Moose hunting in Southeast
Idaho is extremely good with more moose spotted each
hunting day in Idaho than on many Canadian or Alaskan
moose hunts. This is great moose hunting country,
Bearpaw Outfitters usually see several moose per
day. Best of all, success has been 100% on bull moose
hunts and cow moose hunts nearly every moose season.
Bearpaw Outfitters have high
success on these Shiras moose hunts because they
always watch for moose even while hunting
other species, they know where to find the moose every season.

bull moose taken have had antlers from 38” to
45” wide but there are some old bulls in this
area that have exceeded 50”, our largest bull
taken was 52". Boone & Crocket bulls are rare
but not impossible. Archery hunters have a good
chance of taking a Pope & Young moose.
Seasons & Best Time
Bull moose season is open Aug 30 to November 23 for
any legal weapon. Archery
is best during the rut in late Sept or early Oct while moose
can be called in close. Rifle hunting is best in Nov, after
leaves fall and with snow there's better visibility so
hunters can be more selective.
Depending on weapon and time of the
season, methods may
include using a 4x4 vehicle for access, glassing hillsides and basins,
spot and stalking, watching water
holes, or watching known moose feeding areas.
