    I think I am going to start calling a group of moose a muster. Actually I am going to call the patent office and put a trademark on muster of moose, so some gun writer 30 years from now can talk about how the infamous Edelweiss coined the phrase muster.

    In the Navy "muster" is the term for roll call of your troops in morning "quarters" (what the Army calls formation).

    A lot of people call pronghorn antelope "goats". And even their scientific name is antelocapra americana, not capra anything, so they are NOT goats. But I don't really get upset about that either.

    And reindeer and caribou are the same sub species of deer, both are rangifer tarandus.

    Of course the stag thing really isn't that big either. Red deer are cervus elaphus and American elk are cervus canadus. So that's not that much of a difference. As European moose (elch, Alg, elk, in the native language) are alces alces, and ours are alces shirasi, alces gigas, alces andersoni or alces americana.

    Calling a elk a stag isn't taxanomically as wrong as calling a pronghorn a goat.

    Either way I think it's kind of silly to get worked up over. Then again I hate the term harvest, with a passion so to each his own.

    Ivory tip what do you call a herd of moose anyway? A flight? A bundle? A sack? A muster of moose?


    Calling pronghorn, goats is my pet peeve, they are not a goat, actually not even close! They aren't even an antelope, but that's the closest thing I guess. It's one of those things where I wonder who came up with calling them a goat and what they were thinking.

    I think doing it on television just shows your ignorance.

    I guess I am guilty of most of this stuff: "Shooter, harvest, monster, etc." I kind of like it when people get excited about hunting.

    I guess it just doesn't bother me as much as it does some other guys.

    I don't care for the ridiculous inflated B&C scores on most hunting shows. If those are the real scores I have seen A LOT of 180 mulies out there.

    I don't understand why they get so hung up on shooting 4 & 1/2 year old deer or whatever their age number is.

    Why don't they shoot 8 or 9 year old bucks, or does and fawns if they really care about quality deer management?

    Elk are the same way, if they have something wrong with them we should kill them when they are raghorns, if not let them get old and big.
