Moose

There was never a season for them, now some of the zones have a draw but limited tags like 25 bulls and 50 cows the farmers hate them!

Do you know the prices off

Do you know the prices off hand of what it would cost for a non resident to come up to Canada to shoot a moose? Also do they require that you hire a guide or does that depend on the area?

Moose

All Non-Canadian residents must be guided here in Saskatchewan and as for moose the zones  are in the northern part of the province that is the land of bush and muskeg  and hard hunting but with a outfitter he would have all the equipment and know the area. I believe a non-res tag is around $350 and what ever the outfitter would charge, I would have to think it would all be a package deal.

Not a lot of Non- Canadians  come for moose but for the whitetail, bear and water fowl you can’t find a better place in north America to hunt!

I personally think our

I personally think our northern moose don’t get to be giants due to the vegetation there the farther south (or way north) you go the better for the moose, I’m not saying there’s not big moose just not as many and very hard to hunt.

 As far as whitetails go you can’t beat the size of these deer, you will shoot one that you think its rack is going to go around 140-150 and next thing you know you have just killed a 170+ buck there bodies are massive.

With bears a outfitter will put you in a stand and on any given day you’ll see from 1 to 20 bears and your bound to shoot a 18-20incher.

The water fowl here in the fall is insane I can’t even begin to explain how many birds are packing up heading south and we are in a area that is a major flight path and a feeding stop  for mallard duck, snow geese, and huge Canadian geese!

This is all a crock

This is all a crock perpetrated by Saskatchewan tourism. All the big white tails have been shot - the bear are small and moose are photo-shopped.:rotest1

 

Everyone save your money....stay home or go to Manitoba or Alberta.

 

Ground Hog....Shhhhhh!!!!Wink

Everyone one wants a good 50

Everyone one wants a good 50 incher. I think about your typical whopper 30inch mulie, invision that imbetween the paddles and see how much he sticks out. If he's got 5-10 inches past that invisible spread I'd be shooting.

Count the palm points if you

Count the palm points if you have 10 on each side it is probably 48" to 50"  12 on each side it is probably 60 + .   Make sure you are looking at the palm points and not the brow tines. The longer and defined the better.  If you are looking to take a trophy don't just look at big look for good structure and conformation. Large symetrical palms with good defined points brow tines the same.

field judging

I know this is an old post but I have to agree with the previous posters.  If you get a chance to shoot any legal moose, take it.  You might not get another chance.  That said, you sometimes HAVE to judge a moose to make sure that it is legal.  In some parts of Alaska, a non-resident can't shoot a bull unless he has an antler spread over 50 inches (there is also a brow time requirement to meet).  In that case, the guide for judging antler size is that a bull moose's head is about 10 inches across the eyes.  So he needs the width of his head in antler on each side to meet the 50 inch minimum width.  That is my one and only moose judging tip.  I gotta look into these saskatchewan moose hunting trips....maybe I can find an outfitter that might be near affordable after I factor in teh travel costs.....hey - I can HOPE! Good luck all you moosehunters that have tags to fill this year! Mike
