That's too bad. I feel sorry for the animal and sorry for those hunters who bought a moose tag and didn't get a chance to fill it who would be grateful for this animal. I feel the same way when I see deer dead on the shoulder of the road. It is sad for them, but I feel the loss on a personal level because that venison will not be utilized by me or anyone I know. Yes I know it has its place in the ecosystem for scavengers such as the coyotes and crows, but it still seems like a waste to me. And that is just multiplied when it comes to something like a moose whose tags are so hard to draw!
There are times when the deer are simply not moving and you're forced to make something happen. Maybe you're up against a full moon or hot weather. This is when a silent drive to force deer to move should be considered.
By silent drive, you're not yelling and making a commotion to scare the deer. When deer are panicked, they're liable to bust out of the cover on a dead run, and any shot you get will be tough to make.
A silent drive is different. It means playing the wind to carry the driver's...
