Moose

4 posts in this topic

Did some scouting while I was looking for some sheds and found a dead bull moose. It had about a 42inch spread, which is cool as moose are pretty rare around here. To bad it died but still awesome to find moose antlers attached to its head looking for deer sheds.

awesome find, you should post a pic of the horns on here. I actually found a bull moose shed while looking for deer sheds last year. TOTALLY unexpected. I was pretty ecstatic though. Doesnot compare to anything like a 42 inch spread, but its a nice looking paddle. Doesnt happen often in these parts. (DULUTH) a little further north, they get quite a few, but There cant be a lot around duluth. Actually I found the paddle in Taft.

A shame that a mature bull would pass away... disease? wolf?

I'll try to post a pic when I get time to figure out how. I'm not sure what the moose died from but I would have to lean toward disease as the rest of the bones were in a relativity close proximity. Did'nt seem like the work of a wolf.

      Last year it was Dec. 26th before they opened the road up out of Morris pt. for 4 wheelers. Thinking its looking like that again this year. Hope I can hold out. Between the ice show and this website getting very fired up.

      Yep. I'm on Schultz's Bay. Which side are you on?   Had to head in to Alex today around noon so I took a little side trip to Manthey's Bay because that is typically the first area that has walkable ice. Stood at the 145th Ave access. To the right was all open water, straight out was ice for maybe 30 feet and then open water and that extended to the left into Manthey's Bay for a ways. The rest of the Bay looked frozen over from what I could see from there. Nothing anywhere on the lake looks like it would be walkable yet. Lots of ice on the lake and still making more. The winds have been keeping small pockets of water open scattered through out the ice that has formed so the ice thickness is going to be very inconsistent for a while. The winds have started to die down so with calmer winds I would think the lake might lock up in the next day or two. Just so the snow stays away for Saturday.

      Picked up my first custom rod, a TUCR power noodle, the new black Betty free fall and plenty of tungstens!

      This afternoon I checked Norris lake and it is locked up except for a few small holes in the middle.  Twin lakes on the other hand is wide open. Pic is of Twin lake.
