I am betting he was boiling a scull and uses a power washer to clean the excess meat and hide off it.

We used to dip hogs in boiling water then scrape the hair off before butchering. Maybe they are working on a roadkill or poached (no pun intended) moose!

OK - LOL - thanks guys. I tried calling him today, but no answer. Maybe he's still chasing the Moose around Anchorage with his portable power washer in hand. Thanks for the laughs!

Rance, you do pour boiling water all over say, a chicken to ease removing the feathers. But with the moose, the guy said he has to remove it at some specific time, 27, 37 minutes or whatever it was...
That can't be it than.
Maybe some local way of getting rid of gamey taste in it?

Naaaa... probabely misguided cooking trick just like pre-boiling spare ribs before barbecueing it.

What's the taste of moose like? Is it salty like human flesh?

Salty, eh? I've always read of it as being sweet. Some say veal, some say pork. Read up for yourself:
