Selkirk A any moose what are your thought?
« on: June 19, 2013, 04:55:28 PM »
I drew Selkirk A any moose tag and would appreciate any help I could get on areas and what type of bull to go for.  I also drew entiat archery deer.  Since I have taken many good bucks I am going to concentrate on the moose but hopefully can get it done before the deer hunt! :yike:

I would try to get your moose the first week of October. They are in the rut then and can be called in. Get it done before the woods are crowded with deer hunters.

Congrats, make sure you make your announcement in the OIL Tags (2013) thread, you will meet others with moose tags and can compare notes.

Spouse and I both drew Selkirk tags over the years.  FUN! We both got bulls with bow.  Don't be surprised to find tapeworms--but they eat alright, if cooked well done. Try calling--worked for us.

Lots of moose and moose throughout the unit, I would shoot for 40 inches or more with at least 8 points per side and double eye guards. When I hunt that area I usually see 5 to 10 bulls per day which means a guy can be pretty selective. I have seen a lot of quality bulls in this unit, great hunt. :tup:

South end of the unit holds the most moose... Take the fS road just before bead lake.. It heads east towards ID.. It will get u up above the lake on top and there is some big clear cuts up there. I ve watched many big bulls up there.

Congrats,
I had that same tag 3 years ago.  I learned a lot and have many things I could pass on, the most of all is patience.  I got worried on day 5 of the season after not seeing more than 2 very small bulls in the first 5 days.  Had 4 family and friends with me, all calling in different areas as they looked for bear and nothing.  I was in an area that everyone said had good moose, even had photos of a 48"ish 12x13.  Season opener was unseasonably hot, 85-90 at 6-7000' and they were not responsive to the calling.  Evening of Day 5 a cold front came in, killed a 38" bull in a thick fog on day 6 and over the next few hours as we carved him up, we had multiple bulls grunting around us in the timber.  I am thrilled to have filled my OIL tag with a pretty little bull but from what I have seen in this forum, I most likely would have had many other opportunites as I had almost three more weeks of vacation I could have used in November.  PM me for more.

The number one thing that has played a major role in our moose hunts is the weather. I have not had a chance to hunt bulls in washington, but the few times I have gone up to BC and hunted them the weather had everything to do with the rut.  If it was hot weather we saw nothing, as soon as we had a freeze it was moose on! I will be on the hunt with my grandfather this year as he too drew the Selkirk A tag. Im hoping the weather is going to be right for the opener  as it would be nice to get it done earlier in the season. Good luck on your hunt and good job on drawing a very difficult tag.
