    Default Moose behavior around gut pile question

    I know, sit on a gut pile and wait for a bear, right?

    I know of a gut pile in an area with little/no bear activity, what are the chances moose will return to the area? How long would you wait?

    Thanks.

    Mateing Moose Move..........

    You most likely wont have Moose being attracted to the Guts of a Comrad/Familia laying about, but they would show up as "The replacement Moose" if the habitat is good.
    If you can't Kill it with a 30-06, you should Hide.

    Over the years, there have been times as many as 7 moose have been taken within yards of their fellow gut piles. I believe animals get used to the site and smell of death in the woods. If moose frequent a feeding area, they will return as soon as it quites down again.

    I think you would have better luck taking the hides and wetting them down then moving them a little ways away from the pile and hang them up and place them in a area where you could watch both sites.

    Once the bears move in on a gut pile they pretty much mark them and not to many moose will venture that close to them afterwards.

    I've had wet hides bring them in before when they were in rut.

    You on to something there, for sure.


    I once had a Love struck Muskox attack, smash and stomp a Bull ox hide I had flesh side down on my table outside the house once.

    Sorry about your hide Stranger, lol, dang critters.

    We could go futher with this, throw the hides over a log, find a set of old racks stick them on top of the hides next to some bushs and rig up a pulley system to move the horns, lol.

    Believe it or not somebody reading this will try it, lol.

    WARNING THIS COULD GET YOU KILLED,
