Ojibwe bands in Minnesota continue moose hunts to maintain tradition, treaty rights
October 19, 2020
DULUTH -- In late September, Jeff Tibbetts walked quietly through the Superior National Forest north of Isabella, past a spot where, the day before, he had startled a bull moose, only to watch it run away before he had a chance to shoot.
After the miss, as a thunderstorm raged, he had lain awake in his tent, stewing over his mistake, unsure if he would get another chance.
But in the morning, he was encouraged. It was a beautiful fall day in the north woods, the sun filtering through the trees.
