Idaho moose Unit 77

I am looking for some advice on where or how to hunt for moose in Idaho Unit 77. If you have ever hunted moose in this unit, or have seen moose while you were hunting something else in the unit, I would like to talk to you. If you would be willing to share some info, please send me a pm. Thank you.

Idaho moose Unit 77

I dont have any info on Unit 77, but I've got lots of info on Unit 69/66. Two weeks ago a friend of mine took his neighbor and his brother (both finally drew their moose tag after 40 years of trying). One of them shot a "OK" bull at 150 yards with 8MM. Dont know what kind of munition's he was shooting. Had to put two shots into him, but he dropped where he stood. He measured 32".

We've been going out doing a little elk hunting and looking for another bull for his brother, but all we are seeing is small fork horn's,cows and calfs. I saw 10 moose last Saturday.

My suggestion to you is to use Google Maps and survey the land a little or take a drive up there and get a good lay of the land. Find a high point and get up there about sun up and just glass ridge's until mid morning. Hell, you could even road hunt and prob spot a moose or two. Most of the moose I've been seeing come out about 8 and graze until about noon. I mean no disrespect to the creature, but moose are dumb in a sense they aren't pressured like elk and deer are and will usually walk out in the open and feed and stare at you as you drive by. try searching around creek bottoms too.

Sorry I don't have much info on that area. But moose are fairly easy to hunt... its finding that one bull is the tough part

Thanks for the reply. I killed a moose in late September. It was an enjoyable hunt. I hope I get to hunt another one some day.
