Re: Sooner or later we all go there...

27 inch bull moose;

That fellow was not even out of puberty, shpould be good to eat.

I have lots of pictures but not of moose.

We had an "Argo" along so the moose I got, a small one as well 40" was pulled up to about 10 feet from the door of my escape.

Did not take a picture, didn't think it would look good on a calender.

My moose is now roasts, steaks, ground meat, stew meat, and sausage.

I also made some native dry meat for my next hunt.

Doug

Take them the way they come... The Limited Entry Hunt Authorization was for two weekends at the end of September. It was the only bull we saw. Ditto - the transformation into roasts, steaks, burger, and sausage.

Instead of an Argo, I had my wife along. At 125# she cannot pack as much moose as the Argo nor ford swamps and creeks with ease, but much more cuddly in the Escape in the evenings.

I am still trying for some cool "hunting camp" photos with the Escape. I am not deliberatly trying to annoy the "Urbanite" crowd, it just happens

Re: Sooner or later we all go there...

We do not have limited hunts on moose in the Yukon, each hunter is allowed one bull.
A 27 inch moose is the best to eat, I do not hunt for trophies, I hunt for meet

I belong to P.E.T.A. (People Enjoying Tasty Animals).

We took out two moose, did not have time for the third one for our group.

I understand there were six moose taken with in a few miles of our hunt.

I understand one moose taken measured in at 74" The record locally is I understand 86".

There are a few places where hunting is not allowed or restricted.

The snow is starting to fly up here but the temperatures are still pretty good (Minus 10C).

I may go for Caribou in a week or so, we are allowed two each of them.

My moose was closer to the 86" mark if measured from nose to tail

Sorry, no pictures of moose and Escape trailer in the same shot.
