Moose Hunting Tips by Jennifer Vashon Wildlife Biologist
➡ Prior to the moose season, sight in your rifle.
➡ Moose often appear closer than they are, because of their large size. Keep this in consideration when estimating the distance to the moose before you shoot.
➡ Be prepared to get your moose out of the woods. Rope, come-alongs, pulleys, a chain saw, and waders can be indispensable on your hunt.
➡ Quartering your moose will make it easier to haul and will reduce the risk of your meat spoiling.
➡ Skinning your moose, or filling the chest cavity with ice, will also reduce the risk of your meat spoiling.
➡ A 30-30 can be used for shooting a moose, but it doesn-t have the range of larger guns. A larger caliber gun (308, 30-06, 7 or 8mm) may improve your success and reduce the possibility of wounding a moose.
