Yeah Iíve hunted moose in Alaska. Was not successful. Go to Africa. You can do a plains game hunt for near the same money.


Thanks, Billy

I haven't but have a friend in Alaska who does it quite often.
He says most important is to shoot it close to the road or water (if traveling by boat).

I have taken two shiras moose in Wyoming DIY. It helps when the landowner is willing to lend a hand. They are big but not unmanageable.

I've hunted them, though not in Canada. I was hunting a bit further east - Finland. No luck on moose though it was a great hunt.

Rifles are similar to boats and young women...there's no end to how much money you can pour into them without making them any more useful.

Go with a tent hunt. Wet, miserable, mosquitos, most work after the shot... And most memorable hunt I've been on. And best eating critter in the north country.

It's a RUGER, for cryin' out loud; "What's the round count?" or "How many rounds down the tube?" are irrelevant!

I'm gonna do a moose hunt some day myself. Not sure if I'll spend the $$$ to go to theYukon/AK, but Newfoundland sounds interesting.

Did an Alaska 12 day float trip for moose with longbows. Great time, killed some wolves but no moose. Alaska is a young mans trip doing it that way. Cold, wet camping and tough on the body.

Went hunting nearvFortbSaint John, British Columba, Canada. I was on a goat hunt but they were not cooperating so I decided to try for a moose instead. Got a decent one for the area. [Linked Image]

Reach out to Mark at Anchor Bar in Alberta. When I was there a couple of years ago hunting whitetail and and mule deer, I saw a ton of moose. Close enough to drive and bring everything back. It is outrageously expensive to ship meat from Canada. Oh, moose meat is damn good.

Killed a few here in Idaho and Wyoming. Take a lot of people out for their's when they draw a tag. Perfectly willing to help anyone wanting info on the process here in Idaho. Our Price is $152 for a license, and then a refundable fee of $2150 to apply. You can buy deer and elk tags over the counter and make a great combo hunt.

I lived in Northwest Ontario some ten years and hunted them. They were nearly wiped out in the area since whitetail moved in and brought Brainworm parasites which killed the moose. That was 15 years ago and they haven't really repopulate the Lake of the Woods area. I would head west into British Columbia, Alberta, or the Yukon for biggest animals. They are exceptionally tasty......and lots of meat on those animals.

I'm 2 for 2 with decent bulls on a couple trips up north of Prince George, British Columbia. Both trips were based at a main lodge, hunting was out of remote spike camps or remote cabins. You will learn to appreciate stainless/synthetic rifles (30-06 both times for me) and pack horses.

Wyoming takes PP and lots of them to draw, a random draw tag is possible though.
Anyone with near max or max PP in Wyoming I know the best area to hunt by far.
You could find FS cabin to stay in or hunt from town, Laramie.
Idaho has some great moose hunting too and sounds like easier to get a tag.
More affordable hunts in Quebec, Alberta etc.. for shiras moose.

The landowner who granted free access for my last shiras dropped him in the shade for quartering by his barn. My bulls have been fairly youngish and great eating.

Western Wy is seeing a decline in both quantity and quality due to wolves impact. I know we are down some also, but the decrease in tags is mostly in the northern area. Not too many changes in the SE portion of the state. Several good outfitters in the area and hunts are quite reasonable for a Shiraz bull. Seems like AK BC and Yukon hunts are getting really expensive.

If any one is interested my first moose harvest story was published in Traditional Bowhunter April/May issue 1996. https://tradbow.com/product/aprmay-96/

I have not but have several friends that have. They all say how excited they are until they get next to their dead moose and realize they just shot a Surburban and had to get it out!
That said it is on my bucket list.
