Lots of sour grapes this time of year! Since I too put in for that tag, but will probably never get drawn, more than happy to share where I have seen moose. If it was me I would spend some time off of Bartlette Rd. just East of the ski lodge off of Flowery Trail Rd. There is a lot of area to hunt in there and I have seen several moose back in there. It's a good place to start. Good luck and congratulations.

Not sour grapes I help alot of guys. (and have an awesome tag this year) but you did not get to read the post that was erased and I dont agree with just tellin someone exactly where to go, what gun to bring, how high to aim, what a moose looks like, how to skin, where to take the meat, and have a guy say I will not share any meat and just want info.   Oh maybe a little bit of sour grapes. :chuckle:  On a further note I think your road is gated now.

That road is open. Just came back from there. If there is a moose standing on that rd. It deserves to be shot. It's a big area back there and going to be a lot of work to find one. It's a good starting point though. I would have IM'd that info like I have to I don't know how many other guys on this site, but getting tired of seeing the nasty comments to a guy asking for a little help. Thought that's what this site was for.

I think what benhuntin was getting at is you should go introduce yourself, do some research and contribute to the site before just posting.......help me, I got a tag and I dont know anything about the area, as one of your first posts.

I on the other hand was just trying to tell you that my buddy would help you for a little meat.  I understand that you want 600lbs of meat for yourself, but thats a lot of meat to pack by yourself. Believe me, if its hot and you shoot a moose very far from the road, you will wish you had help otherwise you will slowly realize all of your meat is spoiling as you make trip after trip trying to get it out. 

This isnt a deer and its not going to be two trips out and your done. If you are by yourself, you will probably make eight or more trips.  Anyways enough with my ranting because I dont know anything about that area, so I cant help you out. 

Good luck, shoot straight and enjoy it because it should be quite the experience!

Not sure I could have passed on that first one. What you took is pretty nice looking too.

I spend a lot of time in 117. Would love to get that tag someday.

If you're willing to pack out a moose about 4+ miles in, I swear you can get one bigger than the ones in the earlier post. :)

Don't think I could have passed up either of those moose.  Might have to do some hiking in there to see what possibilities exist before I put in for that hunt.

I am on both sides of the spectrum here.  I think that just asking for help is a little tacky but some people need to understand that drawing an OIL tag is not easy.  If someone that draws the tag lives eight hours away from the area, how can you fault them for not knowing it like the back of their hand like you may.  I posted before that my neighbor has put in for 18 years and nothing.  He is in his late 60's and more than likely not in a position to do a ton of pre scouting, especially considering he may never draw.  Anyone that draws can never put in again, for gods sake help a little or if you dont want to then dont. Either way get off his case and let the ones that can help do as they wish.

Back in the day we didn't have the internet. I look at it as one of my tools for scoutting. Hell the first time I came on this site was when I drew my 49 moose tag. I put my daughter and I in for Raymond cow tags, never been down there. And wouldn't you know it, we have two tags and yes I asked and got some good info on here. Thanks guys, it's lots of fun to draw a tag and part of the fun is doing your research.
