Moose Hunting questions

8 posts in this topic

Does anybody know if it would be possible to hire a guide to moose hunt? If a person were to win the lottery would it be leagle to hire a guide to assist in the hunting of moose in Minnesota.

Just a hypathetical question for all you legal eagles.

Nope, it's not legal. Sorry. The only people who can assist in taking your moose are those who were in your party application.

How about if someone not in your party came with to share the experience and help pack it out, is that ok? I know guys who would want to come with just for the experience of a trip to the boundary waters to see a moose hunt.

There shouldn't be a problem there. How would you prove who is or isn't hunting? I'm planning on bringing some friends that aren't in my party that have no intention to hunt. My glass-half-full mind says I will need lots of paddlers to get my moose out smile

Hiring a guide is a whole different deal.

No on the guide. Although there is a fellow from up North who appears at the mandatory clinics and demonstrates moose calling and offers various moose info. I believe he offers instruction, and I ran into him with a group of moose hunters several years back. Perhaps he was there in an "advisory" role and not as a paid guide.

When I drew my tag, my longtime hunting partner (not on the tag) joined me for the trip, and videotaped the proceedings. We were pretty careful about how we operated, so he could not be seen as "assisting in the hunt".

They will explain all of that at the clinic. They are very good at the clinic about going over various laws and situations.

I was going to say that exact thing. You'll hear it all at orientation.

People can not assist you in taking the moose if not on the tag they can not even padddel the canoe while you hunt once the moose is down you can have anyone you want help but they can't help in the taking of the animal.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
