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.

    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
    • Concrete. Way easier to plow. My parents have a gravel driveway WORST THING EVER! Impossible to snow blow because of all the rocks always wet and muddy. Sure it's cheaper but in the long it's not worth the cheaper price. 
    • I have used a Lowrance XOG (no longer available) on my boat and on my snowmobile for years now with no problems with cold or speed of tracking. I use a Lakemaster card for Minnesota lake for fishing, a Navionics card for coverage in Canada and LOW for winter and summer fishing, and a Red Pine snowmobile trail map for riding. Have ridden at 30 below without any problem with the touchscreen, it is hooked up to sled power, so it probably is getting some heat, and I put it inside my jacket when I get off. I recommend that you do a little research on the available chips for where you are going because different manufacturers use different chips. My use pretty much limits me to Garmin, and expect to pay couple to $300+ for chips for where I travel.
    • So are you saying what happened to me did not happen ? We not talking about a 4 inch concrete slab , it is a thin layer of gyp crete that covers the pex , it has the consistency of water when poured and sets up fast, it is self leveling and any movement in the pex shows up and cant be undone . Yes if it was fastened continuously it could not move but that would be ridiculous . As so this discussion !  
    •   Just like all the other teams do. He gets the same shot over and over against every team. Not sure how you let a guy with 18 power play goals float like that. Doesn't hurt Bakstrom is setting it all up. You leave him and just cover Ovi and he will light you up.
    • Good looking driveway always enhances the value of the home and attract friends and neighbors. Nowadays, the commonly used paving materials are concrete slabs and paving stones. Concrete slabs are easy to install, but the material takes a time to dry and cure. Whereas, paving stone installation are ready to use immediately upon completion. Like, last month my neighbor had hired the services of driveway paving in Suffolk County contractors to lay a brick paver patio in their garden area. After the completion of installation, it has appreciated the value of their property.
    • Caught a 19" Bass fishing for Crappie last night!!   I was using 2.5" Gulp Minnows on a small Jig catching Crappie and i couldn't get a good pic as it was dark and couldn't get flash to come on my phone.   4 pound test .... nice little fight .... Had a few nice swirls nip my Bobber also five minutes before that.   Crappies were 10" and thin (hungry)  all returned for some catch n release recreational fishing!!   
    • Just wondering if anyone has done this and if so I'd love to see pictures I'm going to make this my spring project 
    • Dude that's pretty awesome data and pics/video.   Way cooler stuff than when I was a middle school kid.
