    just a word of warning if you ever come across hunting.by in Belarus avoid them like the plague. Very poor hunting company who are refusing to send my moose trophy and will not even respond to calls or messages now. I can’t even hold the agent accountable as they are no longer in business. I’ve pretty much given up now but don’t want anybody Else experiencing what I am.

    Why? They’re present in Russia, parts of Scandinavia and central Europe. I believe historically western population boundary was Vistula river. Today there are small pockets of Moose populations west of Vistula but majority is to the east of the river. My hunting area’s border is actually the east bank of Vistula and we see Moose regularly, however in Poland they are temporarily under protection so looki looki but no touchie ;-)

    Moose live all over the northern hemisphere.
    The Eastern European and bordering moose should be in the class of the American Shiras moose.
    From time to time there, is also a strong moose where you might think it comes from BC.
    Many European hunters are in the Baltic States, Russia and neighbouring countries because of the moose.

    I strongly recommend anyone wanting to hunt in strange places like this use a top notch booking agency like the Hunting Consortium. It costs little more to use a booking agency and that little % is nothing compared to losing a hard earned trophy.

    And remember, they are only called moose in North America. In the rest of the world it is normally a form of the word “elk”. Yeah, the colonists got it wrong when they first saw a wapiti.

    I wonder if this outfitter will just open under another name. Like previously posted, go with a reputable and proven organization.

    It is why it is so important to use a hunting consultant with a proven track record when headed into a totally new environment. I strongly second @Philip Glass in recommending Bob Kern's The Hunting Consortium for anywhere off the beaten path. http://huntingconsortium.com/about-us/

    Bang on, only three bulls were ever killed. A fourth wounded and lost. It was very much a shame.

    I did use an agency and it cost extra. The agency has since gone belly up and won’t respond to me.
