Nooksack Muzzy Elk!
« on: June 14, 2022, 06:19:56 PM »

Well itís time for me to be that guy. I drew the Nooksack muzzy bull tag Sept 17-28 and Nov 13-30. And Iím not even gonna pretend. Iím looking for secret spots, GPS locations and 400Ē bulls tied to trees😁
Ok. Honestly Iíd be appreciative of any info. But I will make sure the info is reciprocated. Iíve DIYíd moose and caribou in AK plus deer, elk and antelope all over the west. Iím a fireman, but my side hustle has me pretty well connected in the high end optics world. Full disclosure, Iíve never set foot in the unit. I live in SWWA and grew up hunting St Helens and the coast. I can call elk, and Iím in decent shape. May or may not be doing it solo, which Iíve done before.

Iím planning on several scouting trips. But with each trip costing 400$+ in fuel, Iím also not opposed to the option of a reputable outfitter or paying for access if it would be that much of an advantage in animal quality. All things being equal, Iíd prefer to DIY.

Is fire closure a potential issue? Timber company permits to look into? ATVs or Mt bikes helpful for access? Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Buddies wife drew it too, you should be getting a letter regarding the hunt. At least you used to so Iím assuming they still do that!
Shut up and Hunt!

There is a lot of really good looking Elk country in the Nooksack, but Elk aren't in all of those good looking spots. Also you can make this hunt however you want to make it, You can do a lot of driving, a lot of hiking, or sit on private property fields, It can be quite diverse with the hunt or the expectations. I think the most ground you can cover scouting in summer and early sept will help you find the spots you want to hunt in. I don't think an ATV would help, state roads open to traffic, timber lands closed to motorized vehicles. A bike might help you get into locked gated timberlands, but I don't know of any pay for access spots that would be helpful (they might exist, but I am not aware of them). Also, if I had that tag I would plan on having a dead bull in the first 4 days of the season, that is to say, plan on putting the time in and taking days off of work before Sept 17th.

Iíll PM you. Buddy ate this tag last year and was not picky.  The Natives hunt it 9 mo a year.  We did see a couple hawgs on private land and on public land at 300 yards we almost got a shot at.   Plan on scouting a lot.   Great tag but plan on hunting hard.   Its not drive out and pass up smaller ones.
