Default Moose on a Budget!!!

Bill Ball and I are heading north to bow hunt moose with Fern at Kashabowie Outposts in Ontario. Bill is on the road from Ohio as we speak and my relief will be here at 2ish.

http://www.kashabowieoutposts.com/

Bill and I spent almost 2 weeks with Fern last year but tough weather made it tough for moose hunting. The weather definitely didn't put a damper on things though as it was by far my funnest adventure while hunting.

This year we have cleared our schedules and plan on staying until the archery season ends on October 9th...if that is what it takes.

If you have ever wanted to moose hunt but thought it would cost too much...check out Kashabowie Outposts. This hunt will cost a fraction of the expensive Yukon hunts....and it is only a 12ish hour drive from the Chicagoland area.

And big moose....you want big moose???? Here are some bulls that were taken up there last year...most shot just days after we left (when the weather improved)

Best of it! I have looked these hunts over and you're right they are very reasonably priced for a moose hunt. I have seen the hunts the R&V did with them and it looks to be a very easy style to bowhunt them. And being from Ohio I would do it. And drive time from here is about 15 hours. Next year???

IMO ontario is over looked due to the fact that the Yukon and B.c gets so much attention. There are some real monster here, last year the new record was set for Ontario, shot outside of Thunder Bay it scored in at well over 200" and was 64" wide.

Our gang has an bull tag for the first time in five years. We don't go very far north an still see some monsters shot one there in 2004 that was 48" wide an scored 161". I have a couple that I knoe are in the area this year right now that are both bigger then that one it is just getting to them come opening day. The smaller of the two should be in the low 50's while the larger of the two could be in the mid 60's. Taking both the muzzleloader an the bow with me this year.

Should be an good year, i have an trail camera out up there since the beginning of Aug, should be some picture for sure.

Being a resident, I am allowed to hunt without being registered with an outfitter. Four of us trekked north (about a 10 hour drive from southestern Ontario) for our annual bowhunt pilgrimage for moose. When all was tallied and said and done, we likely beat up the better part of $2K ($500 each) for a week's hunt. That's licenses, food, gas, propane, butcher shop and any other expenses that cropped up. Biggest problem in hunting Ontario is tag availability. Residents are required to apply though a lottery and it's getting harder and harder to get tags. Easier to get the moose in my opinion.

Non-residents must be booked with a registered outfitter. Before signing on with an outfitter, get confirmation what his tag or tags allocation is. Mucho importante! The further north you travel in Ontario (Thunder Bay and north and northwest), the better the chances at getting tags and likely a better chance at larger bulls on average, but you've got quite a bit further to drive. It's about a 28 hour drive for me to drive from my home to the Manitoba border, driving in Ontario the whole way! I can drive to Florida in less time than it takes me to drive across Ontario!

I've bowhunted for moose in Ontario since 1980 and have found that the best time for the call in my area (mid northern Ontario) is September 24th to October 2nd.
