    Talking My old friend Teddy comes calling

    3-4 years ago Teddy was a first year calf. I let him hang around all winter, eating the jack o lanterns and garden refuse.

    Now he comes to his name when he is passing by. He has a very soft nose, but watch those horns when he turns his head. Major head bang!

    There are currently 3 adult moose that stop by on a regular basis. Teddy, Mom (and little Kobuck) and Momma. all have a survival story and almost always come to their name.

    Lil Kobuck came to check the garden this fall. I need to find a newer picture, he is sprouting horns. Way late in the year, but they are warm and fuzzy looking.

    Maybe he will let you measure his width, then we could all practice guessing on a live moose.

    Here is a good shot for guessing. The next time he stops by I'll try to measure him.

    Wow......as tame as he is, I'm surprised he's survived....(meaning poachers)

    Who named him "Teddy"...???

    He is named after Teddy's Tasty Meats. It was a motivational expression.

    I don't think he is that tame. At least the neighbors can't get close to him. There is no doubt he would have died the first winter he showed up. He laid on the ground for 4 days and never got up. Even after a heavy snow he just layed there. I spent a LOT of time out talking to him.
    He thinks I am his pappa. }:>

    Default A word of warning

    Just a warning to any young bulls that are looking for a hand out.

    Depending on the state of my freezer, this could be you.

    Ten years ago we had a large whitetail buck named "Stumpy" that had lost the radius/ulna from a gunshot wound. Walking he used all four legs but running used three. Dinner time, Stumpy and others fed on corn, hay and pumpkin. Two winters of observations were sadly brought to an end when an unknown hunter gut shot him and did not recover Stumpy. I found his body after a morning hunt (for deer) but none of our party would have taken that shot ashe was off limits. I did harvest the meat and put it to good use. Humans are funny creatures...
