“Here’s a Moose Madness Masterpiece”
You gotta give credit to Alex Gouthro. When this guy sets out to create the most comprehensive video guide on moose hunting and calling ever produced, he does it right. Several years in the making, Gouthro’s Moose Madness Series DVD package is an A-to-Z action/information blockbuster that should be required viewing for anyone venturing into moose country.
In all, there are 4 DVDs and over 6 hours of video footage giving you everything you’ll ever need to know about North America’s largest member of the cervidae family: moose characteristics, subspecies and sizes, habitat, and a complete understanding of the moose rut. But once this general moose info is laid out, the focus shifts to specific calling techniques and tips, hunting setups, decoying, and numerous in-the-field encounters with rutting bulls. As a bonus, there’s a crash course in moose anatomy, shot placement, and field dressing complemented by expert advice on choosing effective firearms and bowhunting gear. A couple of actual calling/shooting sequences cap the action.
Speaking as someone who’s hunted moose with Alex Gouthro and seen this master Ontario caller, guide, and fellow bowhunter in action, I can attest to the fact he’s the real deal. In fact, 97% of the DVD footage was taped by Alex and his hunting buddies outside of federal or provincial parks in actual hunting areas during open seasons. Such realism adds an unmistakable air of authenticity and authority to Moose Madness. I give it an enthusiastic thumbs up!
