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.

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
