Just got back from our annual moose hunt. We hunt in one of the early rifle season units and tried calling but the moose were not interested. On day seven we cut and chopped a bunch of firewood at camp and half an hour later we heard a bull rubbing antlers on a tree. We headed straight for it but it quit raking and we never found the bull.The weather was cold and snowy or rainy the whole trip and it was a challenge to stay dry. The temp never got above 5 degrees and one night it got below -5 degrees and froze the water in our camper. We tried a new spot the last night on Day nine and while I was walking a skidder trail in the forest I started seeing moose tracks and lots of them! I sat for 20 minutes then continued stalking quietly down the trail .I had only moved 70 yards when I spotted a moose 50 yards away watching me. I slowly raised my gun and shot. The shot felt good! The moose bolted to the left and a big cow I had previously not seen followed the moose I shot at . I ran down my trail because it looked like they were going to cross it and as I rounded a corner ,the moose I shot at (a young bull) ,was staggering on the trail trying to stay standing.I didnít know where the big cow was and as I was going to finish off the bull ,it reared up on its hind legs and collapsed.

No sooner did the bull go down than the cow came running back on the trail towards the bull to see what was wrong .I thought about it later and the one explanation is that the young bull was her year and a half old calf and she was seeing what was wrong. Since we had tags for a cow and a bull I took the broadside shot she presented and we had two moose down.

It was 5:00 p.m. so we gutted both moose and propped them open to cool. The cow was huge! Any time Iím lucky enough to be in on a moose kill Iím always impressed at their size and this time was no different. It started snowing heavily so we left them to cool for the night.


That night it snowed a foot of new snow so at 8:00 a.m. we started skinning and quartering to load them on the bike to get them back to our trailer. We had to build a trail so we could get the bike to the moose and it was slippery with the snow covering everything. At 2:15 both moose were loaded so we started heading for home. It took us two hours of driving logging roads to get to pavement .

We pointed the truck for home but the roads were slippery and snow covered. In the first 2 hours of driving we saw a pickup and trailer flipped over in the ditch,a two trailer pulp truck in the ditch and across the road and two other accidents. We drove carefully and got home without incident.

This was the toughest hunt weather wise that Iíve been on in the last 5 years but also our most successful. Other years itís been too hot but this year we hunted two weeks later to hopefully get cooler weather and we got more than we wished for. Another great hunt for the memory bank and a great time spent in the northern bush.

Well this year I donít need to go for a long drive. I went for couple days of relaxation and maintenance at my camp. I always go during moose season because I see them frequently. Canít get a adulte tag but always have my calf tag in my pocket.

Well this year was my lucky year. I got up at 745, had a quick coffee and decide to go for a walk on my trails to see how many trees came down during the last wind storm. As soon as I reached my food plot, a big cow and her 2 calf where walking away from the field. I quickly did a bull call and the cow stop and the two calf also. One calf was hidden behind small bushes. But the other gave me a neck shot at 85yds. Bang! Down he went and my hunt is done in 12 minutes.

Iím hunting alone so a calf to feed my family is more then enough and good meat.

Pretty happy. And now I have all the time in the world to do my maintenance around the camp.

Life is good
