Helping moose NOW- what you can do.
It seems like all the discussions about predator control, habitat management, shoot cows, don't shoot cows, spike/50, all come down to one thing: we as hunters would like more moose available for us to shoot! But how do we individually do that?
There are 4 snowcats sitting unused in Willow right now, with a man ready to volunteer his time running one, but he needs diesel. He puts down trails to good browse to draw moose away from the easy running on railroad tracks and highways. He's been doing this several years, with very good results. But he needs your help!
This is not Moose Federation, though he's actively worked with them. The amount I heard that is needed is $1,000, but every gallon helps- so $4.25 gets a couple miles of trail. PM me for more information- I'll let you know who it is.
Bottom line- every moose saved from the roads and railroads is one thats there to breed or be bred, and possibly end up in your freezer come hunting season.
I was just asked to help last night, so any ideas are appreciated. Donations of cash help immediately, but silent auction donations can also be useful; I don't have access to a gaming permit, so if anyone else on this forum does, that would be great for setting up a donation auction.
