If you hunt for a week there's a pretty good chance you'll get a moose. My deer partner was a sub-permittee for an older gentleman about 4 years ago. Got the area west of Rte 1 North of Houlton. The guy with the permit would only hunt from 9-1 every day. Needless to say they didn't get a moose and we torment our friend to this day about it.

We do guarenteed hunts in Zones 5,6,10, and 11. This isnt a guarentee you will score a moose. Its a guarentee that you will have the opportunity. We can't shoot for you!!! Seen alot of hunters who fail to sight in their rifles before a moose hunt. They tell me that they shot it last fall and it shoots fine, plus they always say, "how do you miss a moose standing broad side"? After a clean miss, I am now asking them the exact question.

Granted a moose is a large target, one would think that in order to save some time and effort that a hunter would check their gun and try to make a good clean shot. Its not like dragging a deer out of the woods.

I've never been drawn before, but I always have high hope. My preferences are in this order: Zone 3, where I live, then 6, 2, 5, 1, 4, then anywhere else, in no particular order. I've hunted as a sub-permittee twice, we scored once.

On another note, I haven't seen any moose up here this spring and I find that unusual as we live in the woods. We still have snow on the ground, so I suspect they'll start showing up soon. I know there's been lots seen just south of here.
