The main moose hunting area is on the northern edge of the sheep concession(160 square mile private parcel). This area had a tremendous forest fire in 2010. Since then the regrowth has created some of the best moose hunting habitat and moose population. Our outfitter started moose hunting this area 5 years ago and has since gone 9 for 11 with the average bull measuring 61 inches.
Only one out of the three moose camps are equipped with cabins. The other 2 consist of wall tents, which are comfortable and equipped with wood stoves. A typical moose hunting day starts around 6am with a full breakfast. All moose camps are smack dab in the middle of prime moose habitat.
Once daylight breaks a quick and careful inspection of the area is conducted. After the all clear, a slow and methodical 30 minute hike up to a high point will take place. From the look out, prepare to get settled in for the majority of the day and let the binoculars do all the work. Periodically the guide will perform a series of moose calls in order to bring out or bring in that big bull. September is the “rutting” period for moose. Bull moose become very vocal and tend to travel a tremendous amount in their search for cows. Patience is the “key” while moose hunting. During this time of the year, daylight usually lasts until 9 pm, so “cat naps” on the look out are well recommended. To cap off a long day on the look out, a large dinner is served between 9 and 10 pm.
