Maine moose hunting

Can anyone tell me how difficult it is to get a moose tag in Maine? I understand there is a points system,can anyone share how many points are needed to draw a tag? thanks

Re: Maine moose hunting

You're better off taking the money you figure you would spend in 15-20 years that it may take to draw (or longer probably) and bid on the sealed bids tags they have every year. Its such a long shot its hardly worth it. You can go to ontario relatively cheap and kill a good bull. Sorry to be a kill joy. Sure somebodys gotta draw and knows a guy who drew or a brothers sisters uncles cousin drew 5 years ago first time....

Re: Maine moose hunting

maine is not a preference point state. each year you apply and do not draw a tag you get another chance in the draw. plus you can buy as many chances in the draw as you have money for. good luck someone has to draw.

Re: Maine moose hunting

Is it hard also for Maine residents or just hard for out of staters?
