    Moose Hunt

    I have the chance next year to pick any unit in the state. I will have my choice of units and would like to know what unit is the best for trophy moose? If you could pick one unit to hunt what one and why?

    I would hunt 1-4. Saw some nice bulls there 3 or 4 years ago when I was hunting deer. Im not sure how the wolves have effected it since then? Didnt see any wolves when I was there but not sure if it has changed since?

    Wow congrats on that tag! I've been hunting Unit 12 this year. It's steep and thick, although bulls taken there are usually better than average. I would pass on it due to difficulty in hunting and not seeing a lot of bulls.

    How do you already know that you can hunt any unit in the state for next year? What kind of tag is that?

    Just curious.

    Is this a real tag or a sneaky way of finding out the best moose units?

    Definitely hunt the SE corner of Idaho. Unit 70 is probably the best in the state. The unit almost every year runs a 40" average and usually closer to 45". Success is almost always 100%. A couple others to look at are 65 and 70.

    These units are no secret. Eastman's also rates them as "excellent" and they are the top picks by Hunting Fool as well.
    Grand Slam #1005 + 2: Dall (1986 Yukon), Fannin/Stone (1987 Yukon), Bighorn (1988 Colorado Unit S-26), Stone (1995 British Columbia), Desert (2001 Nevada Unit 161), Bighorn (2009 Wyoming Unit 5)
