Gone hunting

For Moose:

Hunting season is upon us once again and this year I was lucky enough to get a moose tag. Unlike other game animals (where you simply go to the store and buy a tag for them), moose are a ‘limited entry hunt’ (LEH) animal. In other words, you have to apply for an LEH tag in the spring and hope that your name gets drawn which allows you to buy a tag and hunt.

This year, I was lucky enough to get such a draw; my first ever. So, this morning I’m off to find me a moose. It is the early draw so I’m hopingĀ  there will be some snow on the ground. It is not often that I hope for snow, however without snow on the ground locating and tracking a moose is much more difficult.

Here’s hoping it has snowed ‘up top’ and I’ll be looking for a moose making tracks in it!

Bull moose droppings are flat on one end. These are from a baby bull hence the small size.
