247 Unit Entiat Bucks, post em up
« on: June 20, 2013, 04:56:07 PM »
Just got drawn for the Modern Firearm Entiat hunt. 25 permits, 4000 applicants, and ten years worth of preference points later. I finally get to put that wall-hanger mule deer next to my Pend Oreille whitetail. I want to see what kind of buck I can look forward to killing this year November 1st through 20th, 2013. It would be great to see only pics taken during this Super High Quality Hunt. I can't even believe I got drawn for this.

Here is a pic of my 2008 whitetail buck from ne washington. To give you an idea about just how big that body was, my buddy is 6'4", 275lb. That buck was humongous.

To take an Entiat buck like the one shown, you will need to work hard, keep your finger off the trigger and even get a little lucky.  You will see so many great bucks but you might want to hold out for the greatest of the great. 
If you only have a few days to hunt, go home happy with a 150 + rack.  If you have the time and energy to really look, the big one is out there.

I think that buck went right around 190 if I remember correctly. Love that buck.

Cool, do you know the guy? My buddy is supposed to be talking to him at this moment to find out more. I may have to pay a guide. This is truly a once in a lifetime hunt. I plan on hunting as long as it takes. I will only shoot something that I would be proud to get mounted.

Thanks. Have you drawn for this in the past? I'm really looking forward to killing a nice buck.

No but a guy I hunt out of state with drew it about 6 years ago. It was slow til the snow level came way down and then it got good. He took a 27" 4x3 that I would say goes about between 160-170. Also have a couple friends that used to hunt the late archery before they made it draw and they used to see tons of big bucks but a bit tougher to be successful with a bow in your hand. I hope I get a shot someday and I will try again next year with my 12 pts.

Nice, I've only killed two mule deer in my life, one doe and one 5 point. I have the 5 point mounted, but it's nothing special.

Thanks, I keep thinking the same thing about my moose permit. I live and hunt in northeast washington. I have some of the biggest bull moose around just waiting for me to get drawn. Unfortunately, I was 30 when I started putting in, now I'm 43. Those big bulls are starting to look a lot less attractive than the ones that are beside the logging road we're on. LOL

Now that's what I'm talkin' about. What was the gross and net score on that bad boy? Also, how long did you hunt before you put him down? Thanks for posting BTW.

Heres what you do you go to the top of the page and type in Entiat in the search box. Then start browsing thru. Aloth of the bucks have been posted in the past and people get tired of reposting them.

Or maybe the guy is understandably pumped about drawing an awesome tag and wants to talk about it.  I know I would!

I am not saying he can't ask I am saying that alot of times people won't repost it if it has already been posted and thus he won't miss a chance at seeing one that was taken. hello

I definitely understand what you are saying.  I started a thread about the tag I drew, and also did a search and looked at all the old posts.

I killed this one in 2010. Fun hunt, no weather though. I was wearing a long sleeve t shirt most the time.

Do you think I didn't already try that Sky? The problem is that I don't want the bucks that have been killed during the general season or the bow season or the muzzleloader season. I only want special permit rifle deer. I guess I better go read my original post again and edit it as needed.

It is a pretty small pool with your specifics, you are talking about only a few permit holders, not all of them are successful, even less that are successful shoot something over 150 and even fewer post pics of success.  I recall two photos from last year that meet your request criteria.

I shot a 160" a while back when it was an over the counter archery tag close to your timeframe but it was general archery, not permit rifle so it doesn't meet your request.

I am guessing you won't see any new photos.  If they wanted to show what they had they would have posted it previously.  Just doesn't make sense to me that someone would read this post and think "hey I should post that picture of the deer that I shot four years ago for the first time on this new thread."

You should be excited it is a great tag and I hope you enjoy it to the fullest.  I would look at all of the pictures of the deer shot with all weapons and all units around the entiat as motivation and a barometer of what to expect on your hunt.

And remember you can't shoot the big ones if you are skinning a little one, you have to be the judge of what is "big" to you and what has the "wow" factor.

Good luck and I hope to see some photos of success at the end of November. :tup:
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.
