It's always nice to get out of your vehicle to get closer for that awesome photo when you see a Northwestern Ontario Moose.

5 to 10 years old likely. They are only fun till you shoot them, when you have to drag them out of the bush it is all work.

That there would be a year's supply of meat for some lucky family. Don't snigger, I've known a few families who have depended on game as the sole supply of meat over winter.

Mooses!!!... they're such a "killer" vegetarian species eh?!!!

 

I guess they're fair game if you're too afraid to hunt wild hogs with a pocket knife!

 

Canadian wussies glorifing killing mild mannered vegetarians... what's next???... Steelhead fishing??? :rolleyes:

Fake racks are a dime a dozen these days. Speaking of which, has anyone else ever seen that documentary about that woman artist from Quebec that walks with the Moose?? I've seen it twice but haven't seen it in over 10 years. Amazing show. She does exactly what you're talking about Doc and she has the Moose in the palm of her hands. And her artistic talents are amazing.

Imagine if you will.....pedal to the floor in reverse on a dirt road in an astro van....why ???? because a mild mannered moose wanted to ask for directions to the water hole??? i dont think so ...

 

luckily the dust storm from going so fast in reverse stopped him from charging on

 

GCD i had bow for supper last night ...and Caribou tonight ...if there was wild boar around these parts i would have that tomorrow night ...but i think ill settle for an American delicacy of a milked out Holstein from our local Mc Donalds

Seems like a reasonable thing that most people would do for fun.

 

Then travel to the arctic covered in seal blubber and blood and throw ice at a polar bear, surely it wont be provoked. :dunno:

Geeze those are Huge :o

 

I've seen a fair share from a distance and a handfull up close and personal but none quite that big.

Beautifull and healthy I might add....

 

If one of my buddies brought me that to butcher I think I'd have to charge some overtime LOL!

Certainly a trophy Bull if you're into that sort of thing. I prefer the taste of calves myself and rather let those big fella's keep makin em!!

What a beautiful animal, a true symbol of Canada.

Never understood how someone could kill such a large animal, but to each their own.

 

Cheers

Thats one big old bull, probably on it's last years of fertility.......probably taste like an ole boot aswell not a very good specimen to hunt for the table, better off to leave this old dude alone to live out it's last days.
