moose season

One of my best friends drew a moose tag in the vermont lottery this year. I got to be his second shooter and another one of our good was with us as well. I’ve never got to go on a moose hunt because it is hard to win a tag in the Vermont moose lottery. You could wait 20 years if not more. So once we knew we had a moose tag we started scouting a couple weeks early and we found moose sign, but not a lot of it. There are only around 3500 moose in vermont take or give a bit. The first morning we got up real early, made breakfast, made our lunch, got our backpacks ready, and headed out while it was still dark. Got to where we wanted to be right as it was getting light out. I started doing some light cow moose calls and in the distance we could hear three bull moose coming towards us. After half an hour a huge moose came to about 40 yrds. from my buddy and I. As my buddy counted to three, we both shot at the same time. And it ended up getting two kill shots on the moose. It went about 40 yrs. and dropped. Then the work began because we had to figure out how to get a 800 lb. animal out of the woods. With its horns having a 43.5 in. spread. Once in a lifetime moose and best time in the woods I’ve ever had with friends hunting.

Keith was an outstanding guide. He was patient, took the time to explain the technique we were to use, and was set on us landing fishing. We had a great time and would definitely use his charter again.

Took the guys out for the day on the lake and had a blast reeling in big bass. Kieth was awesome and we will be using him again in the future.

If you’re looking to catch a ton of fish and have a blast while you’re doing it, you’re at the right place! Can’t wait to go again.

I had the pleasure of being on Keith's boat August 6th fishing for my first lake trout trip. He put us on tons of fish and I put my limit in the freezer. Always a great time and an even better fishing guide.

Im not much of a fisherman, but Keith made me feel like a pro. He has top notch equipment, knowledge, and was very professional and patient with a novice like me.

Great trip on Lake Bomoseen with my son! Enjoyed the day - Keith did a terrific job and it was a great experience. He works hard to ensure you're catching fish! We'll see you again next year for sure. Thanks. George

Keith runs a great business, has great character, and is invested in your success and happiness. No other captain and charter has brought me the experience Keith catered - lessons, laughs, diligence and a personalized journey hooking into fish all day. There wasn’t a half hour where we didn’t put a fish on the boat - of course each day is different - but you could always feel the magic when he put a rod in your hands. 5/5

We've now been out twice with Keith and had an awesome experience each time. He knows the lake like the back of his hand and put us right on the big fish time and time again. He worked tirelessly with my 5 year old son to make sure he had fun and learned a lot about fishing. I highly recommend Stay Bent Fishing Tours to anyone in the VT area who wants to go out and have a fun day landing monster fish.

Awesome half day trip on Lake Rescue for smallmouth and largemouth bass. Topwater action was consistent with several really solid fish. Beautiful lake. Guide was professional, knowledgeable and fun to spend the morning with.
