Moose Shiras

The Shiras is the smallest of the North American Moose and are located in a number of Western states. The licenses for these animals are highly desired and extremely limited. Each state uses a draw system to allocate the limited tags, but Utah also offers transferable landowner vouchers. Outdoor Adventure Specialists works with outfitters across the west that guide our clients to their Shiras bull. With each state and hunt being unique, let O.A.S. assist you in drawing the correct tag and building the best available hunt.

In the great state of Wyoming we have handpicked two outfitters that spend the summer months keeping track of the largest antlered bulls in their units. Wyoming utilizes a lottery draw system to allocate the limited entry tags for each unit. However, the top producing units that our outfitters scout typically take many points to draw.

In Utah we work with an outfitter with many years of experience and access to some of the best ranches. The access to these properties assures that our hunters take quality bulls and have great adventures. The moose tags are either won in random draw system or purchased through a landowner voucher program. These vouchers add substantial cost to the hunt but assure that you hunt Shiras Moose without waiting to draw a tag.

Northern Colorado produces some great Shiras bulls and has a healthy moose population. Our outfitter knows these areas well and guides clients to some of the largest bulls taken in Colorado each season. Colorado uses a point system for the non-resident draw licenses. 

Idaho consistently has the best Shiras draw tag odds in the West. But recent wolf problems have caused some stress to the population and can affect your hunt. It is best to talk with O.A.S. before applying for any Idaho moose tags.

Shiras Moose


My Husband and I booked our honeymoon adventure through OAS two years ago. I knew that I was marrying a man who loved to hunt and he knew I wanted an unforgettable experience. We were not the easiest clients to work with; we wanted the hunt of a lifetime. A few things OAS was able to do for us: My husband wanted a great hunt, good food, and to stay within a budget. I asked for a lodge with pet-friendly accommodations, I wanted to hunt with my husband in a stand (not in a ground blind), and I wanted to use my bow. OAS was able to find a hunt that encompassed all of the things we wanted: a great lodge with 3 amazing meals provided every day, a company who accepted our small pets, and a guide willing to accommodate such a ‘needy girl’. I had the time of my life on this hunt! The week of our hunt I got the first kill and ended up with the largest bear of the week. I cannot image a more amazing experience to share than going to Canada and bringing home two Black Bears. Most couples bring home a few souvenirs and pictures from their honeymoon, we have two beautiful trophies mounted in our cabin that remind of us the amazing experience every day. Our hunt was great, our guides were the best, and all our travels were eased with the guidance we received from OAS. I can truly say that working with OAS has been our pleasure and we would recommend working with Chris to everyone!
