The Moose hunting season in our area of Alaska is from september 5 to 25 for Giant Bull Moose. These trophy Alaskan bull moose can be found feeding on birch, willows, as well as aspen twigs available higher up mountain valleys. Flourishing forage is an essential ingredient in helping the growth of their antlers. Soft velvet covers the antlers as they grow. It is important to note that the lush forage grows well during the months that come during the summer. The soft velvet on the antlers developed during the summer begins to harden in the course of August.
Colder frosty nights and shorter days is when the giant Bull Moose start rubbing the velvet from their antlers beginning late August. Here at Clearwater Alaska Outfitters we travel the river during the Moose Hunt experience. During midSeptember, Moose hunting Alaska is at the peak as the rut for Giant Bull Moose begins.
