My son drew a Cache Utah Moose permit! Now the work begins. I sure would be appreciative of some pointers on where to focus in the unit. We will be hunting for most of the entire season. Any help would be great.
Wish I could help you but I know nothing about the area (not even where it approximately is). I suspect the standard strategy of: find water, find cows wait for/call bull would work; its practically a universal approach to moose hunting regardless of the area.
If you've never hunted moose before - be mindful of the effort required to retrieve a 1200lb animal. Come-alongs, quad-winches, a boat etc etc will be VERY useful. A lot of people under estimate this and it ruins what should be the hunt of a lifetime.
First make sure your gun is safe, remove the bolt and clean your barrel from the chamber to the end of muzzle. Clean the barrel using butchers bore shine until a patch comes out white. Run a total of 5 separate patches soaked with denatured alcohol through the bore and let dry for 30 minutes. Insert a cleaning rod with a jag and a dry patch into the neck of the chamber. Make sure it will stay there through the next process. Now using another cleaning rod, install a patch that has been coated...
