Wyoming Game & Fish License Application Deadline Moose | Feb 28

Best of the West hunt dates for moose run September 15th to October 31st, and the most successful hunting dates are always during the rut. The bulls are traveling during this time looking for cows, and moose are not quite as cagey in nature as elk. Attracting moose with calls is the most efficient means of hunting, and shots are commonly taken from under 30 yards. If you are an archer— this is a great hunt.

Shiras Moose Hunt Details

A Day In Camp

Your moose hunt begins at 3:00 am when we meet in the dining tent for a hearty breakfast, pack your lunch, and discuss the plans for the day. After breakfast, still, well before daylight, you and your guide ride out on horseback camp for a full day of hunting. Once you reach your destination, we spend most of the day glassing and locating rams with binoculars and/or a spotting scope. Our time and efforts are focused on areas where we have historically found and recently located mature rams in our scouting efforts. Once we spot your trophy bighorn, we plan our stalk carefully and hike to a vantage point to where you can make your shot.

Our Hunting Camp Locations

Our South Piney Creek drive-in camp lies within the boundaries of area 24, which allows us easy access and the ability to hunt one of the best Shiras moose areas in Wyoming. This area routinely produce bulls ranging from 27” to over 47” antler spread, each and every year.
