Washington Moose Hunting
are the most experienced moose hunting guides
and outfitters in Washington. All of Washington's Shiras Moose hunting units are
Northeast Washington, right where Bearpaw
Outfitters have conducted hunts
for over 30 years. Past hunters have taken some
very nice moose and success is almost always
100% because Bearpaw Outfitters live in the
local area, they know
the moose areas extremely well, and they are
always scouting throughout the year.
Moose licenses are
issued through a lottery-draw. Purchase the moose application and
then apply for the specific units over the phone or
online. If you draw then you purchase the moose
permit and tag. Two moose
permits are also issued by raffle tickets on the Fish & Wildlife website
and one governor's permit is sold at auction to
the highest bidder. If interested in the governor's
tag Bearpaw can assist you with bidding.
Hunter Education is required in Washington if you were born
after Jan 1, 1972.
for Permits Apr 20 to May 20....Three
Huckleberry, Selkirk, 49 Degrees, Mt Spokane,
Kettle, and Hangman are all great units, Bearpaw Outfitters have
hunted all these units and know them well.
