At 50 I guess I still get to learn stuff from these animals. Good luck all this whatís left of season.
I thought it was the cow that made the barking sound? Maybe it was the bull? Not positive which one it was. I was just cow calling, no bull grunts. Maybe I'd have had better luck bull grunting? Not sure. Thanks for the info though.
Hunting... The one vice, i'll never give up!

Google moose calls. I found out this way which call that roar I heard was. Definitely the bull as he slashed and raked willows just outa sight of me. Maybe you heard a different call. Mine was a growl roar. Iíll never forget it. Loud and only once. He then goasted away. I know it was the bull. He was dominant in the area and I saw him cross cut line 500 yds away then I moved down there and cow called with a following bull grunt. Then I could hear him thrashing willows and walking through a wet section of marsh before he walked away to a high point just before he roared. I shiver when I remember that noise. Lol.
Huntin and fishin fool!

Heard it 37 years ago in Manitoba when they first opened a moose hunt on he claims island. Closest sound to an African llion I've heard. Vince Crichton Manitobas moose biologist said it was a very aggressive warning call of dominant bull and rarely heard..

Reviving this old thread. On Wednesday I headed out moose hunting and on the way in I encountered a moose cow and a calf. No biggy, I watched for a while and they trotted off eventually. Then I carried on with the rest of my hunt. By the way the elk where screaming like crazy that evening. Too bad I didnít have a tag for one. Fast forward to the walk out in the dark. I donít like to use my headlamp until I absolutely need to and I could just make out the trail. When I got to the spot I encountered the cow and calf I heard the most ungodly growling noise and then the noise of a moose stepping away from me at probably 40 yards. Without hearing it before I knew what it was. Pretty confident it was the cow with her calf again. I heard the growl every 30 seconds as she slowly left. Wow! What a noise. Sounded like a lion or tiger snarling. Glad she did decide to whirl around and trample me in the dark. Fun stuff

I heard the same thing at my cabin one night and Iím pretty sure it was a cow with her calf that night too. Iím willing to bet a lot of the Bigfoot enthusiasts hear that, along with antlers cracking off the trees and figure itís a Bigfoot.
Iím not really a lawyer, I just play one on the internet.

Moose can make some funky sounds and at the volume they do can really stand the hairs on the back of your neck straight up!
Check out this cow moose barking back at me alarm style. She has done this to us when cow elk mewing on the same piece trying to call in elk.
