Colorado Shiras Moose - My Dream Hunt

Description: A moose hunt has been my dream since I was a kid, but I have yet to draw the license. I ran across this bull in the Vasquez Wilderness here in Colorado while elk hunting last fall. His palms are not that big, but his body is the biggest I have seen on a shiras. He was hanging out with two other bulls that looked tiny next to him.

Pab1, Thats exactly the same way I got into the hunting of a Shiras moose. I was hunting elk and wound up taking a 5x5 with my rifle (thats another story).
However, while I was elk hunting I kept running into these excellent animals so when I had enough money I booked the hunt. That sure is a big bodied moose.

Thanks guys! The moose were thick in there last year. A cow moose with her calf were hanging out at 12,000' elevation. I had never seen moose that high up before. Also found a plane crash site and the skeleton of a horse that died on that hunt. I'd like to know the stories behind those two.

That would be an awesome hunt indeed! I have done a little bit of research on Shiras moose hunting here in the states though, and the outlook for getting drawn is bleak! oh well, can't get a tag without trying though! that must've been cool finding the plane wreckage!
