Moose Hunt

New for the 2016 Big Game Hunting Season are a limited number of moose tags in Game Management Units 48 and 49. We have been tracking the moose in both these units and know where multiple big bulls are.  Let us help you fill your tag!moose

Moose hunts use weighted preference points.  Per the Colorado big game brochure after receiving 3 preference points you will receive a weighted preference.  Weighted preference is calculated by converting your application number into a different, random application number, then dividing that new application number by the number of weighted points you have, plus one. Individuals with three preference points and no weighted preference will have their application number divided by one. This generates another new application number. Applications are sorted by this new number from lowest to highest, and low numbers for each hunt code are awarded licenses.

Moose hunting seasons are shown in table 1 while the number of tags available in each unit is shown in table 2.
