Could you hold this still?

Not in a million year! That's pretty awesome video. I can't believe the cameraman could stay still let alone the hunter.

Kinda wonder about the intelligence of a moose. They don't seem too bright. My Alaskan friend says it like shooting a domesticated cow. He's had 100 % success on em. Sounds like a lot of work packing one out.

A momma moose with her calf is no thing to mess with, I would have never done that...

anyone ever take notice that the hunter almost looked like a maniquin? Just looking at the hunters hand when the moose was by the arrow, something just looked a little off to me. If it was indeed a real person....hats off to them, I know i couldnt do it

Ever see the footage of the cow on campus at the University of Alaska? A female student walks out of the dorm and turns away from a moose. The cow lifts its hoof and with one snap of the wrist hits the girl in the back of the head knocking her flat to the sidewalk ans killing her instantly.

Through in the fact that the cow is with a calf and I'd be long gone.

I agree, that something looks fishy with the maniquin.Hans

Wow, if it is real, that is impressive. I would have spooked her on purpose long before she sniffed the broadhead. I was kind of expecting to see some blood on her nose from that.

That video comes from my neck of the wood. I actually know a couple of guys that writes for that magazine

That video was done just to show how curious a moose can be

BTW it's a dummy and not a real person

Wow; for once it's a real video and a fake person, instead of a real person with a photoshopped animal and a made up story!

    • We live in some sort of Bizarro world now - Sarah Palin calling Trump sinfully stupid.     Here's another one from Ann Coulter, who literally wrote a book "In Trump We Trust"    
    • You do realize that if the taxes were done that way, the cities would get $2.53 billion richer, and rural areas would get $2.53 billion poorer. The 7 county metro pays substantially more taxes (nearly 2/3 of the states total) than the other 80 counties in Minnesota combined, but only receives roughly half of the state expenditures.   Sorry to break it to you, but rural America is not fiscally solvent. Those citiots you speak of are bankrolling the entire country. It's easy to see on this chart: more urban states are to the left (givers) and more rural states are to the right (takers).  
    • I tried to purchase the screws yetti uses from Fastenal who is their vendor for the screws. They are only sold in large reels designed for a self loading screwgun. I finally called Casey at Glacial lake docks where I purchased my yetti and he sent me out the amount I needed. They work great to add additional fir strips. The plastic used to tie them together comes right off as you screw them in. Hope that helps. 
    • Sorry...was wrong on the specs.   Manufacturer is Core Ice.  It was 1450# for a 12' and 1250# for a 8'.  
    • I believe you want to use a zinc coated or galvanized steel according to the charts.  I'm sure someone will come along to correct me
    • In the back room there is a company that is using bonded foam panels (similar to garage door panels, but really clean looking), and had weights of 1250# for a 12' and 1450# for a 16'.  Aluminum trailer frames that could convert to a skid frame.  Can't recall the name.  I'm sure they were spendy, but I can see a concept like that going somewhere for the hardcore fishing crowd.   Yetti, Firebrand, Big Bite, and Glacier all had really nice display models.      Lots of campers (disguised as fish houses) out there at prices that make me want to jump into the business.  I was in two different manufacturers houses with prices well over $30k that had wire nuts for connections.  That is going to be a fun adventure for someone 2-3 years down the road when they find out their manufacturer saved $15 on their wiring.           
    • Thank you for all the help!  Ended up going with the Marcum VS485C.  After some research, there were a few other Marcums that were on the list (825 & 625), the Aqua Vu HD, and the Pan Cam.  The mini cams from all manufactures weren't what I was looking for, but they are cool and do have their place.     After seeing everything in person, I think the Aqua Vu HD had the best camera/screen.  The Marcums were a little bit behind, but the 825, 625, 485, and Pan Cam had similar real life clarity.  The 485 won out because of the $300 price point vs the others at $450-700, and was almost identical for resolution, other than the HD.
      I honestly think these cameras are all about 5+ years behind in technology in comparison to the broader camera/tv screen market.  Running off a 7-9ah battery is probably one of the limiting factors.  Another may be the cold.  The main reason (IMO) is that the manufacturers are hoping they can incrementally rape us by trickling out technology each year, similar to the computer manufacturers of the 90s/early 2000's.  For the price of a middle of the road underwater camera, I can buy a Chinese made 50" TV (these all have Chinese made 5-8" screens) and a GoPro or Sony Action Cam (which is 10x's the picture quality).
