EUROPEAN MOOSE
The European Moose (also called European Elk, Eurasian Elk or West Siberian Moose) differs quite a lot from the Siberian or North American ones. To our eyes, the coat of the European Moose is still brownish but lighter in colour, with less contrast and seasonal change. Its nose is shorter and less humped. Finally, its horns are comparably smaller and can be more flattened or palmate and cervine. Only palmate ones (25P) are accepted in the SCI Record Book.
It inhabits the North of Europe from Norway to West Siberia in Russia. It is considered to exist a large number of them, being in Sweden one of the most popular hunts.

THE HUNT
This hunt is mainly conducted on spot-and-stalk or hunting from blinds. In both cases, we go through open areas or forest borders where they normally live. Due to the excellent smell and hear senses of the Moose, stalking in the forest is normally useless as we will prevent them even before having a chance.
The season goes from September to November, which coincides with their rut. During this time, the males are much more active so we will have several opportunities on a trip. However, note that the closer to the winter, the colder temperatures will find. Two outings are organized a day.

THE HUNTING AREA
The preferred habitat for the European Moose is the northern taiga forests, where open grounds mix with coniferous forests and lakes or rivers. In fact, the existence of water sources is quite important to set the perfect habitat for the Moose as due their short neck, they can’t chase the ground, so they need to dive to drink and sometimes feed.
Our area is located in Tyumen, in Central Siberia. The area counts with a very large population of Moose, being possible to have several opportunities per trip. The area holds different wooden houses offered as accommodation to the hunters.
