    Default Kenai moose hunting

    There really isn't any good moose hunting on the Kenai pen. Much more likelihood of success with a registration bear tag.

    I've lived on the penn for 9 years. I see a hundred cow moose each year for every bull of any size at all. I do a float hunt far away instead for the last 8 years.

    just thought that I would share with you as a new member that you may not realize that a question like that isn't going to get an honest answer. No one is going to give up info like that over the net to someone that they don't know.

    On a side note, welcome to the forum

    I used to know some really good spots for moose on the Kenai.I too quit hunting there several years ago.

    No moose and no kings so I left as well.

    dont be fooled they are there,just not as many as in years past for lots of reasons... you have to get out and put your time in and you may be surprised. A lot depends on time of season..if early archery a lot of bigger bulls tend to hang up on higher ground..when the pre rut starts to hit look at the topos for some corridors(sp?) that lead down from high country... If you decide to call be prepared to have more bears answer then moose at times....

    I'll gladly give you the complete and honest answer. There ain't any moose left near Kenai. If you want to hunt moose, you'll have to go somewhere else, preferrably someplace that Anchorage will also have a difficult time getting to. Been hunting here on the Kenai since 1978 and we haven't taken a moose around here in over 15 years. In the 80's we got one every year, and they weren't that hard to find. We have taken a number of them within a couple miles of the house back then. Now, those areas are all Hall "quality" homes and there ain't a big bull moose to be found.

    I would venture a guess that that moose was not shot due to the 3+ mile hike to get him during the season.
    If my guess is right you would have to pass a locked gate to get to where that guy hangs out.
    Not to say there aren't any big moose left on the Peninsula but the odds are pretty slim.
    I would venture to guess that a person would be much better off with much greater odds of succes in traveling north from the Peninsula or flying somewhere.
    If any of us Peninsula residents had knowledge on a spot with better odds I don't suppose we would give it up before we harvested a moose first making it unlikely that spot was any good anymore anyway.

    You'd be wrong with that guess my friend.... My son took this pic with his phone as it ran across the highway in front of him driving between Soldotna and Kasilof....

    Granted, the moose (bull) population is very sad indeed. But I heard of at least a couple legal bulls killed on the Peninsula last year. And a guy killed one of them where I hunt as well not far from my house. There are still a few around, but I'm still surprised the F&G decided to let us hunt them this season.

    Good Gawd. I cannot believe you jack-wagons would not only post on the internet that there are moose on the Kenai, but back it up with a picture!!! What are you thinking?!?

    To all the lurkers... they are liars. We ain't got a single legal bull near Kenai. You'd best go to the Koyukuk.
