Farthest we got north east, was 1 load to Albany NY, another before went to Syracuse, NY, Did get close to Cape Cod, but at the fork in the highway we went right, so was just under 40 miles from Cape Cod. We did haul a load of Cabela's Kayaks and gear, to 3 store drops,in big shopping centers, from Cheyenne WY, out to NH,VT,Conn. Yeah those were fun ! (NOT) lol

Good luck Bruce, hopefully there's no snow waitin' on ya out thatta way yet !!

PackRat and Mikey B., I do not question your googling skills. You are definitely right with your prices from ideal life. The problem is, the ratio is hundreds of people to one tag. Also, there are tags allocated for special auctions. You will find very few people who payed the base price.

However, at that price that is an all inclusive package for two with luxury accommodations for 2 people and everything else listed here with a guaranteed trophy moose. This isnt hunting, its glamping with a moose hunt.

Your chance of winning a regular moose tag is 1 in 72.

More often than not, I question your posts, wondering if you should put a disclaimer warning on them: "Information may or may not be factual."

Readers can come to their own conclusions with your "facts and truths."

Incidentally, it wasn't a Google search. I've actually hunted moose in Maine, after a successful lottery draw many years ago. It cost me less than 1/10th of your quoted amount.

Yes, guys, you are right about the price tag. I misread the information, didn't realize that the price included lodging and many other things. I never hunted moose, so don't have any personal experience.

I will never go to Rhode Island again because their governor decided to toll I-95 for trucks only and let all their 4 wheelers go for free. Why should any truck be their cash cow? The TA at exit 5 did away with the sit down restaurant that I used to enjoy very much so any trip to the NE will by-pass Rhode Island. It's too easy to go around the smallest state in USA. A turnpike is one thing but to toll trucks only is pure BS and when you send any email or question to the governor it falls on deaf ears.

That governor (Raimondo) who began the truck-only tolling is now the Secretary of Commerce. What could go wrong?

My dad's family is from Maine. English was a second language for them. His sister is still living there...although at 91 she's in an assisted living home. A cousin lives in Old Orchard Beach.

From 72 until I got orders in 1978, I was stationed at Loring AFB (Limestone). My first husband was from Rumford ME. Both my kids were born at the base. It's a pretty state, but pretty humid in the summer with little no-see-ums that like to eat the heck out of you. Saw a lot of moose up there. When I drove from 88-93, I picked up several loads that came from the potato barns. Haven't driven up there since.
