Our friends are back again this morning. And you definitely want to turn the sound on for this one!
Ryan walked down the trail to say good morning and get some pictures. When we woke up, I saw one laying down off trail. About 20mins later our 8yo came down eyes all a glittered because she saw a second one further down the trail.
So despite -10 Ryan took a walk to say good morning. Listen close to the beginning of the clip. You’ll hear two load grunts. There was a third moose deeper in the bush that we didn’t see. He let off a warning call to tell anyone around that there was danger nearby. You can see the two in this clip respond and decide meal time was over. I’m sure they’ll be back though. This time of year food resources are in shorter supply and the snow is deep. They will come closer to the cabin to travel on easier trails and enjoy fresh tree tops when Ryan drops a tree.
While driving back to Saskatchewan from my old home I stopped to gas up at a First Nations Gas Bar at Long Lac Ontario. While paying for gas I saw a stack of these moose calls on a shelf behind the counter, and so sorted through them to select this perfect model. An elder sitting in the cafe said this is an authentic Anishinaabe moose call! I said how about the holes drilled with an electric drill ? He said "we are modern Indians" to which we both had a good laugh! I practiced my lonesome cow & cranky Bull calls for the elder and his friends, and passed the test. I told him my only concern was will it work in Cree country? He said why would you live in Cree country I said a girl, he said of course and we all laughed again.#fjell_storm_bushcraft#moosecall#birchbark#birchbarkart#northernontario#canadiana
