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.
When placing a trail camera don't just look for a well used trail. What you want to do is look for a freshly used trail off by itself that goes from a north facing ridge, thick forest, brushy knob or some other similar bedding area to a food source. Don't forget water sources. Especially in the summer months the deer need water so look for a good trail going down too a creek surrounded by thick cover and place the camera 100 yards up from the water source.
Scent control is very important...
