Where is the easiest place to get a moose license outside of Western Canada/Alaska.I don't have the money to go that far but I am now hooked on moose hunting and would like to go every year?

OK I have talked to an outfitter in Quebec who will sell me the license,lodge me,and let me hunt on my own. http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smiley-dancin-red.gif
Not to be to nosey but how reasonable was the price?

PennKid, I hunt Moose in Quebec as a non-resident. I am lucky that Quebec is my province of birth and most my family is still there. We hunt in eastern Quebec, just next to Maine USA. Which part of Quebec (area) will you be hunting. Which Outfitter? Have you checked on him? I'd hate to see you being screwed... .
Do you know that in Quebec, two tags are needed on each animal harvested? Hope you have a buddy going along... I can hardly imagine the outfitter providing the second tag...

no such thing as an easy draw...anywhere.
you can buy a hunt in canada.
just do a search for Moose Hunting Canada and see the list of outfits that pop up.
we hunted NB and Ont for years, lately haven't had the time to go.
yahoo/google/whatever will get you a baot laod of info to strt with, jsut check their references and talk to hunters that DID NOT get moose, see if they would go back.
figure $2500 to $4000 for a bull hunt.

Under a thousand.The guide provides the lodging but does not guide you in the woods.You are on your own there,and I like it that way.I have checked on him with someone who goes to his camp every year for fishing and bear hunting.He did mention it takes two tags for one moose,he was just informing me I need a second hunter,he did not say that he would not provide the second tag.He just said that each tag is $200.

Just a note - New Brunswick requires a draw.

Maniwaki is much more known for it's whitetail hunting. But I do have friends hunting moose up that way. If you give me the name of your outfitter, I will ask around. I live in Ottawa right accross from Hull Quebec which is about an hour &1/2 from maniwaki. The guy that hunts moose up that way, has a brother that used to guide in the Maniwaki region. If you want me to do some inquiries "firstname.lastname@example.org"

We have a draw here in North Dakota,if you get a draw,its a once in a life time deal,whether you shoot one or not... http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/thumbs-down-little.gif
Idaho usually has some leftover moose tags and 100% draw in some units. A bull moose draw tag is once in a lifetime if you tag one, a two year wait if you are unsuccessful in harvesting one, but the once in a lifetime is waived for leftover tags. The units with leftover tags are usually wilderness units requiring a long pack in/out and have low hunter success. But the better units still have pretty good draw odds compared to most other states. You need to buy the license for $128.50 nonrefundable to apply. Deadline is April 30.

The leftover tags in Idaho are cow tags.
Not all. There were a few bull tags leftover last year, but in low success wilderness units.

Dawg, really your correct, last year there were bull moose leftovers but only a few. The people who got those camped in line overnight to try and beat the POS computer at the vendors. From what the ladies in the F&G front office told me, the first three people in their line beat 800 other computers statewide and got four tags. Then the computer went blank and it was over, all in about two minutes.
How many tags were left total I couldnt say, but not many.
This year there won't be any left over tags because they changed the system and any tags that arn't drawn in the first round will be given back to the applicant pool and go to those people who did not draw the first time. Which is, by far more fair IMO, although I kind of enjoyed camping in line even though I went home tagless too. Good luck to all. http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smiley-wave-hello-yellow.gif
I do not understand how that is different than the way it was done last year. You get two choices. Everything fills in the first round on first choice picks, unless there are fewer first choice applicants than tags for a unit, then those tags go to the second round for second choice picks. Anything left after that is leftover. The regulations and applications are the same as last years, and already printed, so you still just get two picks. Of course, looking at last year's applicant numbers to project this year's is still a guess, perhaps everything will go in the first round. I am debating on what to do this year and still have not made up my mind. I would like to go moose hunting, but do not want too bad of a butt kicker. I do not have pack animals, so I will likely go for better road access with worse draw odds.

Ok here the deal, after the first drawing if there are any leftover tags a second drawing will be held. F&G will deciede next week, who will be able to enter the second drawing (ie. anybody or only those people who entered the first drawing and were unsuccessful. After that any tags still leftover will go first come first served.

I've drawn twice in Idaho, in '88 and then '95, hunted with my bow both times and couldn't tag a big one, but boy did I see a couple of big bulls. Been puting in for sheep in recent years.
The unit 10, 12, 17 moose hunts are easy to draw, access is tough, however once you're in good moose country, success is high.
When I decide to go, I'll hire the outfitter again to pack me in to the same spot as in '95. Me and a partner both drew in '95--he killed a 42''--with a rifle...
