September and October Hunt Dates
Maine’s state wildlife biologist estimates the Canadian moose population between 60K and 70K animals, and with only roughly 3,000 tags being issued annually, mostly via lottery draw, this makes hunting moose in this great state unsurpassed. Average bull moose typically stretch the tape between 40” – 55” and top end bulls can be as large as 60” … “with all the rigging”!
WTA TAGS represents a first class outfitter in the most productive units of norther, Maine. The hunting style is typically done by calling the moose into range, and then field judging him to be sure he is the caliber of bull you are looking for. Calling moose sounds easy, but there is much more to it than just calling. Call placement, wind direction, scent, sight and sound, all factor into a successful set-up. When done correctly the sights and sounds of a trophy bull moose snapping branches and grunting, on his way to the call, is beyond exhilarating.
Depending upon the zone drawn, our outfitter has the accommodations in-place. For hunters drawing Zones 2, 3 or 6 you will have the choice of staying at a beautiful historic hunting camp right on Eagle Lake or being closer to town and staying at a nice bed and breakfast with cell and Wi-Fi services available. For the lucky applicant drawing zones 1, 4 or 5 our outfitter will set-up an outpost, four star, tent camp facility with fresh linens and a hot shower. Fine cuisine is served daily from each camp, and features Delmonico steaks and fresh cold water Maine lobster during your stay.
