Hunting


Anyone ever wonder why you are not permitted to shoot a sow with a cub, but you can shoot a cow with a calf...

It's a personal decision. I wouldn't shoot a cow with a calf.

I have always wondered about that, I would not take a cow that I know has a calf, but would take the calf late in the season if that was all was available. You would probably be doing the calf a favor if it was alone and the cow dead.

Our moose herd really does need protection and the hunters have to stand together and do just that.

We seen a cow and calf last January in the snow and that calf followed every move the cow made. Mortality rate is high enough let alone taking the mother. There is a possibility of another cow taking it as her own. That calf will stand by the paunch bawling until someone or something gets it.

I don't think the calf will survive it's first winter alone. The cow has to show the calf where to find food in a harsh winter.

We will not shoot a cow if she has a calf. But we will take the calf if we have the licence for it.  I don't think that it's right to do so. I have seen a lot of calf's bauling out to the cow and the cow is dead. If there is enough coyote's in the area that calf is as good as gone.

But in saying that I would guess to say that the sow will get meat for the cub and a calf can eat on it's own.?????????????
