Mikka1, I hunt moose and would enjoy talking to you about techniques and styles.WELCOME to the forum your imput is valued. I hunt in Maine but I guess it would hold true for any area.
I am going on a moose hunt this fall in Alberta. ###I don't know anything about it. ###I have harvested many whitetail and black bear but never moose. ###Any information you can provide about gear, tactics, bowhunting skills you can provide would be much appreciated.

Woodseye, ###It quite some times that I had put this post on when no reply came I completly forgot about it until today while browsing... I do moose hunt in Quebec, just on the border of Maine (Estcourt Quebec). ###As a matter of fact, we hunt right on the border. Some of our "watches" ###(Moose Stand) are constructed ###right on the border and many kills are moose bred and born in USA! ###Last year we had our best year ever (during bow and gun season our group harvested 5 moose) ###the year before 2 bulls (this was the year reserved for bulls only. ###
Anyway, i will be please to exchage on tactics such as calling tec hniques, salt licks etc...

I spend more time hunting moose than any other critter.
I'd hunt moose if I could ever draw a permit, when elk hunting we tend to see more moose than elk. A friends wife drew a cow tag this year so I'll get to help pack one out at least.

What caliber are you using for your moose hunt and when exactly are you going? Once you go on this hunt, you'll quickly realize how addicting moose hunting can be! http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smiley-biggrin-aqua.gif I've been hooked on moose hunting since I was little, and well, I still can't quite get enough! My back still hurts from the bull moose I shot last year, but last night I found myself out in the woods again around my place looking for another moose. No luck in seeing anything, though. Gonna try again tonight.

Well, I will have to put my two-bits into this thread. I live in North-Central British Columbia, and have been hunting moose since the early 1960's. Shot a trainload of moose over the years, and never did get my fill of it!! http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smiley-biggrin-aqua.gif Will be setting out shortly for our season here, which begins on September 10. Raised 4 kids on moose, elk and deer. Never cared much for farm beef if I could eat game.
Probably shot the majority of my moose with the '06, but used a lot of different chamberings over the years. I believe that moose hunting [as well as other animals] to be somewhat addictive, thank goodness! http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smiley-help-green.gif Regards, Eagleye.

Indeed it is. Moose hunting is really addicting. It's simply awesome, and each year seems to get better and better.
Good luck on your hunt.

In Norway, we have 5 or 6 types of dogs that are bred for this type of hunting... this is one of the most used metods to hunt moose in skandinavia..
