Already seeing plenty of "sub-legal bull moose" showing up on the Trooper reports. So...here's a few things to keep in mind to stay legal.
1) DO NOT shoot a bull moose in a 50"/3 or 4 brow tine area if you have any questions at all as to if it is legal. Your best bet on "iffy" bulls is to count the brow tines, and if there aren't enough, let it go. I know it can be hard, but paying a stiff fine and turning in antlers and meat is harder. In spike-fork areas, ensure you know what a spike-fork is before shooting.
2) PUNCH YOUR HARVEST TICKET immediately after taking your moose, and install locking tag if you are a non-resident. (This assumes you always carry your hunting license and tag of course <grin>)
3) Don't forget to leave "evidence of sex" on one of the rear quarters of meat! Even if you don't leave meat on the bone, it is a simple matter to leave a part of the penis naturally attached to the meat on one quarter. You don't need the whole schlong either.
4) Don't shoot on or from or across a roadway.
5) Don't shoot from an atv or vehicle
6) Don't take antlers out UNTIL THE LAST LOAD. Meat must come out first!
7) TAKE ALL EDIBLE MEAT! Also, don't shoot a moose if you feel you can't salvage all the meat and properly take care of it in your hunt time-frame. Wanton waste is one of the more serious game violations. Ensure you know the regs for the area you are hunting. Some areas require meat to be left on the bone on the shoulders, hams, and ribs. Troopers are really cracking down on wanton waste...please be sure to take all edible meat as required by law and to arrange meat pick-ups in the field if needed.
Remember to practice good firearms safety at all times, and to take adequate measures to ensure your own safety, like letting family at home know where you are and when to expect you back. Good luck to everyone,
