Idaho Moose GMU 17

Hello all,

I was lucky enough to draw a moose tag this year in Idaho for the Selway Bitterroot area in GMU 17. the dates run August 30 – November 23, 2010. I was wondering if you guys/gals ever see moose outside the drainages, rivers, or lakes wandering around the heavy trees? Or I should spend my time getting wet looking for those ‘’little’’ guys handing out. Also was wondering when they rut in Idaho? If you have any other info feel free to throw it in as well

Re: Idaho Moose GMU 17

i just got back from a bear hunt in unit 17. i was hunting on freeman peak which is above moose creek. while i did not see any moose up on the mountain i did see about 20 moose down on moose creek including two pretty nice bulls in the valley between the north and east forks of moose creek. its quite a long ways to that valley (about 12 miles) but the valley apears to be pretty easy to hunt since it is mostly grass with trees here and there.

Thanks for the info. I'm going to dig out my maps when I get home from work. How did the bear hunt go?

Re: Idaho Moose GMU 17

My brother and i both took good bears despite the erratic weather. We would go to bed sweating like crazy and wake up the next morning with 6 inches of snow. But its always nice to get into the backcountry. i hope you get your moose!
