Hunted last three days, saw one bull and one cow. Bull was sublegal and came in "gloinking" at me when I cow called. I stumbled on his rutting pits later and he wouldn't leave. I moved to another area with lots of fresh pits and some scrapes. The tracks are bigger. I didn't call there yet. When I go back should I try a cow call from a short distance or try scraping/thrashing? This place had lots of pits last year also, but I thought it was bear sign, I'm learning.
In some of the alder thickets there are pits over a foot deep, but old. Could moose also dig to lay in a cool spot?
Cow call or scrape grunt by the pits??
