    Need a dog for Grouse otherwise punt. Every retired idle man should have a dog. The benefits outweigh the baggage. Seize the moment

    Great bag of outstanding birds!

    Had to pay some penance to my wife for severe absenteeism from the homestead this summer so cruising the San Juan Islands for a week. Fun, but no dogs and shotgun involved.

    The dogs and I will be in the MN North woods the minute I get home!

    I think they are pretty upset with me for missing a week of the season. I’ll be working hard to make it up to them.

    A tired Kobuk with this years ram. Eight miles from the Cub and two trips to get him and camp back. He wore out 24 dog boots on the rough terrain.

    What was the distance between where you dropped it and the airplane? Just wondering how many have a 300 foot rule. If it’s not within 300 feet of a road, 300’ from the river or airplane...it lives.....

    Is that self-imposed rule with moose only, or other animals as well? I figure my loose limit on moose is a mile (depending on time available to pack and how rough/wet the ground is), but much further with other animals.

    Moose only...I don’t mind packing meat a few miles so long as it’s not ten+ round trips at 100 pounds per load..took three of us nine hours to butcher and haul 7ths of a mile. 65-1/2” spread...

    Good work Mark. This was the first cub moose hunt for me and it took 11 loads for three of us to pack 1.5 miles and 700’ elevation gain. Shot at 830 am and had it all in camp the following day at 2pm. The wife was one of the packers and she carried the one year old on her chest and 40 pounds on her back. She managed 3 loads.

    QUOTE]

    I have a similar moose harvest policy, as I am getting way too old to want to carry the equivilant of a Clydesdale horse out of the woods.

    I switched to hunting with the float cub nearly thirty years ago and my success ratio increased by 400 %.
    Do lots of scouting ahead of time.

    Rule #1. Carry a small raft or canoe. (See “avatar” photo) locate several fairly dry areas near the shoreline to call from.
    #2. Hunt from the shoreline. If you cant throw a rock into the water from where you are, then you may be to far. The lake keeps the moose from getting down wind and getting your scent. (On calm mornings)
    #3. Call the moose to you. Be patient. If they are around then they will find you. As soon as you start calling they know exactly where you are. Don’t go hiking after you call as they will realize you are not a moose and will drift out of the area.
    I have watched bull moose come to the exact spot of a call 10 hours later and bed down. Go back to camp quietly and watch the spot you called from.
    #4. I always shoot for the upper shoulder as they will drop in their tracks. No sense having them run back in the woods or in the lake.
    #5. Don’t hunt alone! I have done this and found I had crossed the” stupid line”. ( I was younger and tougher)

    Practice your calling skills, rather then your hiking ability. ( there is an exception; when in search of the big trophy bulls, as they are hard to pull from cows. )

    I hunt for meat but the Lord has sent me two B&C monsters using these “rules”

    The moose in the photo was different as this year we hunted from my remote cabin and have a 4 wheeler there. Longest pack was 6 feet. That will spoil you!

    Good hunting

    I agree with Cubpilot2 as well and follow the same rules as we hunt just the 2 of us and the farther the way from water the harder it is for me and the wife for sure , also make sure you make a good shot and he falls down right in his tracks , this year was even better for us we had called the nite before from the camp ass it was two windy to be on the water and the next morning at 630 am as we went to get in the boat Mr moose walked out as he heard us splashing in the water,hunt was then over in 30 sec of hunting . That's our tent camp in the back ground 60 yards away Click image for larger version.

    Just ole Wiley Coyote for me so far recently. This fellow was well beyond 200 yards when I got a good rest with the 6x47 XP100 and he stopped to look back.

    I haven't had near as much time to hunt or fish, but I have tried to make it count when I did. And have had some pretty good luck!

    This is the first decent moose I have ever taken, and likely the largest I will ever take. An incredibly lucky and rewarding trip.

    Weekend was good for some chilly time afield with the dogs again. Grouse hunting in the morning and a pheasant hunt in the afternoon. Felsig, the 6 1/2 month old pup with the blue collar, is finding, pointing, backing and retrieving birds both with his older siblings and by himself. All with only some good basic obedience training. Natural instinct is strong in the youngster! Sure is fun to watch him develop and learn from the older dogs.
