New York State now has a manual for how to deal with moose. I'm taking this as a positive sign that moose are so numerous that the DEC has to plan to deal with them. Multiply you meese! Lets get a NY moose hunting season soon!
I hear that the North American Moose Foundation is back as a functional unit. I received an email from Rob Anderson, the new President the North American Moose foundation.
He said that there has been a "regrouping" of sorts among the foundation’s officers and that some have made an attempt to split off into a separate organization. But that the foundation is returning to full activity.
“We are a small organization who is trying very hard grow and succeed. Over the past several years we've had booths at the Wild Sheep show in Reno, MDF's convention in Salt Lake, the Alaska expo in Anchorage, SCI in Reno and Dallas and the RMEF's Elk Camp. 3/5 of the moose board on the WGBGLC are representatives of the NAMF. Recently I have started up a brand new website and Face-book page that you should check out.”
I plan to do so and will keep all of you on biggamehunt.net posted as I learn more.
Anyone who shoots a sabot bullet has had the problem with loading the next round with a dirty barrel we have all struggled with it.
Between muzzleloader shots I have done some research and testing on my own to find out what works for me for the next shot. I have been using a product called bore butter and when the muzzleloader is just sitting around I leave it caked in the barrel for protection. Have also found that if I lube my sabots with bore butter they really slide nicely down the barrel....
