    Default Wondering that too!!

    I've been out there several times to camp & fish with the family. Have seen spike forks, many grouse, and fox. Believe you have to be a half to a mile off the roads. Also, think you have to be I.B.E.P. certified (I am). Wondering if you can use their trail systems to hunt?

    Alot of road hunters, competition is steep. Also lots of micelanious users who are out and about messing things up.

    If you have a canoe it is not a wast of time at all. I have numerous friends that have shot legal moose out of there by getting as far back as they can with their canoes. Mostly spike/forks, but a couple dandy 50" plus kills.

    Default moose

    Went out there the last opened weekend. Started out great! Driving in we saw a small bull and then, as we started to walk, we saw a cow feeding. Thought we might connect on something, but didn't see anything else the rest of the day. Did see a few grouse, went 0-3 that day. Keep shooting over their backs by an inch or two. Guess cause they were so close. All in all a great day!!!
