    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)

ID:	10569Thought I would let you guys know I got my moose tag unit 69-2. I will be hunting for 8 days end of Sep-Oct. Now that I got my tag I will tell you how. Idaho gives the first 5 veterans at the first of the year who are disabled choice of any tag they want. I was the 6th one to come across the desk and put on the waiting list. They have another program for kids if they don't use those tags the give them to the vets on the waiting list. On July 1st I got my tag best part it's free. I am so excited for this hunt and really thankful for states like Idaho who have programs like this. Sorry I could not say anything but wanted to keep competition for a tag to minimum.
