I would like to take advantage of the broad spectrum of members to get your opinion on the follwing;
Which is better for moose hunting - hunting from a tree stand or "dogging" them?
I hope this will start a discussion on how we each do it and maybe give some of our fellow hunters some new ideas.
Since I am starting this discussion, I will give my opinion as well.
I hunt moose in Northern Ontario. The rifle season opens during the last part of the rut, but we still have alot of success calling moose in and hunting from treestands. Our treestand are in locations we know the moose will travel. We are in them prior to sun up and call until 10 am, then go back to camp for breakfast. We are back in the stands by 3 pm and hunt until sun down.
Some of us use cover sents and moose urine, as well as calling. We park our ATV's about 1 km from our respective stand and walk in.
We may dog through the bush during the day, but in my 8 years hunting we have never filled a tag this way.
Now let's hear how other people do it...all posting welcome.
