    Default 2022 Big Game

    Looks like draw results should start posting today. I have not received any emails yet.

    Good luck to all in the draw and in the field!

    Well, I didn't draw a cow moose license. Not that I expected it. It was my first year eligible after accumulating the required 3 preference points to draw. Now I have 4 points for next year.

    A cow and it's yearling calf have been around the property for a few weeks. The cow was bulging, soon to drop a new calf or two if she hasn't already. Here's the yearling bull taking a snowy stroll in the river by the house. Yes, it's been snowing off and on today.....

    Nice pictures!

    I got my rejection email for moose as well. But I am trying for a bull tag, so likely will take much longer than your cow tag.

    Yea, took 19 years to get my bull tag. Hope you do better. A year earlier an old friend drew his bull tag at 32 years. Fortunately, there are more moose in Colorado now.

    We're still eating the last of the 2018 moose, the tougher "to grind" and crock pot fare. We've made some great Osco Busco meat from lower leg and shank of deer and pronghorn. Tender for tacos, etc. I'll never again grind it up for sausage.

    I'd really like to connect with an elk or two this year. Past due.

    For those who hunt Wyoming, today is the deadline for deer and antelope.

    I've been reminding myself everyday to not forget and almost forgot.
    There's a fine line between cuddling and holding someone down so they can't get away.

    I drew a season choice bull moose tag for GMU 49 / 500. I should have started scouting already, but I didn't figure on drawing a moose tag for another 10 years.

    Wish me luck, and feel free to send me any tips.

    That?s the type of license I been trying to get for moose. I like the idea of hunting the different seasons.

    My advice for moose - get an elk tag. Always run into them when elk hunting

    Good idea. If my RFW draw doesn't come through I'll check the elk otc dates for overlap.

    Excellent, congrats! How many years of applying?


    First suggestion, pick up a Thin Clear Flexible Cutting Board Mat 12 x 15 inch, like this to use as a megaphone to call bulls:

    https://www.amazon.com/Pack-Clear-Fl...995960263&th=1

    It's super light and can be quickly be rolled into a cone for extended calling distance. Go on YouTube to learn and practice the bull and cow calls. I can do it by voice alone but sometimes you want to do longer exploratory calls with the megaphone. On my hunt, I encountered 19 moose and called in 7 bulls.

    Good luck!

    This is my first eligible year. I had 3 points.
