Shiras Moose Hunting in the Bighorn Mountains of Wyoming
The Big Horn Mountains of Wyoming offer some of the best Shiras moose hunting in the United States. The quality of bulls is unmatched and population is strong in their limited quota areas 34 and 42. There are no wolves or grizzly bears to worry about in this area. This outfitter generally utilizes horses to find the big bulls in the back country and wilderness areas. Opportunities at Boone & Crocket quality animals are not uncommon. Their moose guides have years of experience in this area and with days and weeks of scouting for all the different species in these areas these outfitters have specific bulls on the hit list each year if you are lucky enough to draw the permit.
Accommodations are at a newly renovated lodge in 2016, and with private bedrooms and home cooked meals this is a top shelf destination for any hunter looking to harvest a trophy Shiras moose. Odds to draw this moose are tough, but with a permit available each year in the random drawing you have the same chance to draw as the next guy.
