Utah Moose Hunting
hunting in Northern Utah
is extremely good.
This is great moose hunting country that has
produced some really nice trophies over the
years. Best of all, Bearpaw Outfitters are
experienced moose hunting guides with experience
hunting moose in three states. Success has been 100%
on bull moose hunts and cow moose hunts nearly
every season for almost twenty years.
The reason 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 and as a result they know the best places
to hunt moose each season.
Cow Moose, and Combo Moose Hunts for multiple
species are offered.
Location & Terrain
areas are in Northern Utah and 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.
bull moose taken by Bearpaw outfitters have had antlers from 38” to
51” wide. There’s not a high

archery hunter there is a good chance of getting
a Pope & Young moose when bow hunting.
Utah Moose hunting seasons are open September 12
to 22 and October 3 to 25 for any legal weapon.

fallen, especially if there’s snow on the ground for better
visibility while spotting.
Depending on what weapon and time of the
season that you choose to hunt, methods may
include glassing open hillsides and basins,
stalking on foot, calling, or sitting watching water
holes or feeding areas where moose have been
