  • Saw a legal bull last night

    Driving home just outa wasilla I saw a fork bull moose eating along the edge of the road. Still had both antlers. I think this is the latest I've ever seen a bull with both antlers!

            I guess no one told him that we just went through a winter. Hell, I sure wouldn't have known had I not had a calendar. Strange indeed. I wonder how common it is for members of the deer family not to drop their antlers (not including the south Kodiak Island bucks)?

                I bet he's missing his balls.......His sad song sings; "Cut off in my prime....."

                When the make a Bull into a Steer Reindeer, the same happens, they are in Velvet untill it wears off over the winter. Cutting their nuts makes 'em lazy and uninterested in burning all that fat off their fall time butts, and they remain fat and healthy most all year round, antlers until the new ones come along soon.....

                Its big nut chomping world out there to Moose, their dangling sackload is as good a target for biting Wolves as his hock tendons or throat.

                    Several years ago I posted a picture of a small Bull seen April 1st. My camera date said 01/04/ cant remember the year. You could tell winter was over with no snow and warm out. I got chided for posting an April Fools joke but it was the real thing.

                        Drive by Fort Greely flightline during September they are everywhere. They know that they are off limits inside the gate.

                          How could you have possibly seen a legal bull when the season isn't open?

                            I'm near you BRWNBR, we had a single antlered bull in our backyard a couple weeks ago. Relatively easy winter for moose around here with little snow. I think the less stressed, and smaller antlered, they are the longer they'll keep their antlers- although the middle of April is really late!

                              There may be some truth to that.......

                              Years ago as a kid I was hunting mule deer in Utah. The old boy in our group killed a monster. It was a symmetrical 4x4 and at 42" wide took 3rd place at the Vegas big buck contest. That buck was about 350 pounds on the hoof. When we went to skin him we found that he only had one nut. A few folks said that was why he got so big. Who knows if he ever shed his horns or not, but there just might be some correlation between testicles and antlers...???

                              Although horn growth is mostly about testosterone, how healthy a bull stays after the rut seems to have something to do with it.....

                              Found this article interesting about deer and shedding. I would think the same applies to moose? http://www.outdoorlife.com/blogs/big...-their-antlers
                              Sheep hunting...... the pain goes away, but the stupidity remains...!!!
