After reading some other posts by forum members I decided to throw this out there just for conversation sake. I'm done hunting for the year because I have to leave town tomorrow for a few days.
I've been hunting the FMA since high school....and no, I'm not in college now I've killed 7 moose in the FMA, some years I hunted other species around the state and didn't hunt much around town. That being said, I grew up here and have hunted around town a lot and I know where to look for moose.
I have seen more cows with and without calves this year than I have in a while. I think the most my wife and I saw in one morning was 12 or 13, can't remember exactly. But I have only seen one bull twice, once opening day and few days again after that. I know that they gave out more cow permits this year...in fact with the new regs you could shoot cows with and without calves or calves with cows.
Does anyone actually know the bull/cow ratio in the FMA now? Is it that far out of wack that they are allowing cows to be shot with calves on an anterless tag?
