Very well done! I'm particularly impressed with your answer to 'c' which is within about 30 kg.

For the most part deer are a lot more skittish than moose. Adult moose know that they are big bad bruisers that can mow down just about anything in their way (sometimes including bears). Wolves are about the only thing they really fear around here. Hunters (especially bowhunters) don,t make a big impact on their population in Manitoba.

Part of the reason that this moose came in closer to investigate was that I held my longbow upside down above my head (to look like antlers) as we tried to get closer while trying to stay close to what little cover we had.

Well I wondered if they would be perhaps curious a little, but in the wild I'm surprised they are that bold.. that could be a hell of a load to drag onto a SIB from any distance .. especially over wetlands .. do you sled it somehow ?

Please excuse Dirk's remarks.

I remember being in a laundrette in Ontario (we were cycling coast to coast back in the mid 90's.) The magazines, all of which were well-thumbed revolved around cross-bow hunting and trucks. In Canada a Dodge Ram or Ford F350 is referred to as a truck! Over here it has to be an 18-wheeler!

Never understood the love affair with killing game, certainly animals such as black bear. However it's a huge country your population of 33 million is dwarfed by the States.

I know there's a huge degree of skill in dressing a moose, especially when you consider the terrain, likelihood of blackfly and deer flies - which I know can drive you stir-crazy. There's also the possibility of unwelcome attention from bears in the vicinity.

You really don't need to apologise on my behalf. If "hunters" need to sneak up on a defenceless animal and shoot it with a longbow, crossbow, shotgun or whatever, just to increase the size of their dicks then it's fine by me, I just prefer to get my meat out of a tin,or a butchers slab, where I'd like to think no pleasure has been derived from the killing of said animal.

Fair sentiment, but unless he's posessed with more than the average amount of tolerance, I can't imagine why he would. Sadly, there's a bit of that on the forum. I saw someone (you know who you are) who should know better, mocking another member's (lack of) typing skills over the last couple of days, so no surprises on the Moose Hunt front. Remember that most of these wusses would struggle to snag an Angus burger from the Organic Counter at Sainburys and absolutely require another man to shoot the cow for them. So, in summary, thanks for a post with a difference!

While I'm sure you feel much happier under these circumstances, I'm not sure that the animal in question experiences much of a difference.
