Course I apply out west for moose and those odds aren't great either, but do plan to one day draw the tag...

The odds are better in Vermont and NH than in any western state that I know of.. They are even better in New Brunswick.. Perhaps 1 in 25 or so for nonresidents..

I am sorry you never got a tag this year. I was lucky and drew a tag here in Maine last year. It took us 30 minutes to get one. I waiting for almost 30 years it seams. Now I have to wait 2 years before i can apply again. But I am on other tags but they never drew either. Better luck next year. Maine has a pretty good success rate also but it surely depends on the zone you are hunting in.

the odds arent too bad here for moose. my dad drew last year, i got to go as his second, and i shot a 51" bull. in 2004 i got drawn and filled my cow tag. but, if you go to tundratours.com, they offer moose hunts in quebec for 1800? i think it is. i hope to send my dad there next year with tax money. he and i have gone twice, but i have done all the shooting. its his turn.

I missed as well. The Moose population in southern quebec is very good north of VT's northeast kingdom moving east... matching to Quebec's zone 4 east. But north of St. Albans is all farmland. Good waterfowl; deer and upland hunting, but not many Moose.

Finally drew mine. My zone has large tracts of forest, but there are plenty of moose if you get out and look for them.

Zone L. It's the only zone I've put in for. We have a camp in ther area and I have seen many moose in the past. It sets up nicely, with the reporting station right down the road in Londonderry.
