Bleed before or after shedding? Help!
« on: March 03, 2020, 01:21:55 PM »
I found moose tracks and blood drips so I started following them backwards and found a bed with a bunch of blood where the head laid and then drops on the trail leading to it so I kept following but now have found an area with tracks everywhere and no blood drips for about 100-200 yards down the trail. Did I pass the sheds already, was the blood leading up to the sheds, Iím so lost right now. Haha I thought for sure just before that bed Iíd find the sheds. Iím back tracking now and somehow have service on this mountain.
May my presence go unnoticed, may my shot be true, may the blood trail be short.

Amen

Decent chance its a cut on leg leaving the blood. But could be from a pedicle too! I would lean towards already shed at the point of the blood...

Yeah id bet bloody leg too.  And the odds of a moose packing into march are incredibly slim from what ive seen.  Ive seen them drop as early as november.  Heres a lopsided bull from dec 14th this last season.

Yeah I tracked it back and forth quite a few times and itís gotta be a neck/leg cut. I say neck because I found some blood wiped on a limb pretty high. Found a great moose/deer spot though tracking it up and over the mountain. Gonna go back in and hang a trail camera.
May my presence go unnoticed, may my shot be true, may the blood trail be short.
