Shiras Moose Hunting
hunting in Southeast Idaho
is extremely good with more moose spotted each
hunting day in Idaho than on most Canadian
Alaskan moose hunts. This is great moose hunting
country and Bearpaw Outfitters have seen well
over twenty moose in a single day during past
moose hunts. Best of all, success has been 100%
on bull moose hunts and cow moose hunts nearly
Bearpaw Outfitters have such high success on
their Shiras moose hunts is because they are
always watching for moose even while they are
hunting for other species. Bearpaw Outfitters
are consistently spotting moose throughout the
area and as a result they know the best places
to hunt moose each season.
Cow, or Combo Moose Hunts for multiple
species are offered. You can choose to stay
at the tent camp, the mountain lodge, or the
local motel during your hunt. Moose tags are
issued through a draw, and Idaho has the best
moose drawing odds anywhere in the lower 48
states. Your chance of drawing a moose
tag often ranges from 20% to 40%.
Location & Terrain
area is in F&G Units 73, 74, 75, 77, & 78, an
area over 50 miles across. Elevations range from
5,000 to 9,000 feet. There are rugged mountains
and canyons and there are also mountain basins
and benches with easier terrain. Please advise
Bearpaw Outfitters in advance if you have
bull moose taken have had antlers from 38” to
45” wide and there are some old bulls in this
area that are close to 50”. There’s not a high
probability of getting a Boone & Crocket bull,
but it’s not impossible either. If you're an
archery hunter there's a good chance of getting
a Pope & Young moose.
Seasons & Best Time
Moose season is open Aug 30 to November 23 for
any legal weapon. Archery hunting
is best during the rut in late September and early October when moose
can be called in close. Rifle hunting is
best in November after leaves fall and there’s snow for better
visibility, we see more animals.
Depending on which weapon and time of the
season you hunt, methods may
include glassing open hillsides and basins,
stalking, or sitting and watching water
holes or feeding areas where moose have been
& Physical Condition
opportunity has been 100% nearly every year on
the moose hunts. Most rifle shots have ranged
from 50 to 200 yards, archery shots range
from 10 to 60 yards. Physical condition is not
that important on this hunt.
Idaho has many
great hunting opportunities. Deer, elk, and
cougar tags are available over the counter with
no draw needed.
You can combine rifle or archery elk and deer hunting
with your moose hunt.
If you finish moose hunting early there are
forest grouse and coyotes in the mountains and
the local streams and reservoirs offer exciting
