WTG, Miles! Be careful with those brain worm-crazy moose back there. They get massive and mean.

What area in Maine? I have taken 3 in Seboomook region. but that was almost 30 years ago... maine moose is pretty much a done deal if you draw... trick is the heat after kill.... canning is a great way for long term storage too.. never really had to do more than drive and glass logging roads...

WMD 7.  It's the Rangley Lakes, Kennebago, parmachenee area.  It borders Northern NH and Canada.

The moose have been hit hard by the tick problem  along with a lung disease issue.  The populations aren't what they used to be, but we should still be able to find a good one...

The unit is outlined in red.  I'm from Errol (on the map), so it couldn't get any closer without being a NH moose tag. :tup:

I used to hunt deer in Colebrook, NH, right across the border. Great area. Best of luck. You should have a great story for us when you return.  :tup:

Nice!  I used to hunt just north of Errol, stayed in Wentworth Location, would drive out northeast into your moose area and then back into NH on paper company roads that were only accessible form the Maine side. 
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

Did you hunt in the Grant (west branch, dead diamond, horne brook areas)?  I've hunted in there and taken a few good bucks.  Did you stay with friends or rent a place?

Dad went out yesterday and spotted two bulls and one cow.  He also saw a nice buck and a bunch of grouse.  It should be a fun two weeks in October.

Yes, mostly west branch.  We rented a room in Wentworth Location, all I really remember is that there was a bar attached to the same building.

Awesome.  What weapon are you guys going to do it with?  I can't wait to see pictures on this thread.  Hardwoods in fall, swampland and big dark moose with maple antlers.

Congrats! That should be a blast.. I have a friend that guides out there and his clients have pulled some beautiful animals! I look forward to hearing about your adventure!
I am not opposed to golf, for I suspect it keeps armies of the unworthy from discovering deer.

Will you guys have deer tags too?

I am considering buying an archery deer tag, not sure yet.  Part of me wants to, but the other part says "just focus on the moose hunt".    There will definitely be lots of grouse cooked in camp and hopefully a good bull on the ground by day 6.

I keep thinking about this whole 6 day season thing... there's some pressure there.  Hopefully dad can handle it. :chuckle:

Dad will be using a 6.5 x 55 and I'm going to carry along a .32 special that was passed down to me.  I'm just close range backup. ;)

Nice. An old lever gun seems fitting for this adventure.

Oh this brings back painful memories.  I had a ton of points in the Maine Non-resident drawing for several years.  One year I moved and unbeknownst to me they send out there reminder cards 3rd class, which does not get forwarded.  When I called to find out why I had not gotten my postcard they said the deadline had happens a couple of days prior.  In Maine if you miss a year you lose all your points.  Ugh.......

Good luck, I hope you kill a big one!!!!
