I have been fortunate enough to draw a 2009 Idaho nonresident moose tag in unit 29 (also includes units 30, 30A, 37A, and 58). This tag is extra special as my father drew a 2009 Idaho resident moose tag in the same unit.
We are both new to moose hunting and any assistance you could provide would be extremely helpful. My father grew up in the area but hasn't hunted in these particular units for a number of years. I live in Washington and am doing my best to research the area in advance of my arrival. Some of the areas I could use some information/direction on are:
Any general suggestions on particular units/areas and the best timing for my hunt (September - November)? I am not asking for any "special" hunting areas but rather general help on more productive locations would be greatly appreciated.
Any help on how to judge spread on a Shiras moose? My goal is to shoot a good scoring bull moose (e.g. 40+ spread), if possible.
Any other help you think I should know/consider?
Thanks and God bless!
