    Im not that good of a tracker, only know the basics. But it seems as if the Wolves were-----fighting or something to do with territory?? I don't know. But the chewed up soil and tree make only some sense to me, gathering nutrients from the inner tree bark, looking for sustenance??? Maybe hunger, but why in just that 50 yard radius.....wow I can't do this.

    My guess would be that the pups that were born in the spring are having play time. Running around just acting crazy.

    Just a guess.

    1. If it's in your kit and you don't know how to use it....It's useless.
    2. If you can't reach your kit when you need it....Its useless.

    Now, see? I suspect he had the answer, and Frank, I did ask experienced trackers to let it be...ahem...but hey, it's all in fun.

    Pop quiz #2...experienced trackers and hunter please give the kids first shot at this...

    You are paddling in a canoe or in a motorized boat, moose hunting--alone. (yeah unfair to people who don't live where moose live, but hey, I gotta go with what I know, right?) OK, you're serious about this hunt, family needs meat. You stop at the south end of a small island, maybe 1/4 long and 200 yards at it's widest-- and there are moose tracks (yay!), It's a single set of tracks, very large and quite fresh and when it came out of the water it started moving at a pretty good trot, but certainly not galloping (or whatever the heck you call it when a moose runs fast). It's around 8:30 in the morning. The foliage on the island is heavy willow thickets and quite a bit of large conifer cover with a lot of mossy ground and bare rock ground cover. You're on the south shore of the island, the moose tracks came out of the water on the south end of the island and are clearly pointing north. The wind is from the south. You really want to shoot this moose, what should you do? I'll look for some answers later on today...

    1st guess - need to get to the north end of the island so that the wind doesn't carry your scent or the sound of the motor.

    Get on the North side of the island, pick a spot and wait for the moose to come to me since it would no longer be able to smell me.

    (No moose around here, and never been hunting)

    Oh - I forgot to set my moose trap.
    You dig a hole big enough to hols a moose.
    You fill the hole with all the ashes from your campfire.
    Then, you put peas all around the hole as bait.
    Than, when the moose comes to take a pea, you kick him in the ash hole.

    meanwhile, back on the topic....
    At this point, my hunting knowledge would be complete guesses.
    Perhaps, once on the north end of the island, set up a ground level blind?

    Not a moose hunter, so pure guess. Getting around to the north side as stated. Pick an area where you have some visibility. Call the moose in short intervals. Saw a show a while back that talked about making noise in the brush and then immitating the sound of the female. Wait and watch. My moose calling skills are pretty well non existant, so no telling what will come wandering in. But food is food right?

    Moose traps, Ashholes, Imitating moose mating rituals. I ain't touching this one...

    I do have one question: Why would you be paddling in a motorized boat? Why not just use the motor?

    Wait....I get it....you are trying to be quiet.....,

    Okay, I'm gonna go crazy here 'cause I know nothing of moose. However, that never stopped me from doing anything before. Here's what I'd do.

    I'd cut the island in half by going half way around and putting back in. I'd work my way in slowly and look for signs of the big fellow or his/her tracks. I have him trapped (or him me, whichever) so to speak. If he takes back to water I only have to follow him and wait for him to make shore to get a shot off (sure don't want him down in the water!).

    If I find tracks then I know he's further north along the island and I have the wind at a disadvantage. That means I have to move north again. However, if he hasn't made it that far then I'm ahead of the game with a downwind advantage.

    Shhhhh. There he is. Steady......
