Practice Your Calls, Tips for your Next Guided Moose Hunt

Jul 24, 2015 | Moose

If you’re afraid to give moose calling a shot, you’re missing out.

At Batnuni Lake Guides & Outfitters, our BC moose hunting season is conducted during prime rut times, from mid-September to the end of October, when the animals are responding to calling.

Moose calling takes practice, but not perfection. And with the average moose size running between 40-45 inches during prime rut times, it’s worth a try. Success is largely dependent on ensuring there is a moose within earshot, and eager to come to you. Batnuni Lake Guides & Outfitters has the hunting grounds and the timeliness to bring a monstrously sized moose home.

The thrill of attracting a moose by calling it during the rut is an experience that will be with you for the rest of your life. So what’s holding you back? Here are our tips for honing your moose calling skills.

  1. Practice where you won’t be heard by others
    In the relative sound-proof safety of your garage or shed, you can practice calling for hours without disturbing loved ones. Here you can focus on establishing the pitch and tone you will use in your calling. The goal is to gain consistency in your delivery. This takes time and practice.
  2. Check out instructional clips on YouTube
    A quick search on YouTube for “moose calling techniques” will give you hundreds of samples to explore. You can also purchase instructional videos for moose calling to get coaching and tips.
  3. Practice your patience, too
    When you’re out on the hunting grounds, you will need patience to make calling work. You could be waiting for hours before receiving any response to your calls. Don’t stress; your experienced moose hunting guide will be able to assess your surroundings to ensure you are situated on the downwind side of where you hope to call the moose from. On a guided hunt, your efforts are put to good use.
  4. Get pumped up!
    Save moose call recordings on your iPod or other audio device to listen to on your way up to camp. It’s a great way to get excited for your BC moose hunt and prepare your call for big time success.
  5. Hide your scent
    You will greatly improve your chances of attracting a moose with your call when your humanly scent is not giving you away. Read our blog post for scent-masking tips.
