Congratulations on a successful hunt, wouldn't have wanted to spend 25 years trying to get the tag and then have the hunt end on the first day.  the moose are out there, but the predators have definitely made them change their habits.  Snow on the ground really helps on locating them.  Hopefully I will be able to draw in the next 10-15 years while I can still get around.

Moose are a lot easier to spot when the leaves are off the trees and maybe a bit of snow on the ground.  Don't have to compete with the yellow jackets and flies either.  Douglas is a good unit with a lot of the proper aged clearcuts.  Look for spots where you can glass into the cuts that have 8-12' alders/willows from a distance.  With the leaves off you will be able to spot the ubiquitous "4x8 sheet of black plywood" easily a mile away with binos.  Then it is just a matter of picking the correct road to get closer, which is sometimes harder than spotting the moose.  You'll get your cow :)

Caseknife:   Hope you draw soon. Appreciate all the help you gave me.  This is one of favorite all time hunting pics :tup:

Congratulations awesome looking cow moose  :tup:
"When my bow falls, so shall the world. When me heart ceases to pump blood to my body, it will all come crashing down. As a hunter, we are bound by duty, nay, bound by our very soul to this world. When a hunter dies we feel it, we sense it, and the world trembles with sorrow. When I die, so shall the world, from the shock of loosing such a great part of ones soul." Ezekiel, Okeanos Hunter
