EatWild 38 - Counting to 10 - A moose hunting story

September 26, 2020

I set out on an elk hunting trip with good pals Will, Ben, Tome and Tom.  Our plan was to float down the river, camp on the riverbank, and hunt elk for the week. Elk hunting was pretty slow and I was getting discouraged when things took a big turn.  I was set up calling for Elk, I heard a crunch, and an unexpected critter showed up. 

In some parts of BC, we have an open moose season, but you can only harvest immature bulls that have 2 points or less, or mature bulls that have 3 points on their brow palm or a total of 10 points on one antler. Confusing? Absolutely! Then try and count those points while a moose popping in and out of view in the willows and thick timber.  In this episode, I talk about counting points in the field and building the confidence to pull the trigger.
