Ill never be able to afford a moose hunt nor do I want to pay and take my chances on applying for a out of state tags year after year .  So I figured why not buy a shed, I built the base out of black walnut , stained it and got it hung up on the wall . I think it looks good keeping my bucks company.. oh and we made sure we left  room for more deer antlers too .

Best $5k I ever spent. And that was just the outfitters. Would go again in a heartbeat! Can't apply again for 2 more years I think. Maine is awesome! 9a974422a4f6d6aecf51314cdb290f84.jpg372bd72d50a8069eee94f94e0dfd709a.jpg

A moose hunt was a life long dream...specifically a guided fly in hunt. After years of stashing extra cash away and selling off some unappreciated firearms, I was able to go to Newfoundland. Amazing.  Weather was very bad, but I was lucky enough to take a young bull with palmated antlers. Three years later I went back..(sold more guns!). 

An even better time...better weather except it was hot, and moose do not liike hot. I shot a big cow, and was very pleased, but left with even more memories....finding indian petroglyphs, walked up on caribou, had a chance (and passed) at the biggest bear I will ever see in my life...

Your antler is cool, but it is worth the effort to go.

Only 3, got lucky! I actually won a cow tag but the outfitters I went with helped me swap for a bull tag with a maine resident. That was an extra $1500, worth it!

We are looking to buy our own chunk  of hunting land in the very near future so that is priority right now. If not for that I could afford it , but as I said applying for the tag year after year  is the big hurdle as I’m not a lucky person .

Someday for me too I will hunt moose in northern Maine.  Like Rob said, I too am saving for a big purchase that sets priority ahead of Maine hunting.  I honestly would be thrilled to simply tag along on a moose hunt, I would film it for the hunter.

I apply every year for VT, NH and ME, you can’t look at it as a hurdle it’s a donation to a great cause with an awesome reward! It’s like a 50-50 with a way better reward. A friend of mine drew a VT tag 5 yrs ago and I called for him. It was the best week I have ever spent in the woods and I couldn’t even carry a gun nor was he successful.
