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

It was a tough hunt!  My wife had a tag as well!  Any moose.  Took the first 9 days of season off, then hunted weekends from then on.  Finally got it done on November 11!  We only saw 6 moose, couple young Bulls, 2 cows and a calf on mica.  The moose numbers seem to be WAY down!

Pretty sad to see what the mica unit is now. that bull was the norm up there 10 years ago and could pass those everyday. I dunno what is causing it. Its not wolves, it may be the quality of forage is the only thing I can think of. Just 2 miles from mica peak as a bird flies east in ID there is a ton of moose! and its every year there is a ton of moose with lots of tags given out on the ID side too.

That's a nice looking bull.  That unit has really fallen off though, I saw and passed on a number of bulls like that in 08.  I'm not sure that unit is even worth applying for now given how far it's fallen.
