I drew this tag last year (cow) and killed my moose first day. Saw a good bull too. If anyone wants any info let me know.

Boy that is really depressing report.  When I had my bull tag there in 08 it was a fantastic hunt and finding moose was not a problem at all.

One of my co-workers has a bull tag.  I'm sure he wouldn't mind a little extra info.  Feel free to shoot me a PM.

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.

My cousin had that cow tag last year, he hunted hard and never filled his tag. Good luck, I hope you fill yours.

I was with him and we did hunt very hard. I got a Cow there in 2011 and it was incredible. Saw 24 bulls and 6 cows. BUt we were there last year and saw 4 moose total. A mile away from us each time. I know the guy that takes care of the roads and tower area on Mica and he said its not the same as it was. He use to see moose every day. Last year he had gone weeks without seeing moose. Sorry for the downer info but there are still moose there I am sure. Its just not as much of a opportunity provider as it use to be.
I wish you the best of luck. PM me and If you have any questions.

Looks like some spelling lessons are in order too.

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.
