Shed Moose Antler Hunting - (January & May)
(rates are per person)

Winter Full-Day (8 hours)................................$360.00
Spring Full-Day (10 hours)..............................$300.00


You will be guided through known wintering areas for moose. This trip includes all transportation, which may be by either 4X4 or snowmobile (winter trips). This trip requires a significant amount of walking in order to have good odds for success. You must be in good physical condition and able to walk with snowshoes (winter trips). Moose wintering areas are located in hard-to-reach, remote locations and  require a full-day trip to complete.  Hunting for moose sheds is a very competitive activity that many people participate in. Although more physically demanding, it is advantageous to go during the winter, in order to have the best chance of success.
Trip availability is based on favorable snow conditions and /or ability to access remote areas.

Any shed(s) found by the client during these trips become the sole property of the client. Most freshly shed moose antlers have a retail value of between $50.00 and $200.00 each! 
Rates shown above are per person. Discounts available for a multiple-person party.




** Meals & Lodging are included ONLY with the  "Fully Guided (American Plan) Moose Hunt"
We can assist with securing lodging for European plan hunts
*TIPS & GRATUITIES for your guide, cook and/or moose/bear recovery assistants are not included in the above rates 
and are left completely to the client's discretion.
