Idaho Shiras Moose Hunts

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.

Location & Terrain

Moose hunting areas include F&G Units 73, 74, 75, 77, & 78, an area over 50 miles across. Elevations range from 5,000 to 9,000 feet and terrain varies from rugged mountains and canyons to more casual high mountain basins and lower elevation benches.

Trophy Quality

Most mature 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.

Hunting Methods

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.

Shot Opportunity

Shot opportunity has been 100% nearly every year on the moose hunts. Most rifle shots have ranged from 50 to 300 yards, archery shots range from 10 to 60 yards. Physical condition is not that important on this hunt.


Additional Game

Combination hunts are offered. Deer, elk, cougar, and wolf tags are available over the counter with no draw needed and coyotes and grouse require no additional license. Hunting licenses also include 3 days of fishing, there is some great trout fishing in local streams and reservoirs.

Licensing & Hunter Ed

Moose tags are issued through a draw, you must apply in April. Idaho has the best draw odds of any state in the lower 48 states. Your chance of drawing a tag ranges from about 10% to 100% depending on the hunt. Call or email Bearpaw Outfitters to get on the mailing list. You will be advised when and how to apply. The total cost for a non-resident to apply is about $2270. Approximately $2100 is refunded if you are not drawn. Lower license rates do apply for youth hunters. Hunters born after Jan 1, 1975 are required to have Hunter Education to apply.
