Default Switching My Focus?

I've been thinking "Deer" all this time, and yet when I talk with the folks who are living back in the woods where I grew up, they tell me that I should think "Moose!"

I was told rather directly, that the chances of getting a Doe are pretty slim these days.

Perhaps due to over-harvesting, or a migratory shift or something.

That being the case, I have been exploring this idea of hunting a Moose!

My experience with them up close (not hunting them) has been that they are stupid, generally speaking. Don't tick em off, either! There are a couple of examples on YouTube of folks who go extremely close (bow hunter example), and nearly had their lives taken from them (the hunter that is).

Here's one: Moose Hunting Danger !!! - YouTube


It's a big animal!! More to field dress and lug out, more meat to store, very intimidating animal. I'd want to be ready for a second shot after some of the video I've seen of hunts done.

Perhaps I should mutually join a "Moose Forum" as well? (lol).

Now THAT would be a rack worth having on my wall!! There are elk up there, and Caribou. I'm surprised he didn't recommend THEM!!
