Moose require 14 bags for the meat. Caribou require 4 bags for the meat. In addition to the bags for the meat, if you are going to do a European mount, please bring 1 large cheese cloth, sock style game bag to wrap the head in. If you are keeping the cape, please bring one large Caribou Gear 60" X 28", 'single quarter game bag' for the cape.
