Moving West takes a real head adjustment after being used to East coast deer so long. Are moose hunted too?
The last cow I shot was 307 pounds field dressed. About three times the size of a large field dressed deer. Bulls can be twice that big. All depends on the size of the critter.
Moose are hunted by drawing. Hard to get a tag and they charge a $5.00 non-refundable drawing fee so the state makes extra money charging you extra to pay them to do thier job. It's a good racket for the state. The odds of getting a tag are so much against you that you'd be better off to save your money and get together with some friends to hunt moose in Alaska. If you're lucky enough to draw a tag the success rate is fairly high though.
