Moose and Boar Hunting with Husky: Husky Hunting Tactics

The tactics of hunting for moose and hunting for wild boar depends on the season, if it is hunting for moose on the black tropic, then there is one tactic, and hunting for moose and wild boar in the snow is carried out in a completely different way. Especially interesting is hunting with a husky moose during the rutting season, when the sound of a racing moose is imitated using a waba. No less interesting is hunting a wild boar with a husky along the white path. Read more about hunting with huskies on ungulates below.

Wild boar and moose hunting
There are a number of ways of hunting wild boar and hunting moose: from a shed, from approaching at night at the place of a wild boar lodging, a corral, etc. My tactics for hunting moose and hunting a wild boar depends on the time of year: it is black-and-white, and in the snow she is different.

Hunting moose with husky during the rut
Hunting with a husky moose during the rutting season: in the morning or in the evening, not far from the salt marshes with urinary points or not far from the “chasing pit”, the sound of a chasing moose is imitated using a waba (the dog is next to it on a leash). Moose hunting is fascinating. After we receive an answer from the bull at our call, we lower the dog off the leash (I have previously indicated that I develop a stable association of the “to me” team with the moose’s racing sound in my dogs) and she goes to the potential prey “by ear”, at the moment the dog enters the moose – the dog casts a voice. At the beginning of the attack, my dogs bark the beast not intensely, a little from a distance, then the intensity of the attack increases. The behavior of a racing moose at the time of the attack: “oh, who are you?” From the side of the dog: “who are you?” And the dog continues: “Give-Give, Give-Give.” The moose listens to whether anyone is behind the dog … doesn’t: “Well, I’m right now for you”, and a quick throw towards the dog, the dog jumps to the side, but not far, and starts with a new force already: give-give-give! ” The moose stands on its hind legs and with its front hooves tries to hit the annoying dog. Laika jumps again from the elk’s head: “give – give – give – oooo! Give-give-give-ooooh! ”Distances are two meters, while the dog wriggles out of himself wretched, squeezes his hind legs and tail, as if it were spreading on the ground, now, it seems that the beast will deliver him a mortal blow, but no … short rebound, and again: “give-give-give-oooo! Give-give-give-ooooooo! ”(With submission). At this moment, the hunter realizes that the game phase has entered a decisive stage and begins to approach the beast from the leeward side by ear. On such a moose hunt, the approach technique should be calm, the principle – like a capercaillie song: barks – you go, trails off – you stand. Closer to the battlefield, you need to move from trunk to trunk (if the place is sparse, you can’t look at the beast straight, you will feel it only askance or from under the forehead), in the early autumn the foliage on the trees is still not fallen and there is rarely good visibility at the duel site, but everything is closer, the distance between the hunter and the target is 30 steps, in this case you need to slowly sit down and look at the tree trunk, not at the crown, then wait for the moment when the beast turns to board you, aim at the carcass and shoot. At the moment before the shot it seems to you that everything around is freezing, the beast distracted by the dog, the dog attacking the beast cunningly, looking in your direction, waiting for the treasured shot … only the beat of your heart in your chest, echoing in your temples. A shot, a beast turns its head in your direction and descends along the trunk of a nearby tree. “I noticed late … you’ve already been taken …”, you think to yourself, but you don’t remove goals from the front sight. The dog furiously throws himself at the beast and calms down only with the departure of the dying agony of the beast. The reward for the dog is the heart of the defeated enemy, and with it the strength.

Moose hunting after rutting and snowing in winter
I have the following tactics of hunting moose on the black trophy after the rut: a constant walk with the dog in the morning or evening of the prepared, studied territory, taking into account the direction of the wind and the natural terrain. Such is the hunt for moose on the black tropic.

Moose hunting tactics along the white trail: searching for an incoming trail of the beast as a result of going around the area and the absence of an exit trail gives me a signal to start the hunt. Moose in winter is not so confident in itself, as during the rutting season and before the hunt. I always place comrades, 2-3 people, depending on the site, on the possible ways of the beast’s departure, and I go with the dog along the trail, taking into account the wind, of course. We beat the beast as necessary: ​​if the dog succeeded in distracting the beast in the forest – from the approach, the dog did not succeed – then at the exit, on the numbers.
