North Cascades Weryhauser permit
« on: June 16, 2018, 02:01:47 PM »
This will be my first time with this permit and bow hunting bear.

Is there a lot of bear in these areas?
Anyone else with the permit and want to work together?

Not sure if that was meant as a question or a statement, but I'm new to the area and just looking for advice/help with a bear hunt on these properties.

Thanks,
Josh

I have had the permit for 4 years now.  I purchased my 5th year.  I have yet to pull a bear out in August.  My buddy was able to get one two years ago.  They are out there, but will require some work to get one.  If you could hunt over bait it would be guaranteed.  It's just thick and their are some better areas than what we have available to us through Weyerhaeuser.
If your going to chase them, look in the 2-4 year old clear cuts and glass the berries.  A few spots that look to be prime this season off of HWY 9.

I think they are hard to come by south of 20 as the Indians are using bait right now and they thin them out good.
Cut em!

The fact that they did not send out an email blast to let people know it was open sucks. Was not able to get one this year due to them being sold out so fast. Yes if you put in the time as already stated you can find them. Best of luck to you!

Hey thanks for the info. I plan on being out there multiple times a week, have several trail cams ready, and ready to park the truck and put some miles down.

This will be my first time with this permit and bow hunting bear.

That's why the timber companies are reporting some of the worst damage they've seen, possibly ever? South of 20! Or maybe you have a better line of communication on bears and management than me.....  :dunno:

I'm sure you have the better line of communication.  Not seeing the same amount of damage they are mentioning.  Since it is a learned trait, you may have a few culprits causing a majority of damage.  They need to target those specific bears.  Sierra said the same thing.  Saw lots of old damage.  Along with new damage, I guess it all adds up year after year as you can see the brown trees.

Many of those specific bears have been eliminated this year (not by tribal).

I had the permit last year for the first time. I never saw a bear and I saw very little sign. I mostly hunted up around Lake Cavenaugh, Brook Creek Rd and Jackman Creek. I probably went out at least 30 to 40 days since I live off of Hwy 530. I shot some grouse and saw a few deer but that was it. I saw one buck in August and none during October. I was extremely disappointed to say the least.
I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I'm not!

Two years back a lot of spike deer came out of the Cavanaugh area.  It definitely hurt the hunting for that area last season.
