Moose Stories

Letters / Fairbanks Daily News-Miner / October 17, 2007


To the editor:

I know I'm getting old, but how much are moose hunting stories going to change?

As a kid I used to hear the stories of finding five cows in a slough, and not one bull, dang! Or the one about the huge bull on the bluff, and after being shot rolled down into the pick-up, wow!

Today in line, however, I heard a kid from the Lower 48 say how hard it was to shoot a cow, mostly because he had to pack the gut-sack out too. The man next to him asked why, and he said, that he didn't want to leave it in the guy's yard.

I agree with Richard Coleman's letter about shooting cows in 20A management area. I'm no expert but it doesn't seem logical to shoot potentially pregnant cows, or cows with calves hiding in the woods. The weather is changing, the stories are changing, and maybe we'll all benefit from an explosion in the moose population, or maybe we'll just be fighting with hunters from Anchorage over the few that are left.
