Jodi and the Moose

Bull Call Gets More Than Bargained For

I shot this moose up north of Finland. A park ranger (Jim Bishop) from Tettegouche State Park taught me how to call bulls in, but he forgot to tell me I should of been in deer stand when doing it. The bull charged me 50 ft away and I peed my pants. Good thing I shot him in the heart. Within minutes I was charged by another and peed my pants again :) I went to go get help and a pack of wolves ran in between my husband and I. Yep I peed my pants again. Took 11 hours to get it out. I gutted it, skinned it, and quartered it while my husband packed it out. Then he made me carry the head and hide out. Got back to camper and we put a deer camera outside the camper on the moose meat because the wolves were leaving wolf scat outside our camper every night. I thought, I'm gonna get some good pics if they come back. About 4 am I woke my husband up and told him something was eating my moose meat outside the camper because I thought I felt the camper move and heard noises. He just said, "go back to bed you just having post traumatic stress from the moose charging you!" Got up the next morning and the camera had a moose picture on it right next to the camper. Pretty exciting week, but I will never, ever call a moose again with out being 20 ft off the ground.
