Where to hunt Moose
Moose live in boreal forest regions across the northern part of the globe. The biggest, known as Alaska-Yukon, inhabit the Alaska and the Yukon into the Mackenzie Mountains of the Northwest Territories. The Chukotka moose from Kamchatka and Russian North-East is just as big. Moose in Canada’s other western provinces are classified as Western Canada moose, and those east of a line drawn across Ontario are Eastern Canada moose. The Shiras moose range extends through the Rocky Mountains south to Colorado and Utah; it has the smallest antlers of the North American moose. The European moose is hunted in Norway, Sweden, Finland, the Baltics, Poland, and Russia.
The most affordable moose hunts are to be found in Eastern Europe, Baltic countries, and the European part of Russia, where you can hunt a moose for $1,000-$1,500. Western and Eastern moose hunts in Canada typically go for $3,000-5,000, and moose hunting in Scandinavia is priced similarly. The incredible Alaska-Yukon and Kamchatka monster moose are the most expensive, as the price includes travel to remote areas. You can usually combine a moose hunt with a grizzly or sheep hunt, and such offers top the price range.

When to hunt Moose?
Trophy moose hunts usually take place in the rut, which happens in September-October in most parts of moose range. Meat hunts commonly take place later, in November-December, when the bull meat is less affected by hormonal surge of the mating period, and snow makes it easier to track a wounded animal. Post-rut hunts tend to be cheaper, but beware that moose shed their antlers at about the time of snowfall.

Most trophy hunts take place during the rut. Moose don’t form harems like other deer, but they bulls do challenge each other for dominance and territorial control. By imitating a rival bull hunters can get the moose in range but beware: during the rut bull moose are very aggressive, and many nations believe them to be more dangerous than even bears. North American moose hunts are usually conducted by spot-and-stalk, by calling, or a combinations of both methods. European moose hunts are traditionally conducted by driving, or using special trained dogs of local breeds who hold the animals in place by mock attacks, and give the hunters the hint of where it happens by barking. Stalking and calling are also practiced, though.
