Is this moose poop?
Maybe elk? Where is it? ... besides the future, that is. ;0)
never ate moose, couldn't say for sure
That's moose poop. No doubt. Late fall or winter poop to boot. May be a paddle or two laying around the area.
It should taste like willow bark lol
Moose, but you gotta taste one to be sure.
I have seen them before and i am sure they are porcupine eggs The Trackman
They're smart pills. Chew them very slowly, wash down with an RC Cola, and you'll learn a valuable lesson.
Jaazus!!! Moose for sure bud!!!!!!
looks like a hand and a boot to me
Thanks I thought it was moose, much different then elk, just wanted to be sure.
Porcupine as far as I can tell. I would put $ on it..
Porcupine, Moose is just like elk /deer only slightly larger Redclub
I dont know about determining poop in 2072, but in 2010 the only sure-fire way to tell is to taste it!
That's winter range moose poop....
That is without a doubt bigfoot poop
CHUPACABRA! I said it first!
That's some interesting chit! Those things last forever. I have particle board that would fall apart sooner exposed to the elements like that.
Climbed a near vertical south face in ID elk hunting a couple years ago (trying to drop into another area from above with the right wind and glass it) and the entire face was covered in it. I mean covered, not just some here and there. I literally could have filled several 55 gal drums with it. (Any market for it? Or is the market saturated after last nights speech? LOL!)
I was told it took years and years to break down so that's why there was so much of it, it just accumulated over the years. They were there because the steep slope held less snow and the south side was warmer, made a good place to yard up in the winter.
I had to crawl up much of the area. Amazing to me how they ever even got there.
Right, winter moose poo in sept? Porcupine is woody like that all year, I could look at the trees around there and know for sure, moose in sept. Would be much darker brown..
It could have been a year old.
definitely pocupine dropping. they are usually around the base of conifer trees where they feed or in rock pile when they den.
This thread is a load of crap LOL!!
Dang J-Rod, ya beat me to that one....
It was very old poop looked "freeze dried" and if their were that many procupines pooping that size I would be worried!
Definitly moose, without a doubt. I have seen it many times in Canada with actual moose tracks around it.
winter range moose poop is dry woody and lasts over a year or 2, so despite this phot being taken in sept I still say it's moose poop. I see dry woody moose poop every year in september from the previous year...and I've been Hunting moose over 20 years!
I hunted goats in Alaska a couple of years ago. We would fill our water containers in the small creeks at times when hiking over the flats to the ridges. You could not find a 5 foot stretch of those creeks without a few of the moose dropping laying on the bottom of the creek...never got sick though. Did not have a filter with me since was assured the water was pristine there.
Sure it was, the water was "pasture" ized.
Saxton? Have you ever seen porcupine poop? The go to the same spot in the woods to deficate. Their droppings are huge. Often at the base of a tree but not always, the picture that medince posted is moose poop. Notice the lack of course fiber in it. We have porcupine everywhere around here. Infact I could mail everyone some if they really don't think it could be that large. Lol,
I'd bet the moose poop you seen in the creek was beaver poop and you are lucky you didn't get giardia
