I don't hunt and it depends on the prey but only the good hunters consistently bring home big bucks in this area. It is a lot of work as many of them spend weeks in the woods prior to hunting season to achieve that. Certainly a lot of the guys go out in the woods and get lucky but those that are consistent are the ones with skill and dedicated to it. It's just like fishing, if you throw a worm on hook you're going to be waiting a long time for that large Walleye or Musky. Possibly a lifetime....



I agree with Richard. Deer hunting is very difficult. A deer is the only creature in the woods that really doesn't make a sound untill they hear or smell you. Then you hear a whistle and puff, puff, gone! You need to know where they are, where they bed, where they eat, and where they travel. It's a lot of work. You need a lot of patience. It does get pretty boring sitting in a tree stand all day. But, when that big buck arrives and you take it down, there is no better feeling for a hunter.

Moose on the other hand is quite easy. You still have to do some scoutting prior to the hunt. All you do is ride along dirt roads. They love to come out in the early mornings and late afternoons to eat in the fields of clover or vegtables that farmers plant. If you see a cow, there usually is a bull not to far off. You just wait in your truck till they come out.

As far as the hunt in this post, we were driving in a road and the bull came out. He was about 300 yards away when we first saw him. I used my brothers moose call. He walked right up to us. If I would have kept calling, he would have walked to about 20 yards from the jeep. 100 yards was close enough for a 7mm rifle. It was a fun day. :D

I finally saw it! :up: :clap: Thanks for posting that - that was just awesome!! Tell your father in law we all said CONGRATS! 8-)

Man you guys got some nice country up there! If it wasn't for the damn winters....... :lol: I need to move out of this hellhole.....

Do they get 'em all butchered up the same day? Down here it takes them a few days at least ... and that's just for deer! You eat 'em yet? Should be some excellent meat - perfect size for eatin'! 8-)

Niceeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee,

Congrads to the father in law.

And that didn't look like a "road" to me. It looked like a melted off snowmobile trail. Part of the ITS ????

Damn every year we go to the Moosehead Lake are and only ever saw tracks in March. Of course we were told that we really should be concerned if we see one on the trail. One day I'm going to have to head up your way. Looks like there will probably still be some meat left. I'll bring some beer with me !!!!!!!!

Thanks everyone!

Rick, what do you mean it doen't look like a road? That's our main highway around here! :lol: It's actually a road that was built a few years ago to divide property lines. One of the guys in the video owns the property on the right side of the road. The guy who owns the left side is from out of state and wanted to have some kind of housing development built there. It's all swamp land. The state won't approve it.

You really don't want to see a moose in the trails. Especially at night. You won't win. :stretcher:

My Dad and I were Smallmouth-Bass fishing in West Grand Lake, a few years back, and was moving the boat from one spot to another, when we spotted what looked like a floating log pile about a 1/2 mile away. But noticed it was swimming from one island to another. I turned the boat in that direction to get a closer look, and it was a HUGE head of a Bull Moose, full set of HUGE horns. He just kept right on swimming, what else could he do? Watched him until he climbed out of the water and headed in land at a casual walking pace. :shock:
