Me and a friend just wrapped up a northern lynn canal moose hunt. After getting to the site we rowed over to the treestand and after sitting there for 20 min at about 12 noon A 42 incher just walked up behind us and we dropped him. We hadnt even unloaded the camp out of the skiff yet. We just canoed over to the treestand right away to take a look. Had him hung by dark. My quiestion is I was using the same treestand about 50 yards from the gutpile for the next couple days after. There was no bear activity but will beeing so close to the carcass keep other moose away? There was quite a bit of noise from the birds though.
Ive shot deer and had others walk right by the gutpile within an hour of the kill.
