Moose results?

We must not have many northeast guys on here, cause I can't seem to buy a report from a succesful hunter.  And I know they are being shot.  My cousin got a small bull in maine, and I have a couple buddies who got them in New hampshire and Vermont.  Anyone out there cashing in on the swamp donkeys?

I'm TRYIN'!!!!

I've been in the woods from dark 'til dark every day. Haven't seen one on the hoof yet. I found two sets of fresh tracks today...both sets were cow and calf. The two young bulls I found earlier haven't been shot yet. I just can't find 'em. I heard of two moose being checked in at the Durham NH check station for unit M. A 450# cow and a 650# 7-point bull. We also found a gutpile in Chester that wasn't reported in Durham. Might have been checked in at Hillsboro. That's 3 out of 10 permits filled for unit M by mid-day Tuesday. I didn't check with them today. Tomorrow's another day. Gotta go to bed. 4:30 will be here before I know it.

Lost of moose are dead and

Lost of moose are dead and more to come. But some hunters are having a hard time. We have a huge population here in Aroostook. 

If you ever draw a permit hope for WMD #6/#11..........no problem!!

Can non-residents put in for

Can non-residents put in for these tags? What are the draw odds and what kind of dinaro are we talking? I am not convinced that I am ever going to draw a moose tag out here so it might be worth a shot looking into others places. It sounds like you have quite a few moose running around over there. Good luck to anyone with a tag.

Non residents can put in for

Non residents can put in for the Maine tags, as well as New Hampshire and Vermont.  Maine has roughly 300 Non-res tags, and the price depends on how many entries you want to purchase.  This is kind of unique.  If you do get drawn, the permit plus out of state license is just over $500 in total.  Success rates are really good.  Here is a good link for Maine explaining it all.

http://www.maine.gov/ifw/licenses_permits/lotteries/moose/index.htm

Vermont draw rate is anywhere from 3-4%, and the fee is around $500 total also, maybe slightly below.  New Hampshire is around $600 for the tag and license, with draw odds at 1 in 67 for non-residents last year.

I am going to put in for Vermont next year and try my luck.  We'll see, I guess.

That's cool.  Nice Bull.  If

That's cool.  Nice Bull.  If I did draw in Maine, I'd have my cousin and her husband to both help out.  She got a 756 pounder a few years ago, and her husband got a small bull this year.  He used to be a bear guide, so he has alot of spots where he'd run into moose too.

Plus, my Uncle delivers parts all over Northeastern Maine, from Hodgdon up to Van Buren, Fort Fairfield, etc., so he is always seeing and photographing moose.

So i got the hookup, now I need a tag..... Yes
