PostSubject: My Hunt for Moose   Tue Dec 03, 2013 4:03 am

I was out for calf moose almost everyday of the hunt. During the week's hunt, I saw 1 single cow twice, two cows together on three different days and two different bulls, why did I see all those Moose? because I did not have a tag for them thats why, oh and there are a lot of Moose where I live. On the last day at last light, I had a cow and calf come out at 134 yrds [range finder] on the edge of a large swamp with a ton of dead falls,deep water and sink holes. I was useing my remington slug gun [scoped] I had only a small window to take the shot, as they were moveingalong pretty fast, so I took the shot, waited as long as I could then went to the spot the calf was and could see no blood or hair [at first] I was shaking with the after shakes, so I had to calm down a bit then I looked some more [now pitch dark looking with a flashlite] I finaly saw some hair [dark hair so I was pumped] then a few spots of blood I keep walking [ wearing work boots] straight into the swamp, a foot of water and mud now making it slow going. I can't see any more blood so I am just going by a feeling of were it is, all of a sudden snort, splash, splash, I shine the lite on the sound, the cow is comming towards me, I yell and holler she then turns and heads off. After I stop shaking the second time, I look some more and now there is a lot of blood in the water and on downed trees and some swamp grass, I am now about 400 yards into the swamp in 2 feet of water and about a foot of mud soaked, cold looking for the calf, can't see it anywere, thinking what the hell were is it, then I go around a dead fall and there it is. So now I have it to do, took me two hours to get it out of the swamp because of how thick and nasty it was. I cleaned it then went for the bike, got it to the shop and hung it up for 5 days then I butchered it and packaged it by myself as my boys are away and the wife has to work. Now I need a White tail, going to try up to the last day if nessasary.

Congrats on the calf. It is always hard work when they fall in a place you can't drive your bike to and in a wet swamp is the worst.
