2011 Moose Story

Postby fireman on Mon Jul 30, 2012 10:10 am

Can't believe I dropped the ball on getting this story posted :?

This was my fourth year hunting with Kashabowie Outposts and I was hoping that Mother Nature would finally cooperate for once. In 2008, while bow hunting, our 12 day hunt ended up being a 7 day hunt...with five days of sitting in camp watching the downpour. I think we ended up with 15 inches of rain during our stay. My hunting partner Bill and I had a lot of fun...but the moose (and Mother Nature) did not play nice with us.

Our return trip in 2009 was more of the same bad luck when it comes to weather. Perfect moose hunting weather during the rut is cool and calm. 2009 was unseasonably warm...and when the temp's finally dropped, the wind picked up. Moose are not going to spend much time moving during the day when it is hot....and with high winds, they can not year your calls. 2009 ended up being one of the worst archery seasons that area has ever experienced.

Due to scheduling issues, we were forced to switch things up in 2010. We left the bows at home and headed up for the rifle season. One more kicker for this year....there was only one bull tag available for us....along with a cow tag. Since you can party hunt in Ontario...and given the fact that we were filming these hunt for the show....we would continue to alternate days until one of us was able to finally put a tag on a critter.

Based on the past two years of bad luck with weather...along with this bad luck that seems to follow me everywhere I go....I wasn't surprised to find out that we missed out on one of the best archery seasons EVER that year. :lol: Ontario moose are starting to drive me MAD MAD MAD at this point.

Well....on the third day of our hunt (a hunt with perfect weather conditions) Bill tipped over a beautiful 54" bull. That ended my chance for a bull that year...but getting it all on film was AWESOME!!!!

This brings us to 2011.....given the option this year, we decided to give the rifle hunt a go again for two reasons....1) the rut carries over into rifle season 2) it would help our chances of avoiding the hot weather.

Well, we ended up missing another great archery year...but I was able to get my bull anyway. The first morning started out great....perfect weather and a great forecast for the next several days. The action started quickly on the first day when we had an encounter while heading across a lake in the canoe. It was right after legal shooting time....but still way too dark to film. As we paddled by...we realized it was a cow getting a drink on the shore.

That was pretty much it for the day....unless you count the encounter with two guys that paddle by us in a canoe even though they knew we were there. They were hunting...but their loud conversation was definitely gonna' reduce their chances ;) The evening hunt was a bit of a bust because the wind really kicked up that day.

For the next several days, we ended up only getting out 2 more times out of a possible 7 sits. That great forecast went to shitsa in a hurry (a VERY common thing up there) :evil: By the end of day five, I was ready to hunt even if it was a frickin' hurricane outside. When we left camp that afternoon, it was still raining but I did not care. We packed a ground blind with us and headed for my favorite spot.

After a 30 minute drive and another 20+ minutes in a canoe, we were heading across my favorite bog. The rain had pretty much quit (FINALLY) as we were setting up the blind so we decided to just make a small brush blind next to an old beaver dam. This is where my bad luck with weather continued. The rain had stopped....BUT THE WIND STARTED BLOWING. We would have never hunted this evening if it was this windy back at camp.....but we were set up and I planned on staying.

About 20 minutes into our sit, while doing our best to call a bull out of the dark timber upwind of us, I heard a noise to our right. I turned to look at Fern (outfitter) who was set up about 40 yards to our right and his eyes were as big as saucers. We had never expected anything to approach downwind in the big bog since it would smell us way before getting close enough for us to see it....but he was pointing and I my heart started pounding.

Fern said he thought he heard a faint grunt...and when he turned around, this bull was staring in our direction from just over 100 yards away. Fern still had a visual on the bull but Bill and I were blocked by trees. Once Fern could no longer see the bull, he crawled over to the other side of the beaver dam and started cow calling from another 40 yards away from us. This was all it took to pull this guy back into the open and the rest is history. The shot was just over 100 yards and he ran about 20 before tipping over.

It is a DREAM of mine to hunt moose in the Yukon, but I know it will never happen. Ontario is my Yukon and I LOVE IT. Besides, you can shoot bulls approaching the 60" mark up there and pay a fraction of what it would cost to do the same in the Yukon.

Great trip with great friends.....Kashabowie Outposts in Ontario is my home away from home.
Why shoot on the last day what you didn't want to shoot on the first?

I'm heading back up this fall for the archery hunt with again only one bull tag available. Since the guy I'm going with has never killed a moose, I will stick to filming on this trip.
