Re: Montana Moose

In Alaska a lot of people said that moose weren't hard to kill, it was just hard to convince them they were dead.

The link worked for me...no idea of the score but early in the season looking for a trophy I would pass, but thats not me. BANG! Moose steaks for EVERYONE.

    Troutslayer,
    Congrats on your draw. You're one of the lucky ones I was thinking about when I saw that I was unsuccessful. I have a few friends that have drawn the last few years and I'd be happy to pick their brains for you regarding tactics, location, etc. Near as I can remember, locations were Libby area, West of Flathead, Bighole, and Snowcrest/Ruby. PM me if you need any info. Good luck and bang a biggun!

    Re: Montana Moose

    Talking with my father in law the other night, we got on the subject of moose in Montana. He got one a few years ago and said that the most valuable piece of info he got was that a FWP biologist told him that if you want a biggun, you have to go higher than the bottoms which everyone knows about. Find the moisture up high and that's where the big boys hang out. He ought to know, his is one to brag about.

    I'd say he's small all the way around (antlers and body).

    Or maybe a big body and small antlers.

    He needs a little more age on him to get a bigger rack.

    But, I'm sorry to say (yeah right! he wouldn't get any older if I had the opportunity for a shot.

    He looks as if he's been groomed for the dinner plate.

    Also, nice video.

    Re: Montana Moose

    what time of year will you be hunting? calling season is a lot of fun. i've killed a doz or so and i don't think they're very hard to kill.my advice would be to just shoot them once in the chest. don't blast em 5 times cause it won't make much difference in how long it takes to fall over.the best place to shoot them is the upper neck or head. it's a very large target,doesn't mess up meat, and the meat is fantastic! learn how to call them. your family will get a kick out of your practicing.

    moose draw

    congrats on the draw. up here in Canada we get drawn every 2yrs. The cow moose I shot 2yrs ago was shot with a 270 - 130g Ballistic tips. I nailed her at 135 yds. Took her heart out. Biggest cow moose I ever shot. after gutting her,we weighed her on a truck scale -814 lbs. Not the size of the gun but where you put it. Good luck.

    I'm really stoked about the upcomming season. I'm going to see how 200 gr. Trophy Bonded Bearclaws (Federal Factory) shoot out of my gun. I haven't had much luck with them in lighter weights so a trip to the range will tell. Season starts the 15th.
