I want to enter the lottery for moose permits in Maine for the moose season of 2005, but I have absolutely no idea how to go about it. If anybody has any information, it would be of tremendous help. Thanks for the help.
Now here is another tid bit of info fo you. I tell all that I talk to to apply for the area just up above Rt.9. This is the Downeast area of Maine. This area has only been open to moose hunting for about 10 years (maybe a bit less).
There are a lot of moose in this area of Maine also. Most guys think that they have to go way up north to get a moose. But the thing is to me anyways is that they are a bit more skiddish up north because they have been hunted more. But like I said this is my 2 cents worth. It is up to you guys what you want to do.
If you have any more questions I will try and help all I can.
I am from Philadelphia. Its tough to find folks who are into this sort of thing around here, so its a good thing that I can communicate with people of the same interests over the internet. I will be sure to keep you up to speed if I am drawn, and thanks again for the help.
Try to put your tree stand in a tree with plenty of background cover, keep the prevailing winds for that time of the year to your face, and take care of those pesky squeaks and creaks your stand may have developed while sitting in the shed. A good treestand lube can be made by heating petroleum jelly until it reaches a liquid form. Some hunters have reported success by including a cover scent in this mixture before applying it to their stands.
