Where do we find Moose? Personally, "I find them in beautiful BC!"
Where can YOU find them? Scattered across the northern hemisphere.
You can take the information
I share with you on this website and go to any area where there is a population and use it
to help find them. It is my wish for every person who wants to, to go
out and be successful in their searches.
I can assure you, pretty much across the board, this material can be used anywhere.
Sure... there will be some slight variations in the timing of the rut and the habitat locations they use from season to season -- no matter where you are looking this information will help you!
However; as I mentioned above, my experience in finding them is here, in BC.
We are thinking that a new look for the website is in order. An image that is clean and to the point. Is this it?

In British Columbia, Canada, populations have expanded across the province and are found mostly in the boreal forested areas. They are almost entirely absent from all coastal regions and can be found in the mountains and valleys except for the driest of areas like the Thompson and Okanagan regions.
In British Columbia over 70 percent of the moose population lives in Northern BC, with a population of about 170,000 animals. The balance of the population are scattered in pockets throughout the southern sections.

Bull in velvet... note the white fringes to the velvet.
This is an unusual sight for most of us!
Finding a guide or outfitter can also be a challenge, see our page on how to choose a hunting guide to see a number of things to consider before deciding.
Antler Size always leads to deep discussions regarding the size of an animal, what is its age and for some... will it make the record books? Only the males of the species have antlers and they can grow to be quite large with the largest spread of an adult being almost 6 feet across.
Some hunters are looking for trophy size animals, while others are looking for some tender meat to eat for the winter. Are you a trophy hunter? What drives you to hunt for trophies? (See the world record page for details) We’ll take a look at these arguments and also share our point of view.

Seeing and photographing any moose while adventuring in the wilds is a thrilling experience. Many have been spotted by canoeing and rafting the many lakes and rivers of the province. Back country travelers also see them wandering and feeding in the wilderness.
If you do not find the information you are looking for, please use the Ask-An-Expert form and I will post the information you want as soon as possible. I am trying to make this the most comprehensive site about moose, and with your help and suggestions we can do this.
I have been hunting for over forty years and moose for over twenty. My partners and I have combined hunting experience of over 150 years... on this website we will share it all with you!

We hunt with the idea in mind that a successful trip is not measured just in the amount of meat we put in the freezer, it’s also about the experience, time with friends and family, being outdoors, breathing the fresh air and the anticipation of seeing wild game....All-About-Moose is exactly that.
An all-inclusive place to find information regarding the species Alces alces. They are majestic animals that often do not get the respect they are due. I hope you find this site informative and if you have any tips, ideas, recommendations... do feel free to contact me.
Also: please participate in our Moose-Hunting Rifle Survey. Voice or ask for an opinion and find out the most popular rifle. We recently ran a survey, check out the results.

I have a question about hunting moose in the late season:
What is the best approach for hunting in the late season? After the rut where do all the bull moose go?
