Also known by som as the Wyoming moose, Shiras moose (Alces alces shirasi) has the smallest body of any North American moose. They are found in British Columbia, Alberta, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming and Utah. Typically, drawing a tag is the tough part, but there are a number of ways to skip the draw. We can help you get Conservation Tags, Landowner Tag, and our British Columbia hunt is one of the only over-the-counter Shiras moose hunts available.
Bulls range in size from 36” to 55” and often tip the scales at 1,200 lbs. Their diet consists of alder branches, grass and shrubs, and along with mountain goats, are the only animals that do not move to wintering grounds during the winter. Shiras moose are often referred to “the moose of the mountains”, as they can be found high up in alpine slides. These moose do not seem to enjoy swamps and water as much as the other species do.

The World Record Shiras Moose
The Boone and Crockett world record Shiras moose was taken by John M. Oakley in 1952, near Green River Lake, Wyoming. The bull scores 205-4/8 points. Mounted and initially owned by J.L. Nevins and H.A. Yocum of Frontier Taxidermists, Oakley’s prized moose was later sold to the Jackson Hole Museum in Jackson, Wyoming.
