Pop's Drew A Moose
« on: June 15, 2022, 04:57:11 AM »
   Hey guy's,
  I hate sounding like the idiot but I have to ask. My dad drew a Douglas late bull moose tag and and I might as well be hunting moose on Mars for as much as I know about that area.
 So if anybody could, at least, point me in the right direction to start, it would be greatly appreciated. Any little tidbit would be helpful.

Scout it with boots on the ground

Look at the WDFW Hunting Prospects for that region.

About a 1/4 of that unit is public land I believe? I'd first identify where you can and cannot hunt on a map then put your boots on the ground.
Where else in the Constitution does it say "shall not be infringed"?

Did Donald Trump hurt your feelings? Let me get you a tissue.

Lots of area to hunt even though it is listed as private.  Hancock owns a majority of the habitat but is usually wide open for hunting.  About the only time they restrict it is during extreme fire danger.  Seem to see less moose in the unit over the last 10 years because of wolves, but they are still there.

lots of area to hunt and like mentioned lots of Hancock. Hunt the clear cuts you will see moose. My buddy has some giants on cam this last year that were never taken.

   I was just looking at the Hancock Forest Management site and they don't list any property over there. Is that Hancock land "Pay To Play" like it is on the west side? Or just open?

Do yourself a favor and get OnX.  Lots of Hancock land, ownership is listed in many different names for stockholder/tax/corporate reasons all unbeknownst to me.  If ownership listed looks like a corporation and the land has been nuked, then it is Hancock Insurance/Hancock timberland.  So far there is no access fee in this neck of the woods, just as I stated above, restricted during extreme fire danger by their foresters, can't have the stockholder's money burn up.  Inland Empire Paper does have land farther north and that does have an access fee.

Late Douglas tag 2015.    Great to have help on this hunt. Hunted 12 days and saw several bulls.
