Moose Hunting – the size is important

Whoever said that "size is not important", obviously he was not a hunter of elves. The largest reindeer family, Los is moving from North America through North Canada and Alaska. Like many things, the size is relative. All the elk are huge, about the size of a purebred horse, but even among giants, there are differences.

Here's a short review of the bad and what you need to know before you go.

1. Shiras or Wyoming Moose:

The smallest of sub-types of losers, these giants are spreading to the north of the United States and South Canada. The record book of Shiras will have a sports weight of 186 "or more Boone & Crockett.

This is one of the heaviest hunt for procura, since most of the areas where these hunts are hunted are limited input units. Make sure you know the rules before booking hunting equipment.

2. Canadian Los: t

Middle brother in the Losov hierarchy, this moose moves from British Columbia in the west to Newfoundland in the East. Larger than Shiras loses, a record Canadian loser book will carry a mass of horns in the total amount of 220 "or more Boone and Crockett.

A rich number and guaranteed tags in many Canadian provinces, this is a great animal that needs to continue. Expect that you pay $ 5,000 to $ 8,000 for an eight-day hunt with quality equipment.

3. Alaska-Yukon Moose:

As his name suggests, these northern giants wander with tundra from Alaska to Yukon. The big daddy of all the losers, the horns of the horns will go over 70 "and the total mass of horns over 250" Boone & Crockett.

Expect to pay more for these guys. The cost of quality Alaska Losers ranges between $ 10,000 and $ 15,000. This will be a great investment and once in a lifetime trophy.

This is a brief overview of the bad and what you can expect from each species you are hunting. Talk to your hunting supplier and guide to make sure that you are hunting for the species you are looking for.

Remember, time in the field is a gift, enjoy!

Until the next time, Happy Hunting.
