This moose was a lot like Koskoosh because it was too old to keep up with its tribe as well. At the end of the story Koskoosh dies by being attacked by wolves. Koskoosh decided this was “The law of life”. (12) The setting of this story is a cold winter. Around this time the tribe is moving to a warmer place where they can find food.
Most at that time poached to stay alive by using the meat and hides. In the present day some people still poach just to stay alive but the main concern is the taking of trophy size animals. The horns of and big buck or bull sell for exceptionally high prices. This is a big concern for the animals and for the people who depend on their existence for survival. Colorado has had one of the biggest problems with poaching.
They would also use it’s bladder for food bags, it’s tongue as a hair brush, and even its brain for tanning hides. Their religious beliefs, of using every part of the buffalo became a major reason why they were able to live on the plains. Another reason they were able to survive in such a harsh way of life, was that they were a community in which Polygamy was encouraged. This was because of the outnumbering ratio of women to men, due to the men dying during hunts, and battle. This meant that each man could also have a lot more children than if he were to only marry one wife; the community would then grow bigger and stronger, for battle and for hunting.
Susana Cuellar Mrs. Lyday English 101 17 October 2012 “Why I Hunt” In the story “Why I Hunt” readers have a chance to get a passionate hunter’s perspective in what hunting is like. Rick Bass shares his story of an unplanned immigration west to the Yaak valley next to the Kootenai National Forest with his wife. The immigration near this well resourced forest obligated Bass to become more involved in hunting. In the story he helps readers understand how he feels as he hunts in a natural forest rich with a variety of prey.

The author uses some technical language such as ‘vitaminC’ and ‘scurvy’ to implie that this is the only source of food, energy, tools and money in the High Arctic, which shows her sympathy to the hunters as hunting for Narwale is the only job they can do. The area in the High Arctic is not suitable for growing other vegetables. Narwhals has a rich source of useful nutrition, so Inuit people catch the narwhal as a main source of food. Also, the Narwhal’s ivory can be used for many things such as ‘harpoon tips’, ‘hunting implements’ and ‘central beam for their small ancient dwellings’. These fully describe that Inuit people can’t live without the Narwale, as it can help the Inuit people to survive.

Some hunters say that they can smell you from a mile away. Many hunters wear all kinds of cover scents while hunting, such as raccoon urine, fox urine, also buck and doe urine.
