Thread: Does anyone here hunt?

A frind of mine tagged one of these in Northern Alberta.
It looked right at him when he fired, got it right in the Brainstem with a 30-30.
His dad was tired of getting ripped off by butchers so he learned how to do it himself.
I got a few huge fat steaks out of it. Tasty.

It's really hard to explain.
Beef-like texture, but tough. Had to marinate it overnight, and tenderize for about 20 minutes in order to eat it like a civilized person. (with fork, not hands.)
Kind of like organ meat. Probably really high in protein.

I had moose once a long time ago. Was a bit fatty... like the duck of red meat.

I was hanging with this guy out in B.C. a few years back who was an avid hunter and he served me up some moose sausages over a campfire. They were quite tasty."

Edit: Moose is some of the best and worst I've ever had. So much can depend on how you take care of it.

I hunt doves, ducks, geese, quail, and deer.
For doves and quail, I use a Winchester 101 O/U 12 gauge (with plans to pickup an 20g O/U if I can find one for a decent price). For ducks and geese, I use an inexpensive Mossberg pump in 12 gauge, and for deer, I prefer an older Remington rifle in .270 (with Leupold glass).

Down south i either use my PTR-91 (.308) or a Remington 870 12 ga.
Got a Weatherby in .270 for when i hunt anywhere that requires range and accuracy. PTR has a Hensoldt scope while my Weatherby rolls with a Swarovski 9x36 variable power.
