Utah Moose Hunting


Utah Moose Hunting

Utah is near the southern extent of the Shiras moose range, and as such, suitable habitat is limited. 99% of the population is in Northern Utah, which is where a lot of private property is, and because of this, some of Utah's moose units are extremely difficult to access for self-guided hunters. All of the units available for non-residents have some private property limitations. All of them outside of Ogden have plenty of public land to be able to have a good hunt. On the other side of that coin, Utah has a program that allows these private landowners to sell moose permits and there are several ranches that have them every year. These ranches are part of the CWMU (Cooperative Wildlife Management Unit) program. For more information, go to https://wildlife.utah. gov/about-the-cwmu-program.html or give us a call for ranches that we work with.

There are five hunts available for non­residents to apply for in 2022. Trophy potential looks to be on the rebound with better bulls being harvested in 2021. Big bulls were hard to come by in 2019 and 2020, but 2021 had a few great bulls pop up along with more sightings of up and comers. Ogden is still on the mend from low population numbers starting in 2018, but this year showed some good young bulls coming on. It is a very difficult unit for public land hunters, so plan on hiring a guide in this unit. The other units have good moose numbers and will give hunters a great chance to harvest a mature bull, but if you are looking for trophy class bulls, you will want to stick with the Cache and North Slope, Summit units this year.
