MOOSE HEART is a prize pos­ses­sion in New­found­land. A lot of New­found­lan­ders will serve it at Christ­mas­time. They stuff it with bread­crumbs and bake it in the oven. I’d much rather serve it raw, in its beau­ti­ful, nat­u­ral form. It’s a great way to cel­e­brate the an­i­mal. Last year I shot a cow, but then, as we were dress­ing it we saw another moose, a big bull, on the hori­zon. So I put the heart and liver out of the way, on a rock, and we went af­ter it. When we got back we found two bald ea­gles had got there first. They’d eaten the heart and were start­ing on the liver. I’m hop­ing for bet­ter luck this year. —J.C.
