Under 4k including license.

Under 4k including license. Although they have them available this is not considered a trophy hunt. The potential is there but not to be expected.

Going with the high success and having a good time. Plus the logistics of getting a moose out on your own is something to be considered.

Of course travel, tax and other things will add a bit more.

Cost vs Sucess

Knowing it is a cabelas hunt I know it's not a cheap hunt what range are you talking. I am trying to weigh an alaskan drop camp hunt vs one like you are planning?

I looked at a drop camp, so did Wade, and decided that a guided hunt was more economical in Newfoundland. The odds of success played a big part in our decision due to the cost and travel expenses.

We are talking about Alaska for a deer hunt.

I went to newfoundland this

I went to newfoundland this year killed the only moose I saw.it wound up being the second biggest ever killed at that outfitter.we were there the middle of October the rut was pretty much over and it was warm.made for tuff hunting with not a lot of action.but they had found a spot two days prior that they had never hunted and it was full of fresh sign.the 30 min before I shot it I got to hear all kind of calling it was very exilirating.my buddy wound up getting a caribou the last hour of the hunt.we had a good time the food was great and the guides worked hard.just so you know everything up there is high priced.good rubber boots and good rain gear are a must

Congrats!!!

Congrats turk870 on your moose and your buddy's caribou.

I broke down and bought a raincoat. The last time it rained here in the desert I was out of state so I haven't needed any rain gear yet. I paid some guy at the bus stop $10 for his bright yellow rain slicker. Funny thing was he didn't have any clothes on underneath it so I had to give him some clothes too and then wore the raincoat home.

For some reason, I have yet to figure out, people were giving me funny looks and moving away from me as I rode the city bus home wearing that raincoat. Oh well, it's hanging in the closest for my impending trip to hunt moose.
