    Default NIce Bull, donated to a charity..

    Well, Member GreyBeard and I, picked up a big one last night.. this guy was hit on a particularly dark road, and was found a few hours laster by troopers in a private yard/garden.

    I found i am actually enjoying my Volunteer time with the AMF, and so far everyone i have delivered to has been great!





    And you just never know, when your going to meet Nat Geo filming the AK state troopers.





    Needing more Northpole Based Volunteers, Pay sucks, hours suck, you get called out of bed at 30 below, BUT!!!!!! YOU GET TO PRY FROZEN MOOSE off the road... but IT SURE IS FUN!

    I appreciate the work you guys are putting in this winter. Our church is on the charity list and last winter (with no AMF rollback) we got the call for one that died in a flower bed. Had to haul all the guts out in bags...

    They can auction them at the fur rondy events in February in Anchorage. However, they can also just keep them if there is funding for some taxidermy work or some volunteer time.

    The way people seem to "guess" around here, I would expect to be hearing guesses in the low 70's..... After all, we all under estimate these things.

    The roadkill list is and outstanding program and provides a lot of great table fair to multible familes but I've always thought that if a moose dies on your property then it's up to you, the land owner, to dispose of it. Did the land owner donate this or did the Troopers just call you guys? Did the home owner want the rack sence it stays with the moose or was it not even offered?

    Just courious because I've read several instances were a moose died in someones yard from being hit and they are told that it now belongs to them and they have to dispose of it. This moose was hit on the road but it did not die until hrs later. No different than one being gut shot and running off to only later die in someones back yard and the troopers saying sorry we can't help and you must dispose of it. Again, not knocking the program in any way, just trying to get clairification on when the troopers/F&G are responsible, or step in, for disposal v/s the land owner.

    Great job on the recovery and keep up the good work. 48" is my guess.

    I don't know all the nuances of the rules here.. but perhaps the difference is, the trooper had to dispatch it. the home owner seemed to think the person that hit it. got it, until i used the analogy of hunting with the old chevy... then he understood. this bull was wounded and the troopers put it down, and called out the salvage..

    and tclarifyfy, we did request homeownepermissionon PRIOR to moving a single planter, fire pit, or stone, and i personally placed each object in the same spot it was, removed from, under thwatchfulugrandmotherlyry eye of the home owner, all the while being told NOT to bother ... ( we all know what that means from our elders eh? )

    Thanks to Vince, Graybeard, and the AMF. You guys make my job so much easier and quicker. When the charities themselves had to come out for the animal it could sometimes take several hours before they even showed up and then they weren't always well versed in how to handle the animal.

    The moose, or any road kill animal, belongs to the state, regardless of where it's hit or dies. Unfortunately, I've seen times where the animal has been dead for several days and is rotting, and then the state doesn't want it anymore, leaving it to the property owner to take care of it. It's not right, in my mind, but that's the way it goes sometimes.

    That really kills me. The state wants to claim it while it is still fresh but once it's not, it is up to the property owner to dispose of it. They want their cake and want to eat it too, go figure??? Typical selfish attitude.
    If a dipnetter dips a fish and there is no one around to see/hear it, Did he really dip?
