Has anyone ever heard of the term Treeknockers? Does anyone know what a tree knocker is and why and when moose do this?

The first time I called in a

The first time I called in a bull I thought I'd awakened Godzilla!  Bang, Bang, thrash, crash, grunt, grunt, grunt, Repeat!  I had put some cow scent near a wallow in the evening, and then returned at dawn the next morning to call.  

Get a big bull fired up and you'll be amazed at their strength! ............until they're close to being in range or seen, then you could hear a pin drop, but not them as they try to wind you.  

I'm not sure if it's to prove their size and prowess, or suitability as a mate, or to establish dominace of the cow calling in case there are rivals around?  I'm not sure, but boy howdy, it'll get your attention!

Yes it will get your

Yes it will get your attention! It's very exciting to watch this huge animal come to your calls, head swaying back and forth, drool pouring from its nose while he's grunting. He demands your attention!
