Why save a cape from a small moose? Cut properly a moose cape is a huge chunk of very thick hide.

Yup, the same place... going in just before the season starts...


Good luck might wander in there around the 15th or so maybe sooner all depends how crossing the delta river pans out. I drew a any bull permit for 20A. We have the boat to haul wheelers across the few braids that are not crossable on a wheeler. Just need to put the plan together..

Depends entirely on the cooler. There are plenty of inexpensive lightweight Igloos and Colemans to pick from. Not the best coolers, but plenty good enough for shipping meat.


And a strip of duct tape around the seam adds to the insulation value measurably.

The remainder of the meat was separated into 7 game bags and distributed to folks on his call list. The entire cape was brought home - from the shoulders to the tip on the nose.
Anything else?

Ordinary bull moose cape, salted, dried, and most salt shaken off, will weigh a hell of a lot more than 25 pounds. Lots of capes are ruined by cutting short... front of shoulders is too short. Rear of shoulders is a yard back.

I generically said "shoulders" not front of shoulders. My definition of "cape" is a suitable amount of hide to create a full shoulder mount. Anything else?

If cut behind the shoulders, as is required by virtually all taxidermists, a cape weighs a hell of a lot more than 25 pounds...

My buddy shot a bull moose (Sitka ) knows the country. Anyhow it was over 50 he said he was getting a shoulder mount. First time I rolled the guts out of moose. Got dark we got him opened to cool. Went in next morning to start the job. Good lord talk about work lol. We hauled I swear 100lbs of hide lol. I'm sure it was less than that but it was a two man operation lifting that thing.

My initial comment was to illustrate what I did in '15 with a my cape, meat and antlers. It was meant to be one option to the OP's questions. It was not intended to debate the finer points of proper caping and lawful meat handling. The lesson learned here is that remaining silent is a better course of action. I see why so many on the Alaksan Outdoor site have adapted the same policy.

I took 6 inches behind the front leg. Ringed my moose(over 50-squeaky) and cut the head off at the first joint with a knife.

Thought just getting that head/hide combo onto the 6 wheeler all by myself a few years ago around 1am would kill me. Evidently it did not.

This after thinking I could lift a complete hind in the bed myself too... my age is making me soft.. had to drag both hinds in while standing on the 6 wheeler.

Aint much on a moose small or light.

Comparing aod and 24hr is never a good plan... aod allows posters to say anything, even ridiculosly false stuff that may cause others issues. Getting real help is far more important IMO. Which may explain why aod is a ghost town these days. Only the clueless remain.

Your have a fine answer for the disposition of meat... but if you are maintaining the cape only weighed 25# you are very wrong.
