Better than nothing! No one I know got one either, or I could tag along and maybe get a bit of the meat for helping. Way too many people putting in for them.

A smart moose hunter has a crew ready and willing to help butcher and pack meat. Especially when you've got a mile or two of packing through tangled brush and swamps. Sharing the meat is well worth getting it out of the woods and hanging asap. Less chance of bears getting it or meat spoiling etc. Plus having a cookout with beer and spud salad is a good time with all involved.

A moose couldn't tell the difference between Mossy Oak and Realtree if you were wiping his nose with both of them.

They'll hear ya loooong before they see ya. As long as your not moving/making noise you could probably wear hunter orange and be ok. I know as many guys (and gals) that wear bluejeans and Carhartt's as camo...and it doesn't seem to sway getting a moose, in either garb.

Stillness is more important than camo. All the camo in the world won't help you get an animal if you can't sit still.

Not big enough to hide behind tho. I've always just used military issue camo gear...never tried the mossy oak stuff.
I have some oak acorns from MI.

Dress up like a rather large yellow/gray Husky/sharpei/chow/timber wolf dog and you'll have tons of meese. Worked well for me in the Su Valley.

Moose hunting in September? In the interior: By the second week of September, and later, you want brown, rust, the yellow on birch leaves, or a mix of all. By then the vegetation starts turning yellow, rust, and brown colors. Sometimes I have been wearing Carhartts overalls, the sort of yellow tan (something like that), and my hunting partner had a hard time spotting me unless I moved
