    Moose Rut

    Hello All,

    It looks like the moose rut might be firing up soon here. I was in region 7-26 for the last few days looking for an immature. I was up early so in the late afternoon I decided to drive in a cut block and close my eyes for an hour but before I did I let a couple cow calls out. I woke up at around 4:30 PM from my nap, made a quick Mountain House and stepped outside to stretch my legs. As I did I let out another cow call and out of the bush around 600 yards away I seen a moose walking toward me. Put the glass on him and it was a small bull. As it got closer counted 5 points on each side. Small but not small enough. He eventually got to within 90 yards periodically looking up at me but focused on sniffing the ground for that elusive cow . And man was he slobbering. Anyhow, good luck out there, moose are moving!

    Happy hunting.

    I’m heading out in exactly 7 days and that post probably gave me a 7 day hard on.

    Start calling now!!

    Lots of bulls are interested yet most guys wait until the rut is well under way, when the bigger bulls are already hooked up with their ladies and it's tough to pull them away.

    Had a bull going on the camera last Saturday, the cow had no interest but he sure was!!

    Cheers
