Moose Hunting Season is On Now!Moose season is upon us. Or at least for a lot of us. Many of our readers, including myself depend on having a freezer full of organic meat to consume over the coming year.
We share our bounty with our extended family and none of it ever goes to waste.
Someone asked me just yesterday what was my favorite moose recipe. It didn't take me long to answer moose roast. And on that note we are cooking one for dinner tomorrow.
What recipe is your favorite? Don't forget to share your best ones and please do include a picture.
We are exited to be getting ready to go on our annual moose hunt. My Dad who is 90 years old is coming along to rough it while we sleep in a wall tent.
He'll be keeping that wood-stove full of wood, no doubt we'll have to double our efforts to keep a good supply on hand for him.
Fibromas TumorsSometimes moose are observed with large growths on their bodies and can be very ugly to look at. In most cases these growths are benign fibromas tumors and do the animal no harm.
Also for the hunter who shoots (or chooses not to because of) an animal with these growths, not to worry.
We have just published an article about this phenomenon... Fibromas Tumors
Moose Hunting Quiz #15Have you ever thought of a moose hunting question and didn't have the answer to it?
Carl submitted a very interesting question. Do you have any comments yourself? Moose Quiz #15 Would you like to see us develop a Moose Hunting Exam? Please let us know.
Riding a swimming moose videoHave you seen this video? It happened in BC this summer.
(I have not included the link because I don't want the publisher to benefit from it. You can search it on YouTube if you really must see it.)
I want you to know this is not cool! Disturbing/harassing wildlife while swimming is an offense and is punishable. The wildlife conservation officers in BC are looking for the culprits who did this.

One of the reasons I bring this topic up is that on a recent camping trip some fellows from England were camping beside us and were quite excited to be heading to Bowron Lakes to do a seven night canoe trip around the chain.
The younger of the two exclaimed he was looking forward to riding a moose. He'd seen it on YouTube!
I was quick to point out that he should NOT be doing any such thing and why he shouldn't.
