William- any advice on what zones to apply in? This will be my 4th or 5th year applying and I would like to put in for your area. The idea of a wilderness Moose hunt from a Tipi, as opposed to a road hunt, would be far more enjoyable for me. Thanks.

Ken,
I would choose #12 because B&amp;C bulls are taken here more often than zones that look better because of high permit numbers. Only 50 are given out for zone # 12, but this is where the big ones are. I will guide in all zones, and your chances are better if you apply for a zone like #8. Any zone you choose, and any moose taken will be locked in your hunting memory bank for life. I love moose hunting, and when you get off the beaten path and in the brush, it is a heart-throbbing, earth-connecting experience. William Clunie

Thank you sir. I was looking at the numbers, trying to decide where would be the best bet for drawing, but, I'll be sure to put in for the "Monster" area as my #2 preference (just in case I get REALLY lucky! /images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif ).

Ken,
Give me a call if you get a permit. Best of luck in June (the draw). Winners are posted on Maine's Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife (DIFW) web site. <a href="http://www.mefishwildlife.com" target="_blank">http://www.mefishwildlife.com (http://www.mefishwildlife.com)</a>

I'm keeping my fingers crossed, I've really wanted to get up there and chase those critters around for a long time. A buddy of mine was lucky enough to draw a bull tag on his first try and I know of another guy who drew a cow tag. Both had a great time...I can't wait!

My dad and I have been applying for years. I hope that this is the year for me or my dad.

Maine has the best moose hunting in my opinion. They are plentiful, not too far away and you can use a handgun on them.

The downside is getting the permit. My friends wife obtained one after trying for fifteen years.

Big Bore,
I was lucky and got a permit in '98 after only 3-4 years of applying. Stick with it and eventually you will get one. They also auction off a few permits for those that might have an extra $5,000 to $15,000. The money goes to send kids to Maine's conservation school. They learn outdoor skills/ethics, etc. It is a great school.
Best of luck to you on your drawing. The best way is to get a group of hunting buddies and all apply. When one of you gets the permit, then all of you come up. It is a great way to spend a week in Maine. The non-moose permit buddies can hunt ruffed grouse and enjoy the camp life while you shoot your bull. (We sit around the camp fire and shoot the bull, while you shoot THE bull).
Give me a call when you get your permit. Look me up at: <a href="http://www.mooserock.org" target="_blank">http://www.mooserock.org (http://www.mooserock.org)</a>
