OH MOOSE! ColoradoContributors to this thread:

Man I am sooooo blessed this year to have been awarded an archery moose tag for 7,8,191! I am requesting any type of help, advice, pointers, $0.02. I have never hunted moose. I have come across them LOTS elk hunting (which is why I started putting in for points tags every year). I am a fit 33 year old male willing to hike my tail off. I honestly didn’t expect to pull this tag till I was in my 40,s. I don’t care if this is a record setter, but would love a mature bull, but will take a smaller bull if i have to. I am an experienced archery hunter and a decent shot. I am slightly familiar with the Cameron pass area as well as dead man area in GMU8. I’m looking for advice on scouting (as I will spend my summer scouting for this once in a life time opportunity) I am so excited for his hunt I can’t sleep some nights and it’s still 3.5 months away ??. Any kind of help is greatly appreciated! THANK YOU in advance!!!
Good for you! I come across them too when elk hunting up north. I'd stay close to water in valleys but I have seen some nice bulls up on top of mountains above those same valleys and all the way back where creeks start up high in basins. Good luck and stay after it!

Yeah, bribe Lou with a good bottle of scotch. You won’t regret it. I’m green with envy BTW, i’m At 3/13 now for moose and that should have been MY tag:)
PM me with your email and contact info and let's talk. I'll fix you up.
Go out during the summer and scout. Then go out a couple weeks early and scout. Then go out the week before and scout so you can be on top of a Bull before somebody else blindly stumbles on him the first day.
Good luck man, I'm no help, haven't hunted those areas, I'll be after a cow moose myself in a different unit. Hit Lou up, get all the help you can with the packing!
