I agree. It would suck to try to sneek in on a bull with a bow just have someone shoot close by and spook the whole herd. I haven't looked at the ML regulations. Are ML hunters aloud to hunt all the same units as archers?
Yes archery and ML hunters hunt the same units during the season. I agree it would be nice if they changed the dates like Still Hunter said but until they do archery hunters need to deal with ML hunters during the 9 day ML season.
I do like ML hunting. Haven't done it for years. My question is do you prefer traditional style gun or the new styles with scopes and all the new high tech. You can definitely shoot much further with more accuracy with the new styles compared to 20 years ago. Personally to me it takes more of the challenge away. That being said I prefer a compound over a recurve.
Moose calling can get confusing to some, but cow calling is your main tool when moose hunting. If you go out and buy moose calls I would say you're wasting your money unless it is the birch bark cone. I find most store bought moose calls sounding worse than puffing a grunt your hands to make the call. You can roll up a piece of birch bark in a cone shape to use as a call and spend your money on a video that teaches you the basics of a cow call. A milk jug or a coffee can with a hole and a rope...
