located.
Yes, we always added a bit of pork fat to the ground, so it would fry nicer.

It's probably best not to put Pictures of dead animals on this trailering forum since no doubt there are going to be a variety of opinions about hunting.

Similarly, we've learned that it is best to remember this is an international trailering forum. There tend to be cultural differences between Canada and the US when we rub up against issues like gun control. Online conversations can quickly become overly-hated and spoil the focus of the ETI forum. And strain online relationships.

Moose... Now that's one I'd like to try Jim. We don't see those in Phoenix.
How does Moose taste?

My wife and I both got a moose permit back in 2007 and was able to "catch" a moose! Lol!

Moose meat is excellent and is in fact the largest animal in the deer family!

Just got back from dropping the trailer off at the storage facility, and I'm glad of it! I find it very stressful having to plow around and clean off a trailer sitting in my yard.

Moose ribs cooked on a Weber grill are great. We got our moose in the BWCA of Minnesota and had to portage the moose for over 6 miles .

Can one find Moose in a restaurant in Chilliwack or Vancouver when we come to pick up the trailer? The kids would probably enjoy that memory!

Hi: Greg A... It's really too hard to get a Moose to sit still long enough to enjoy a meal. Alf

Although moose are widespread around the globe, they are a northern animal. We get them in our yard, but only occasionally actually see them.

My guess is no. Elk and bison are available because these "game" animals are raised on ranches for commercial production (with really high fences in the case of the elk), but I've never heard of a moose ranch, and I'm pretty sure that commercial sale of wild game is not legal in Canada. I've had venison, elk, and bison... but never moose.

Pork fat makes anything fry nicer.
