We had some of the worst weather I have seen for years in September 2018. We had record hot temperatures throughout the season followed by days and days of rain. We were late picking up many of our hunters due to so many days we couldn’t fly, but still came up with a 60% success rate. The hunters took very good care of their meat so, even in such bad conditions, we didn’t have spoiled moose. Once more, we had several repeat hunters that passed up on bulls looking for a monster and we had groups of 2 hunters that only wanted one moose. We had 6 groups that were 100%. The hunting was slower than normal and remained that way through the season. We had a lot of rain and high water which makes hunting tough, but still had a good success rate. This shows how strong the moose population is in our area. If we get a normal weather season, it’s hard to tell how high our success would have been. Moose numbers have been steadily increasing for the past eight years in our area. We are also seeing a large number of young bulls which means we have a very healthy population. If a trophy moose is on your bucket list, now is the time to book a hunt! I have been hunting this area since 1989 and it is the best moose hunting, I have ever seen.
