Questions to Ask a Moose-Hunting Guide

If you’re thinking of booking a moose-hunting guide, it pays to know the right questions to ask. Asking smart questions can make a big difference to the success of your hunt. For example:

How long have you been in business?

A more experienced outfitter will likely know the ins and outs of managing the logistics of a hunt.

Can you provide references?

Knowing what others think can help you make a more informed choice.

Do you charge trophy fees, or have minimum size requirements?

Some outfitters have a minimum and will fine you if you shoot something too small. Others have trophy fees, which means they charge extra based on the size of the animal. It pays to know these things in advance.

Do you have all of the hunting rights to the land you outfit on? How much land is there, and how many people hunt there?

Knowing how much property you’ll be able to hunt on is extremely important. Also, the number of other people, including landowners, hunting on the same land may affect the outcome of your hunt.

Whose responsibility is it to get the tags?

Make sure you’re clear on this so that if you’re responsible, you can apply for the correct tags in advance.
