This is a terrific moose hunting story, written by my friend James Cote who managed the referendum campaign that successfully defended bear hunting, and who is now very active in a variety of sportsmen’s issues and projects. I was particularly pleased by the key role played by my friends Greg Drummond and Ron Joseph.
The Last Minute Moose, by James Cote, October 15, 2015
Some define the last minute of Maine’s annual moose hunt as those waning minutes before sundown on the last day of the hunt when those moose hunters not fortunate enough to harvest a moose feel their chances slipping away.
For the purposes of this story, we will define the last minute as the time when the moose permit holder’s hunting party is scheduled to head home and leave him alone to find his moose for the remainder of the week.
