Moose Hunt Video

PostBy: sterling40man On: Wed Oct 28, 2009 11:08 am

I recently went on a moose hunt with my father-in-law. I video taped about 22 minutes of it and thought some of you would enjoy it. For those of you who don't know, you need a permit to hunt moose in Maine. They give out approx 3,000 permits per year. This is the second time that I've been on a moose hunt. Last one was in 1998 when my brother had a permit. It's a great experience. Enjoy the video. :D

Good video, Bob. Nice Moose! :clap: :up: Perfect size for eating. Did you have the tenderloins yet?
Congrats to your father-inlaw. He looked excited. Reminded me of my son when he got his first bicycle. :D

My father inlaw went waaaay up into Canada for a moose hunt back in the late '60s. They drove for two days and then flew way up north for the hunt in a seaplane. He spent about $5,000 and when he came back he was pissed. The moose just fell over like a target when he shot it, he didn't get much adventure with that one. Then the indian guide was going to saw the antlers off it with a chainsaw for him. He said after paying $5,000, I want the whole head to mount as a trophy. The pilot said "that's fine but the plane won't fly with you and the head, we'll leave you here and take the moose head back for you. I'll be back in a week to pick you up and have another $2,000 for us". He has a nice set of antlers now. :lol:

I think he was just coming over to look at your truck.
Not very neighborly of you to shoot him.

Hunting is like that. Having gone hunting a few times, I was amazed at how BORING it was, and not particularly
sporting. More like a sucker punch than anything. Now, if the prey was equally armed and aware of the game......THAT would be exciting! That will not happen...
unless you join up and qualify for "special forces". True Sportsman......winner take all! Now that is HUNTING. I hear there is
some fabulous hunting in the Pakistan/Afghan border areas. I do not have the nerve for it, but many do! ;)
Sport aside, it does provide control of various wild animals. Here in MA, trapping has been restricted for a while. Low and
behold, we have beaver issues now... Coyote are running around grabbing pets and an occasional toddler. It is funny to
hear the anti hunt people cry, then cry louder when the family poodle gets whacked by wild animal. Damned if you do....
As an AG guy, I have no problem killing animals. To me, it is work, not so much sport. I can see why people do not like
it. We would have way more veggie eaters if people actually could SEE where the MEAT comes from.... Killing is never a pretty
thing, regardless the reason for or the necessity of it.

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....
