Huckleberry Cow moose hunt !
« on: September 18, 2021, 07:08:53 PM »
Leaving in two weeks for my son in law and wife’s cow moose hunt, drove around the area today, neat looking unit.  Have a camp spot in the southern portion of the unit, anyone have any honey holes for a couple cow moose??  :)

Changed the title a bit, got good info on places to go, thanks again guys!  Question, after trying to eat my 8 year old bull moose a couple years ago, and talking w a good friend about his big cow moose he killed. We were both not impressed w the meat, so my question, is there any ethical arguments about shooting a 1-2 year old cow?  I want the wife to shoot a young moose so we have a better chance at good meat.  Thoughts?

did you have any of it cubed? I have found on old mature bull elk it needs to be put through the cuber 2-3 times and you have some nice tender steaks!

I didn’t, but I should have. The burger was great though, I only add 5% fat so it’s brittle but taste good.

To answer your question….nothing wrong with shooting a young moose

With that said, I’ve shot two bull moose and both were tough.  One was a young bull and the other was a big boy.  They both taste delicious and preparation was the key to making them edible.   Cubed is a great way to go.  Canned is an even better way to go.   We made a lot of jerky too which is amazing.   Hamburger and stew meat is always a show stopper as well.  Not a fan of huge roast unless you brine and smoke….to make lunch meat like pastrami.   

Point being….Big moose taste great too.   If I had that tag, the size wouldn’t matter near as much as it’s location in respect to the road.  Above the road….it dies.

Well since I hunt huckleberry pretty much all the time.
I'm gonna assume that you will be out the first days of season.
If I see any in October ,I'll just PM ya or something.
I have a feeling you might not be to far away.
Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

If I every get drawn for a cow moose, would definitely being targeting a yearling cow.  As for the cuber, very worthwhile.
Made Moose Parmesan the other night and ran it through a small hand crank cuber and it was very tasty and pretty tender.
