That's amazing, Mike. I know 3 guys here who've hunted moose hard the last 2 years and have not seen a legal one, only the odd cow and odder calf.
We been having a huge wolf problem locally. Just up North of here, there are 2 small herds different brands of caribou, woodland and mountain, I think.
Anyway the game branch finally came to it's senses and have been taking care of the wolves that have been harassing the caribou - shooting over 200
in the last year alone.

Thanks! I'm very happy with it. Butchered the front two legs myself, looking forward to all sorts of good sausages, pepperoni, jerky, etc. Getting the hind legs done professionally, along with the backstraps.

Good to hear they're taking care of the wolf problem up there. A pack swam over to an island where I hunt, and they were destroying the place. We were going to take matters into our own hands as they don't even require a tag, but it seems that they have decided to move on.

Fortunately the area around Princeton is very healthy for moose. Our whole hunting party saw a total of 7 or more legal bulls in the one extended weekend up there. They're pretty skiddish right now that the rut is over though. Oddly enough, we saw more bulls than cows! Probably has to do with the LEH only tags, and a short season for spike-forks. Due to the later winter, they were still up high in elevation and spread out, which makes seeing so many bulls even more amazing.

That is amazing, however the cows usually stay low. The wolves might change that with enough pressure.
Around here, there really isn't much up and down, but further North, it gets a bit steep, in the Pine Pass.
This was a fishing camp at Azouzetta Lake, 2 August's ago.
