But, probably the most logical reason for shooting a moose is for the meat. Moose meat is some of the richest, tenderest, most delicious venison in the woods. I was recently on a trip in Alberta hunting with the T/C Dimension rifle and Rugged Outfitting, and while moose populations around North America are in flux, the area we were in (between Calgary and Edmonton) was chock-full of them. They were in farm fields and frozen muskeg swamps, in the ditches along the roads, and in the expansive logging cuts. In a week of hunting I saw more than 75 moose. Our group piled up the venison quickly.
