Oy, tough year in northern Alberta for this hunter. Seeing lots, but nothing either that we have a tag for or on property we're allowed to hunt on. Oh how I wish I got my Moose draw this year.

Oh, don't get me wrong, I love just being out. We just got spoiled the last 3 years with lots of limited entry draw tags and this year only 1 for a Mule Buck. I have 5 weeks left and I plan on spending every available minute out wandering around the bush looking for critters.

Sunday I took those Moose pictures and all total I saw 8 of them. It was a great day. It just figures that since I didn't get a Moose draw that that's what we're seeing.... Laughing

Does the game department let the animals know who has the tags? Is that why you only see the animals you can't have?

Absolutely, The critters get a copy of the hunting regs a month early and they actually do the limited entry draws. No moose draws in unit 521....all Moose go there, and so on.... Very Happy

Cool pictures. Seen a ton of moose here in Utah, one bull I would have shot had I had a tag. Sadly it takes decades of points to draw a moose tag... good news is I'm near the top tier, which means I'll get a tag in the next 5 years.

Big suckers though... had one smaller bull charge my truck.

I've been eager for the season to open in two weekends. While hunting for hogs two weeks ago, I watched this buck come to my feeder for 30 minutes. Its only an 8-point whitetail but his tines are twice as tall as the other mature bucks in the area. Biggest buck I have every seen with my eyes. It took him 10 minutes to move 75 feet from the underbrush to the feeder. He moved so slow and cautiously, always scanning, he never tripped the motion sensor. These are 4 time lapse snapshots. I also merged some night shots into one image at the other feeder. It will be interesting to see if I have the patience to wait for his return during the rut or the luck to meet him again. I plan on being out on the lease most of November. I replay my moves to engage him so I can go to sleep at night (better than thinking about work). .270 at the ready with 129 LRXs!

I didn't wait for the buck above. At sunrise Saturday morning, I was watching an 8-pt chasing a doe when this guy barged in and drove the other off. I only got a glimpse of the right side of his rack before he turned away. Just remember there were too many points to count. I had about 5 seconds to decide before he was back in the trees. He was in tall grass going away and could only see the top of his back and neck. Exit wound is lower right side of neck - DRT. Hard to get one picture that shows all the points. There are 5 on the left and 7 on the right (small one doesn't count). I have an elk hunt in 3 weeks so am using my .270 until then - 129 LRX at 3100 fps, Rem brass, Rem Mag Primers, and 55.5gr IMR 4350.
