Maine moose hunting September 2018 season in WMD 1 with Adam and his father in law Kevin. It’s 24 degrees opening morning and nothing is coming to the moose call. Reading the situation right and getting in on a paired up cow resulted in a fine trophy moose for Adam.

2014 Maine Moose Hunting Seasons

September 22-27, October 13-18, November 3-8

For the 2012 season, the overall success rate for the “traditional” Wildlife Management Districts further to the north had an overall success rate of 82%. Every year, several moose exceed 1,000 lbs. dressed weight. Trophy racks are not uncommon. The rutting season is a great time to be in the woods as moose are most active and responsive to the call.
