It has always bothered me why ADF&G (or whoever writes the rules) gave us a "bowhunting" moose season in area 13/14 from August 10-17 (hot weather, lots of folage, animals that won't respond to most any type of calling, etc...) instead of post rifle season (October) when the rut is kicking in hard.
My question is this - What would it take to get the bowhunting season moved to post rifle season so we could take advantage of the rut and would stand a considerably better chance at calling in a bull? I realize that everyone and their brother would then become bowhunters, but they would still have to take the time and make the effort to pass the IBEP certification. I really enjoy my bow, but have a very hard time getting excited about moose hunting in early August.
Any opinions? suggestions?
