Listen to hunter399 guys.  I have a cabin on buck creek rd.  There are a minimum of 5 bears a day on my property.  Across the road from my place is 1000's of acres of timber company property that is feel free to hunt.  I have never hunted bears but plan to this fall since I did not draw for spring.  Feel free to hit me up for help for you guys that get a bear down.  I am up there most weekends and would love to get some hands on experience with a bear.  Good luck to everyone that drew.

Appreciate the feedback. Looking forward to my first spring bear hunt

Is all the timber company’s feel free to hunt in this unit? All “no motorized vehicles” as well I would presume?

As long as you follow all access rules .
There is one that really doesn't allow access is vaghin bothers lumber and arden tree farms .
Most of them that do allow access ,just go to there website for rules.
Generally if it's gated or tank trap/Kelly hump then it's a walk in only.
Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

Buck Creek is accessible year round essentially (to the gate). Walk in only after that but unfortunately you'll see a lot of people driving their ATV's and dirt bikes around the gate once the snow melts. Good luck!

The guy I witnessed getting ticket,he had kids,and wife all on different machines and the warden was giving tickets for each one.

That’s good. I wonder do you know how early in the year can you usually access the roads that drive to the top of the hills such as behind the ski resort or to the north?

Usually in late May they are for the most part clear but then you circle around a shaded north slope and run into impassable chunks even at lower elevations. I'd imagine some of those sections will hold on late since we got solid snow pack this year from what I can tell.

I'm one of the lucky tag holders. Did a little looking around over the weekend. The few roads I drove I ran into either a lot of trees down or snow on the roads. I'm wondering if anyone has been seeing anything promising. Was mostly around Chewelah.

I went out last week to do some scouting and turkey hunt. Called in a tom for my buddy, and found where there was some really nice grass. The rain this weekend will help a lot. Starting next week I'd imagine we will start seeing bears hit the deck.

It’s nice to know there’s a decent amount of snow. I have dreams of throwing meat on a snow drift somewhere.

Agreed on the rain. I bet the green up will start this week and they will be out and about more. We are hoping to buzz up this weekend for a look around

Vaagen Bros, Riley Creek and Stimson Timber companies are not allowing ANY recreational access to their lands this year from what my forest service rep told me. I’d be very cautious about getting caught on any of their lands especially with a motorized vehicle. All of the Stimson and Vaagen gates in my area have new signs stating such. Good luck.
I’m surprised westsiders can stop suckling Inslee’s teat’s long enough to come hunt our game on the dry side.

Nothing on their website about this. I'm gonna be pretty upset if this is the case. Vaagen controls access pretty tightly, but I was planning on hunting one of those companies land pretty hard. Hope that's not really true  :bash:
