This is the most hilarious post I have ever read on Hunt-Wa since I joined in 2008.  I believe this thread will overtake the great D-Man Bobcat post, circa 2010.  This may be my new signature line from now on.  Still debating. :chuckle:
The D-Man Bobcat post still rules as the most hilarious!
Can u link that.. i have never read it

Went up morel hunting and we were all wondering what the heck left the poop.....looked 3-4 times the size of elk poop and was oval shaped twas in the blue here outside of Dayton Washington. Possibly moose? There was enough where it's more than 1 it's a party of at least 3! Because the poop was all over the place. Oh and yes we scored heavily on the morels :tup:

Uh...that might of been me...


...get that way after too much pizza.













Seriously, I have nothing to add here. I just look at "unread posts" and look for Billdo's replies. Something good normally follows  :chuckle:

And all this time I've been looking for antlers to see if there's bulls and I should be looking up piles of turds. How would you tell the bull is a big bull would it be by the size of the pile or the size of the turd in the pile. Good luck with your argument.
If it aint broke, dont fix it.

I have a friend that swears bull elk poop comes out in the rope-like clumps, while cow elk poop is always individual pellets. Started to try to convince him that it might have more to do with what they eat, but I gave up.

I am totally joking.  I hope this is true.  I will have learned something valuable for when I draw my Moose permit in 72 years. :chuckle:

maybe in 72 years it will have wolf fur in it.   Of course it will have evolved into squares by then.

I'm pretty sure we won't have moose in 72 years Bone.
If we do there will be 2 left and that's when I will draw the tag.
Good thing about it is I can go find the crap and determine if it is bullcrap or cowcrap.

I feel really stupid.   All these years instead of looking at its shape I have been doing it by taste.    :bash:

Don't feel stupid that is yet another secret in the moose game. Taste is how you tell how old a moose is, its basically it's a form of carbon dating.

The saltier it is, the bigger the antlers.   That's where they came up with the saying. "Old Salt"

A couple of you are close but, I'm really disappointed so many hunters know so little about accurately determining the sex of a moose via it's droppings.

I'll let you in on the secret so you don't keep embarrassing yourselves around campfires and coffee tables.

If it tastes like chocolate it's a bull.  If it tastes like caramel, it's a cow. 

I thought everybody knew that? :dunno:
