Thus, the best time for proper moose hunting is a short-term (not more than a week) period before and at the beginning of the rut, allowing to shoot the oldest bulls which interfere with the normal rut, in order to discourage adult sexually mature males.
In November-December the whole area is under snow cover. A hunter with outfitter runs long distance by snowmobile looking for tracks of a male moose. Outfitter usually drives a snowmobile, and the hunter is behind him. It is important to think of a very warm hunting gear. As soon as fresh tracks are found, the hunter stalks the moose in snow shoes or on skis.
