yep, have a paper pass.  went up starr rosd to parking and went out lower road to the end and next day went up to upper road and went to the end and then dropped down to lower road and out.  walked about all of the roads coming off the 2 roads.  mike w

That is your problem right there....you are walking too much.  I just sat watching openings all day and they eventually popped out.   I hunted from Starr Rd.

I agree with deerhuntr.  Get up high on the mountain, pick a big cut and sit and watch it.  There are moose there and they will show themselves eventually, it is just a matter of time.  I filled my cow tag there a couple weeks ago.  Was watching a clear cut to no avail, looked away for a little bit, looked back and bam there stands a cow. They seem to appear out of nowhere.

Its because they have all moved over into ID  :chuckle: Bullblaster and I watched 17 moose last Saturday within a mile of the WA line and mica peak  11 bulls which 5 began to fight over a cow.

I agree the mica unit has really gone down hill since 2010. Nothing like it use to be

Even the moose are getting fed up with Washington's liberal politics. :yike:

It was pretty funny to watch a 3 way bull moose fight. They all had their heads down and pushing each other. I think the cow was just shaking her head.

November rut time is awesome. I've been chasing bucks and stumbled into the big orgy thing with moose.  She must have let out a long cry and every available guy within earshot comes to get some.

Good to hear that you finally got one! I'd hate to see one of those tags go un-filled. Especially for a guy who put in as much time as you did. It should fill your freezer nicely.

  I am 75 and really feel it.  it is tough to walk 12 to 15 miles every day up and down starr road  for 4 days in a row week after week .  I dug some cannas and split wood today and am shot.  it was a fun hunt.  the cow was 10 years old.  thank you,   mike w
