Kind of went like I thought it would. The deer tag I apply for usually hits every other year. Palouse Late buck, I did draw that so I'm happy for the most part. Didn't draw a late fall turkey though, bummer! No moose or elk AGAIN.
This is my first post here and what a good one to start with. It's been 9 years of applying and I drew a tag. Now my home work starts. I'm from the area I'm going to hunt, but I moved away 31/2 years ago. 438 miles to go scouting is a long hall, so I'm taking a month off of work to hunt, I've got the ok and have the time on the books. I'm going archery first, I've call elk, so moose shouldn't be too hard, I just need to learn how. I'll take a riffle if it draws to a end and I need a kill. I do have a question, well a 308 180 gr. be big enough for moose?
This is my second post. I was lucky enough to draw the Selkirk Moose tag. I was wandering if anyone out there has drawn this tag in the past? Or if not , what about any whitetail hunters that hunt this area? I have talked to the biologist for this area and I also have talked with a guy that was successful last year on a 50" bull. I am looking to add new info to what I have already learned and would love to share it. Any help would be great!
Out here in Colorado, and in the units that I haunt, it is a tricky game to figure out how far to pack in on a rifle hunt. You want to get away from the masses that have moved game away from the roads but might want to stay close enough that you are taking advantage of the animals forced movements. There is no universal distance but I like the 1.5 to 4 mile range for day hunts where I am not planning on bivying out. This keeps you in that productive buffer zone where the animals are really...
