Sask Hunter, you have some beauties there for sure! How often do you draw a tag?

Only ever killed one moose. The rest are the result of 6 seasons of living the dream.

My only bull from 2009. I'm back in super A pool which means I could draw next season.

Oh man! killing me. Moose hunting pics and stories capture my attention like no other. 2 seasons ago the Moose hunting stories on huntingwashington were unreal. This years not quite as much but still moose hunting forums are my favorite.

Thanks for the pics!

Not too much more exciting than seeing a big bull on the ground!




I've found Maine to be a very difficult tag to pull so far. Now VT and NH used to be far easier. I've held moose tags in VT twice and NH once. I've taken a bull and a cow in VT and a bull in NH. All three were mature animals. Trouble is VT and NH have been slashing the number of tags lately. They say the herd isn't doing well do to tick mortality and brainworm. It's getting downright hard to draw a VT or NH moose tag and when you do the success rates are way down. Ten years ago things were booming with moose in New England, now only Maine seems to be thriving.
I prefer the .30-06 with 220 grain bullets for moose hunting.





These are the two I took in Vermont. The bull I took in NH was a half rack but he was 9 years old.
