New member, moose tag, life is good!
« on: June 20, 2019, 01:16:07 PM »
Long time lurker but figured i should register and hopefully be able to share my hunt this fall. I drew the 49 degrees north late tag with 24 preference points which i think is the maximum since the inception of the points system unless i missed a year applying.  Like others have said i still find it hard to believe i drew an OIL tag. I have some knowledge of the unit, primarily the north east side as i used to hunt whitetail there in the 80' and 90' s but now mostly hunt in 105 kellyhill or the blue mountains for deer. I recently was told that the bulls can start dropping their antlers by the end of november but had never heard of that and was wanting to know if any of you had any knowledge of that? I will try to attach a pic of my buck i killed in 1987 up Tacoma creek that  grossed 174 back when i still had lots of hair since i am now a 60' something bald guy ;) Looking forward to november!

Welcome and good luck on that tag!

Great WT, yes bulls can drop towards the end of November for sure.  If it were my tag I'd take a week early in the season and then have another week planned around the 20th if the first week doesn't plan out. Don't put all your eggs in one basket at the end of the season.

Bulls will start dropping by thanksgiving. I always say pray for snow and then be ready to deal with it.  There are lots of bulls but they are not around every corner. Donít over look the early part of your season, it will be much more accessible to a few good areas. Good luck.

Man that's a nice buck.

49 still has a pretty good count on bull moose. Nothing huge but some decent bulls.
