No huntable whitetails on the wetside.  Blacktail only... 

Every unit has its advantages and disadvantages..  Do you want high country hunts?  Hunt the brush?  Hunt the clearcuts?  etc. and so on...

Do some research on the WDFW website, look at success rates, etc.... 
By my honorable conduct as a hunter let me give a good example and teach new hunters principles of honor, so that each new generation can show respect for their god, other hunters and the animals, and enjoy the dignity of the hunt.

Calling an illegal alien an 'undocumented immigrant' is like calling a drug dealer an 'unlicensed pharmacist'.

You're getting a late start.......better start scouting in all your free time.  Thats a big part of success.

Vail tree farm...
To hunt and butcher an animal is to recognize that meat is not some abstract form of protein that springs into existence tightly wrapped in cellophane and styrofoam.

I will say it again, Vail tree farm
Easy access, lots of roads, lots of clear cuts, some deer although mostly spikes and forkies, lots of people to move the deer around, lots of people road hunt it so getting out and walking, still hunting or getting to a good vantage point by foot should be productive...Classic old school blacktail hunting in logging areas..
I will admit i have never been there though...

I dont mind helping people out especially on a forum like this, we're all here to learn but I feel like you're asking everyone to help and aren't willing to put in much if any research on your own... Do yourself a favor and get familiar with the search button, wdfw harvest reports, google and google earth. If you have specific questions feel free to PM me but asking where an easy spot to go kill a deer seems like too much to me.

I agree Vail is a great place to tag out on a deer.

no, just trying to say its easy for people to tell you havent done much research. you could learn alot from just reading the regs if you havent done that id start there. its hard for you to get the information your looking for because people had to work for what they know and want someone to have to do the same atleast mostly. have you taken hunters ed?

There is good deer hunting all over the west side it just takes time and effort to find these areas.  We are willing to help out but I think a lot of us almost think your being too pushy and demanding on the information we have. Spent a lot of time and money finding.
