So where do you.... find Moose?

What is this website about? Promoting moose education, conservation and ecology, improve your hunting and tracking skills with hunting tips, strategies and gear suggestions. Recipes for cooking are here too.

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.

Where do we find them? Personally, "I find them in beautiful BC!"

Where can YOU find them? Scattered across the northern hemisphere.

I can assure you, pretty much across the board, this content can be used anywhere.

Sure... there will be some slight variations in the timing of the rut (mating season) and the habitat locations they use from season to season -- I guarantee you, no matter where you are looking, this information will help you!

However; as I mentioned above, my experience in finding them is here, in British Columbia, Canada.

Population in British Columbia

  • 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.
  • 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.

Discover the Best Methods and Strategies to Locate Moose.

  • We have the information to help you... choose and use calls. We have exactly those calling tips, reviews & resources you need for making the best choice.
  • Knowing where and when to look in habitat is key. They are found in various areas at different times of the year.
  • Pictures are included throughout the site with several pages dedicated to photos. Share your pictures and stories with us... and others too.
  • You will learn many great hunting tips to help you find that elusive, four legged, six foot high, twelve hundred pound animal (550 kg), either through the lens of a camera or a rifle scope.

Ultimately... Improve Your Hunting Skills.

  • We will discuss hunting supplies and give you gear suggestions:
    What equipment or gear is required to take with you to camp? Hunting rifles, archery equipment for the bow hunter, optics and GPS’s and many more items are required to make your trip successful.
  • And we will share some hunting stories with you -- and give you an opportunity to share some with us. ;-)

May we suggest a few items for gifts ideas for the hunter or moose mania person in your life?

Guides and Outfitters

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.

Moose Antler Size

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.


Oh those recipes! Yum! We have shared quite a few and so have you, be sure to check them out and try them.

For the Recreationist:

Seeing and photographing any moose while adventuring in the wilds is a thrilling experience.

Many have been spotted by canoeing, kayaking and rafting the many lakes and rivers of the province.

Back country travelers also see them wandering and feeding in the wilderness meadows and boreal forests.

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.

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....This website 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.

Cool website, nice to see others that consider the moose as a majestic creature. We are going to park the quads this year and use the boat, get away from the others. Will let you know if it is a successful hunt.
