This weekend I was up to my cabin in the Noatak National Park and it was as cold as I want it to be, a nasty –38 and you could feel it the entire cay down to your butt! Ok here is my question. I have shot a few moose and seen a bunch but what is the trigger that causes some moose to drop their horns in November and some keep them into the New Year? I was skiing with my kids Sunday and we came across an area where several moose had bedded down for the night. As we skied through I found 2 spruce trees about 12 feet tall that had been scraped bare by a bull trying to work his rack off of his head. Why so late for this guy when I have seen 4 or 5 this winter that have dropped theirs?
