    Just wondering where we could post questions for the hunters of our great beasts
    Moose and Caribou..

    I have a few friends in Quebec that I have known for many years and they ask(tell) me to stop in during season and bring all my equipment for Hunting. Man! I would love to go. they use
    quads to drive in to camp and use a boat to get to there main camp. but they drive a long way
    by road. My bigest fear would me going face down for my back..I would do it, but I would pay.
    They promised me if I were there in the Moose season I would bring home one.

    I can't get pictures to post for some reason. I will keep trying, never had an issue before.--edit--got it to work. How many pics and what sort do you want? I have had quite a few successful hunts with those two critters.

    If you can go on a moose hunt with your buddies helping you I highly recommend it. For those on the outside it is generally a once in a lifetime hunt. If you do it unguided the your success rate is very low unless you spend a ton of money and know where to go and how to judge moose size.

    The same goes for caribou but the success rates are much higher on self-guided hunts.

    Do some searches on this website and you will find a few posts about moose hunts in the Northern Territory.

    63" moose. Chased him three weekends in a row with my bow and never got close enough. I played a stupid cat and mouse game with him until he tired me out. When rifle season opened it was a quick kill at 20yds with the 45-70. I wish I had packed my bow as well that day!
