My son had this tag when he was 11 a few years ago. I had him type up a letter asking permission to hunt on the farms and then he delivered the letter to each farm. Not one farmer turned him down. It was a good lesson on how to do things right. We practiced a lot with his gun and I bought a shooting tripod for him to shoot over. Go early and often as the early season gave us several good shot opportunities but finding a moose that would hang around long enough for him to get set up on the tripod was an exercise in patience for me. He finally got his moose with one shot and it was a great experience for both of us. You can call me if you would like at 677-3536. One of the disappointing things was all the harvest ticket hunters and adult cow tag hunters in the area. Fish & Game should allow the youth hunters an extended season to improve the quality of the experience and the success rate.
The Little Su is difficult to see much from the river. You may be able to find a few spots you can climb up and see more of the country and find a moose.
I could put you/her on a place where you're sure to do good, and you can get a vehicle so close to the kill site that you needn't cut it up until after aging. I find there's less meat loss if left whole during the few days of aging (depending on ambient temps).
it is a shame that they want to encourage kids to get out but do not provide them the opportunity to do it in an environement that is dedicated to just them, and on top of it limit them to only a few days. The State really needs to look into letting them hunt either earlier and or later than the general hunt and not have to compete with 50 licensed adult cow hunters and the bull hunters. It would cut down on the frustrasion and allow them to have a more quality hunt and encourage them to continue hunting as they grow older. Also i will give you a call this weekend in regards to areas.
