i know i missed the 2003 tag draw so what are the dates to submit? does your request stay on file or do you have to apply yearly?what comes first, the tag or the guide? north carolina moose hunting sucks LOL.
Hey billybob sorry I have not got back to you sooner about this. You do have to apply yearly for a permit.
Then if you get picked you get a guide.
If you apply, apply for the downeast area above Rt.9. Most people apply for the north part of Maine and it has been hunted hard.
Rt.9 has only been open for a few years and there are as many moose in that area as there is any where.
Over the years I have seen several elk and deer hides left in the woods by hunters and I have to wonder why they do this? I fully understand and agree about getting the hide off the animal as soon as possible to cool the meat, but why not pack out the hide with you and use it? As far as I know there are no state laws that require you to take the hide home, but to me why waste such a beautiful part of the animal? Some might think they have no use for the hide or it costs too much to tan....
