    Default Cow and calves

    Today was the opening day of calf moose season in northern ontario.....first hour had a cow come out with no calf....pretty disapointed...anyways just wondering did she realy have no calf or was the calf just hidden....let me know if you guys have any opinions on that.

    Itís not uncommon for a cow to keep her calves hidden when they are younger, depending on where you saw her. If she was out in a cutover, Iíd say she didnít have a calf. At this age, calves wonít be far from the cow...

    I don't think what you saw is uncommon. Of the cows I've seen hunting moose, it's been 50/50 to see a calf tagging along

    Young calves are never farther than a few steps from the mother. If you did not see one, she probably did not have one.

    Sad to see that a large number of cows do not have surviving calves. Bad omen for the future moose population.

    Bad for future and bad for hunting....where i hunt it is next to impossible to get adult tags so when i encounter cows and there aint a calf it kinda sucks

    I'm still amazed Ontario allows calf hunting while Moose numbers are on downward spiral..

    I knew guys that had two cow tags last week but couldn't shoot calves. They got one and thankfully it didnt have a calf. But that's just seems so dumb, shoot the cow and leave the calf to survive on its own

    It eould kinda make sense if the bull would be the givin tag instead of calf....at lesst where i am we mostly see bulls through the summer months.
