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.

I drew that tag about 8 years ago.  I pulled out a wide 57+ inch moose.  You will have a blast get over there and scout.  Miles creek is a good spot to look up and there a huge bowl to glass in.  LOTS of moose...   There is also many closed gates as well which is good to check out as well.

You mean Mill Creek? :dunno: I live up here there is no Miles creek. Yup Mill creek holds some awesome moose. Also check out north and south baldy and up the east branch of LeClerc rd all the way to the top holds good moose. I would spend much time north of Bunchgrass Meadows off of the middle branch of CecLerc creek not nearly as many moose. Also great hunting above bead lake.

It has been a while since I have hunted it...  BUT you hit the spots that the State Biologist told me to go and find them.  You might also want to bring your mountain bike as that is a good quick way to get behind the lock gates.

I had the tag in 2009, killed a 45" wide bull with triple brows on both sides.  I spent lots of time scouting the area, like most every weekend throughout the summer.  Listen to the advice you got here, and don't bother calling the biologist, the spots he will give you are the same three spots he gives everyone else who calls him.  My biggest piece of advise would be to be patient, don't let the tag burn a hole in your pocket and have fun.  Be aware there are more grizzlies in the area than the F&G either admits or knows about.  Nothing to be scared of, but be aware of it.   Good luck and come back here and tell us all your story after your done.
I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.

Its really exciting when you are sitting there calling and you hear a twig snap behind you.  You turn your head and there at about 30 feet is a Grizz eyeballing his next meal.  :chuckle:   The longbow doesn't seem like such a good idea at the time.

You should have no problem killing a moose in Oct and still making it to the Entiat in late Nov. No need to scout for deer if you already know the area. The deer will be moving in there with some weather. Good luck on both hunts. Looking forward to stories and pictures.

You've been given some great advice from some locals!  Above Bead Lake all the way to the Idaho border, above Marshall Lake, LeClerc Ck area all hold huge moose and they're easier to find that bucks!  There are also a lot of moose around Yokum Lake though I'm unsure how much of that land is huntable.   Heading further north, Sullivan Lake area also holds some great moose, as well as a good population of Grizzly.  Another option would be to head into Idaho, camp on the north end of Priest Lake, ID.  Hwy 57 turns into a dirt road (USFS road 302) about 6 miles north of Nordman, ID and then goes back into Washington shortly after that.  Once in Washington there's some really large moose in that area, especially around "Hughes Meadows."  Don't let F&G fool you into believing there aren't many Grizzly or that there aren't any on the south end...there are!  I'd also suggest having a cougar tag in your pocket too.  They're in there as well.

Thanks for the info.  I went up there last weekend and covered some ground.  Talked with some locals and met a guy on the hill that gave me great info.  We saw quite a bit of game.

Looking for a thread with Selkirk moose pics and can't seem to find many pics!  There are probably few because the number of tags that are given out.  Put em up if you have some please!

You can go to Lake Sullivan (I could have misspelled it)  but they ranger station there has a computer which they showed me of all the grizzly's they had collared and monitored.  The ranger told me those bears came from Yellowstone.  This would be good to see where the bears are so you know where to be careful.

BTW, those bears were put there because they did not act well in Yellowstone.

BTW, those bears were put there because they did not act well in Yellowstone.

They also put way more than they should have, into a very small territory.  That's why they've been moving south.  I grew up 7 miles outside of Newport.  The year I graduated high school, 1987, we had a couple of grizzlies in our pasture...lol.  There's been several sighted around the Deer Park area as well, for the past several years.

I ran into one on a bow hunt in Montana one year.  Definitely a little more intense than seeing a black bear in the wild.

Make sure that you have a good map or gps if you head into that Nordman Idaho and then off 302.  The Nordman road winds in and out of Idaho and believe me there are griz in there, ive seen them many times!  I've also seen huge bulls in there and a few sporatic Elk in those areas.

In early November saw numerous bulls from the 1920 rd. and shot a 46 1/2 bull. Got there by driving up the cee cee ah rd.

the longer you wait the worse the weather and there is a chance of a big snowstorm which would shut everything down.   I dislike fog the most.   it is a tough choice of what time to go and I wish I had to make that choice.  good luck and have fun.   mike w

Ya.  Trying to get a bull elk tag done now in peaches.  Called a couple in for him just couldn't close the deal.  One to small and one needed a couple more steps.  Seeing quite a few and hearing a few, but ya just a warm up for the moose hunt!!! Can't wait!

Great excersise for you before your big hunt. I've heard quite a few reports of bugling bulls. The weather change must be helping a little. This is the first time in 8 yrs I'm not in the elk woods with my bow. Miss it more than I thought I would.
