Not sure about everyone else but I finally saw my first large bull moose on the Wasatch tonight.

Anyone else noticed the large decrease in good bull moose on the Wasatch?

Shiras moose across the west have been declining for many years. Where large bulls used to be common, they are now a rare sight and not just in Utah.
If you find cows, keep checking them to see if a large suitor joins them, but there is no magic formula.
I'd also ask every other hunter you run into (elk/deer) if they've seen moose because most are willing to share, but don't expect any Shiras moose hunt to be a cake walk. They have gotten pretty scarce.
