I am hunitng the 20A RM 764 hunt on snowmachine across the Tanana. So far, only day tripping past 2 weekends with another buddy. As many of the posts have stated, this is not an easy hung but enjoyable all the same. Navigating the river is tricky at best, lots of hazardous spots appear real quick. I have spotted several tracks, fresh and old alike but have only spotted one Cow Moose at dusk and it was too far for realistic kill shot...500yds at least.
I was wondering, is anyone willing to share some insight to winter moose hunting? Do they respond to calls now? Are they prone to stay in the deeper cover and wooded areas during the daylight hours?
Finally, my method of hunt them so far has been basically to just travel the river edges and any open sloughs or trails, lookd for fresh tracks in and out of the river islands while hoping to spot and stalk. Is this method the correct tactic or should I be hitting the thick stuff, take a 3-4 days set up camp and hike the areas? I guess, relying on luck, is a better way to put it.
Any advice and guidance is greatly appreciated.
