My father has drawn out a wasatch bull moose tag, he is very excited. I'm trying to help him out in finding a big bull. Doing a lot of looking and am not coming up with any thing worth hunting (small bulls), wondering if what we are seeing is what he has to pick from or if I have been focused on the wrong spots, was wondering if anyone had any helpful info..

We had two good size bulls run right through our camp last year; one stopped 6' from my son.

Mill Canyon Spring... some groups saw more Moose than deer!

I have seen several good bulls on the CO-Op Road heading west from Currant Creek. Park your car or truck and hike the drainage just south of the road and you will find them in the bottoms... Good Luck! Post pics too please!

Keep following the cows. The bulls will show up. Where have you been scouting? Pm me if you want.

I had a cow moose tag back in 2008 on the East Canyon unit and all I could find were bulls...and yes most of them were small. I hunted all or parts of 15 days throughout the season and saw exactly one bull that I would consider a "good" bull. He was probably high 30s, maybe low 40s wide with good palms and 8-9 points per side. I saw him in mid-to-late Oct. after having hunted on and off since mid-Sept. The moose herd has dropped off quite a bit since then, but I still think the overall pattern applies. You will see lots of younger bulls, but the bigger ones will take some time and patience.

I'm scouting a small patch of public land this weekend for the upcoming general elk hunt and it's right inside the borders of your hunt unit. If I see anything, I will let you know. I've never seen anything big in this particular area, but you never know.
