psssst don't mention 'hunting' - some of the locals go completely balistic (i.e. send death wishes) at the thought that we can eat wild meat while they don't have those same opportunities.

The Crazy Canadian (my wife) went moose hunting the other weekend but regrettably with no luck. We're hopeful that her uncles will have more success soon so we can have our quarter in the freezer!

Some of us adapt to our surroundings............

From what I hear of 'the Rock', you just need to go for a drive on the highway - you'll get your moose! (the moose scene in the movie "The Shipping News" was dark comedy at its finest).

We drove around the Avalon for two weeks but had to go to Salmonier Nature Park to see a moose!

Gotta get a moose 'by!

Until this year I had never seen a moose in the wild so to speak. In fact the buggers seemed to take a delight in avoiding me. I'd drive on roads where everyone would warn me to 'you'll definately need to be careful of the moose' and not see hide nor hair of one. Then, one evening on the deck of a friends new place on a housing estate (thats subdivision to Canadians) up near the airport in St. John's, I glanced up and THERE WAS THE BIGGEST BLOODY MOOSE you've ever seen staring placidly back at me. By the time I could open my mouth to say 'Mo.........' he'd ambled back off into the woods. Later in the summer we actually came across one by the side of the Trans Canada Highway. Picture attached. (You'll see why hitting one at speed in a car is usually fatal.)

Anyway, Moose sightings in urban St. John's are fairly frequent. Local radio will frequently broadcast moose warnings as in 'A moose was spotted by the Foxtrap access road 10 minutes ago.' However I understand that it's not the done thing to shoot one by the road, one must hike several kms through the wood first. And then carry the bloody thing out in chunks. Thats why the other half went moose hunting and I stayed home!

Once you haul frame pack with a moose quarter on your back for a mile and a half - you'll be fully Canadianized

Boning the meat on site will save much grief in the process of hauling the meat out (it won't eliminate the grief - just save some)

I've never been able to argue with the NRA and the gun lobby since seeing Deborah Shelton (amongst others) in some of their publicity stuff. WOW, Codders even you would want her handling your guns.
