Moose in Iowa??
« on: 11/14/13 14:45 UTC »
You fellers up north need to start keeping your critters in your own back yard.  They found this guy wandering around the Protivin Iowa area.  You certainly don't see Moose perusing the Iowa corn fields often... weird.

Deer are bad enough, I'd hate to hit that with my car.

I got just what da doctor ordered for that!  MRX or Norma Oryx pills, take one and call me in the mornin'.

We'll take that one off Yawls' hands there, Jerry Sir.

Bobcat won't do it.

I've seen these guys after being hit up at the cabin. They generally bring in two flatbed trucks. One for the vehicle and the other for the carcass going to the locker. Up here if you hit you get to keep it. The vehicles are usually totaled. The one in the pic looks to be about 900 to 1000 pounds.

Brain worm Mo. Bad stuff. Minnesota has cancelled any more immediate moose seasons due to dwindling numbers, in large part due to the worm infestation. Now Iowa is stealing them. Nice.

About ten years ago a friend went to Canada moose hunting and popped a dandy. He brought it home and to a locker for cutting and packaging. His wife didn't like the way it "smelled" while cooking so she made him get rid of it. I paid him what the locker costs were and got the whole critter. That's some darned good chewing. My buddy's wife is still carping about the head in their living room.
