I have taken some heat from blog passers by who have a problem with killing animals. I shall defer any protracted arguments about the issue. We can agree to disagree.
However, in deference to those anti-hunting types....I offer this photo of moose hunting.
I myself have never had the desire to hunt moose.I have had the chance. I have seen many in the days back when I canoe camped in Algonquin Provincial park and kicked around the woods in Maine. I saw several recently in Steamboat, Colorado.They always seemed such stately and docile creatures...staring at you while munching a big batch of duckweed or just walking by in the woods like they could not give a damn about your presence in their patch of forest.
More importantly, I hear they are not the best eating...and I strive to only hunt what I will eat(except snow geese...but that is another story altogether.)
So if your are hiking around Maine this season, be wary, some crew of Moose may be looking to lash your behind to the top of the truck.
