Hunters Urged to Use Caution During Big Game Seasons

With moose being reported in the Panhandle this year and a confirmed sighting of a young bull in Lincoln County this week the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission is urging hunters to be certain of their target before taking a shot.

Moose can be similar in appearance to other big game animals. Moose are large animals with a “bell” or large piece of skin under their necks; they have a pronounced shoulder hump and bulls (males) will have palmated antlers. Moose also have long, whitish colored legs and are dark brown in color.

Hunters will want to study game closely before firing a shot or releasing an arrow.

Game and Parks officials also remind people to keep their distance from any moose they may encounter as some have been known to become aggressive.
