Freaky Friday Fauna

I snapped this picture a few days ago while driving to Crookston, Minnesota.  I was just driving down the road in the morning, sipping my PBR N/A from my coffee mug, when I came across this.  I circled and labled the object for you. 

mooseLike RD, I’ve been known to dabble a bit in photography.  Now I admit, it’s no beautiful RD photo but if you get close to your computer screen, turn your head ever so slightly and squint your eye a tad, you can definately make out that the object is a moose.  Enjoy the photo!

    Nice Bman but, I really feel sorry for the fauna It should be in a warmer spot….such as on my grill.

    Nice pix Bman! And this old man didn’t have to squint. And, oh yes, I think it should be laying on the charcoal. Good eatin’.

    Proof positive of Global Warming as we see a lone wildebeast in Central Africa migrating South.

    Interesting. He seems to have a notch out of his left ear. I wonder what caused that.

    Must not be a lot of moose in NoDak. Twenty eight years in Alaska taught me to love moose. I don’t like it on charcoal. I like it in stew or pot roast. They are deer so the fat on them tastes bad. Kinda rancid.

    I would grind 70-80% into hamburger, using beef suet, and the choice cuts would be roasts and steaks. I think my favorite was to peel the meat off the scapula and roll it up, tie it with string, into a rolled roast. Make a gravy with the stuff in the pan and serve slices with gravy.

    The heart is also very good if not full of bullet holes.

    Through the years I have shot lots of things in the ass but never in the heart or head. Jim, I have marinated a lot of wild steaks in Dale’s liquid seasoning and then cooked gently on the grill. Outstanding!

      Moose tends to dry out on the grill. I like to saute the steaks or stew the meat. Either way, it’s incredible. I had the other tenderloin (from my doe this past November)for dinner last night w/ fried potatoes. Yum.
