The Moose That Came Home

I mentioned that my husband came home with moose meat. They only got one so we have half a moose, not bad since this is how large the moose is.

 

 

Yes, it is frozen. It was about -25 to -30 when they "got" this moose so it will hang in the garage until it is ready to process.

Health updates: I took my husband to the Doctor on Sunday morning and he was given an antibiotic and is improving daily. Later on Sunday I took Levi in to the same Doctor and as he has followed right behind Dad in getting one sickness after another for a couple of months. He is now being treated for pertussis but the Doctor is not sure Levi has said pertussis but since he was overdue for his DTP immunization he was treated and tested for pertussis. If he has pertussis, we will find out in about two weeks, the entire family will need to be treated. I agree with the Doctor that he does not have pertussis. Mom things the immune system was zapped last winter and has yet to recover. Immune system boosting will begin.

  1. Lots going on up there! So, I want to know more about the hunting. How far do they have to go? Do they hire a plane? How do they get the moose home? I hope you all get your immune systems back to par.

    1. For this trip they drove about 70 miles and then rode snow machine for about 30-40 miles to a cabin and hunted from there. Moose are huge so they gut and quarter the moose in the field and bring the moose home in quarters, rib portion and backstrap and tenderloin pieces.

  2. Wow that is a big moose. Why only half? Do you share with another family?

    So sorry there is still sickness but glad your husband is on the mend. :)

  3. I'm glad you said it was frozen, because I was wondering what that white stuff was. :o) Congratulations!

  4. I think we need a faster way of testing for pertussis! I hope that isn't it. We have had 91 confirmed cases of influenza in Alaska already as of yesterday morning... that doesn't sound good. I hope all of you recover quickly...
