    Definitely can’t reserve it for next year.

    Yes, my cottage is in 63a. It looks like there are (or were) actually 2 short seasons, a bow and gun season. Unfortunately, the chances of getting drawn for an adult tag were 6% (!), so that probably translates into a whole whack of points. I'll keep monitoring the situation to see if, as the years go by, they start publishing info on the "minimum points" required for a tag, maybe spend the $15 to buy my annual point.
    Our old camp was in the absolute north west corner of 63A, there were moose up there, you always saw sign and on occasion there was one spotted during the deer hunt, one year we had a big lone cow run the block line to the point that one guy had to move as the moose ran right over where he was sitting, ha ha.

    There are moose in that area, elk are moving into there as well.

    Just be patient, if things work as expected the moose numbers will come up around there and you will have a chance to go hunt moose and probably elk around your cottage in the not too distant future.

We'll just have to wait our turn. Not holding my breath but talked to a few of his neighbors when we went for a bird hunt. 3 of them had tags this past year so at least I'm ahead of them now.
    There are very few moose near Geraldton. The sea of orange and the native hunt took care of the numbers a while ago and will continue to do so. Good luck!

    Common sense says if you decline a tag one year, you should get one the next. In reality, it depends on the number of tags available and the number of points that applicants have. Tags are awarded to hunters with the most points, so if there are hunters with more points than you that apply, then they will be awarded tags before you. The risk is that there could be hunters with a lot of points that could theoretically apply to your unit for the first time and push you back in the line. No guarantees, just probabilities,

    Funny. People in the south go north to areas such as 28 (where I live) to hunt, and many in my area apply farther north (Kap, Hearst) where they have better odds of getting a tag. One thing that will be disappear in my area though, is the all the locals who didn't get drawn hitting the woods during the calf hunt.

    It is my understanding that they can not reserve it, but they can decline the tag this year re-enter the draw next year without detriment to their points
