2019 moose was 9 years old
« on: April 21, 2020, 07:33:45 PM »
Was suprising to find out that my 2019 49 degree north moose was 9 years old. Now I know why meat is tough ;)
It sure make good burger though as flavor is great. Curious how old other tag holders moose were. You can find out with wild ID here

Do you have a pic of him? Interesting to see a pic knowing the age!

I was surprised too when I found out mine was 9 years old. I was thinking 3 or 4.

Haven’t got results of age back yet, but I’m not impressed with the meat. But the burger is pretty good!

Mine was 8, and meat is tender and fantastic. We had a younger one about 10 years ago that was really tough. No idea what the difference might be, but it is night and day.

Hang time??

Never had any "tuff" moose!  But then all my moose meat came from Canadians species.

Just like my beef, two weeks minimum,  yum yum!!
The only good tree, is a stump!

Not really aged except a few days at the butcher. But I did gut it and half skin to cool, then it was left on the mountain in cold temps for about 24 hours before it was cut up. So it came back out of rigamortis before being cut. I haven’t really experimented with that, but have heard it can help.

age of moose seems to have no bearing on tenderness of steaks..it seems to be a crap shoot when it comes to moose meat. I have had older bulls that were tender and young bulls that were like rubber

My 2018 bull was early season and rutting hard. Meat was great. But we did hang it for 2 weeks. WDFW said he was 7.
