Briefly Noted: DU Auction Tag for Shiras Moose

Our friends at Colorado Ducks Unlimited will again auction a statewide moose license (governor’s tag) on April 26, 2018, at the Highlands Ranch DU banquet held at the Park Meadows Marriott Hotel in Lone Tree, Colorado. This license allows the hunter to participate in any open moose season in any area of CO, including all archery, rifle and muzzleloader seasons.

This year’s license will be auctioned live. Phone bids will be accepted. For details, please contact Kirk Davidson at 303-927-1949 or at kdavidson@ducks.org. Proceeds from the sale of this license go to wetland habitat projects in CO that benefit both moose and waterfowl.

In the past, the tag has typically sold for between $33,000 and $40,000. The 2017 tag was an anomaly, raising $62,000 for DU’s wetlands conservation programs.

If you buy the tag and take the hunt, please file a hunt report.
