The spot and stalk technique is for a flatter terrain or higher area that offers a good overview of opposite and adjacent ridgelines and valleys. This approach requires the assistance of some quality, high-powered optics. Binoculars can do the trick, but, for more distant glassing, a good spotting scope accompanied by a good tripod will work much better. This type of hunting is best used in the later parts of the year such as November. With the bright colors of fall having all but receded to the forest floor, moose will be easier to spot from a neighboring hillside. This is particularly true if the winter season is gracious enough to provide a blanket of snow; allowing a big, black-haired moose to stick out like a sore thumb.
