I didn't buy any but you might try logging into your WDFW account using your WILD ID number. There may be a record of your raffle ticket purchase there, and possibly the numbers.   :dunno:

I have to work today but am heading out tomorrow to do some scouting! Hubby's bringing his bow in case we come across a bear-
and so it begins!

I would say go to Kapowsin but the best time IMO is during the quality deer hunt time for the Mashel unit but you would miss the first part of that hunt because it is closed for the elk season, if you hit it right after the elk season ends it is still pretty good.

they could hunt up until the day of the 6th, they will close it on the 6th is what I'm trying to say.  I would hit it for sure till then.

The crazy thing about the rut is you will see big mature bucks in an area that you never saw scouting. If you find an area with a lot of does in Aug, Sept and Oct, the big boys will show up there in Nov.

It's go time for crowinghen . We have the next 17 days off to hunt her tag . I just wanted to give every body on HW that helped us a big thank you . We spent time in 4 different GMU's scouting and put a hell of a lot of miles on our boots and rig . We've decided to stay close to home for the first part and hunt Kapowsin until elk season . It's the area we know the best , if we don't get it done there then we have 2 other units that we will hunt the remainder of our time off . She was not able to get her a deer on her archery tag so this more than likely will be her first deer . She did get a bear this year and that gave her a lot of confidence for this hunt . Thanks again to all the help .

Can't believe I missed this thread! Can't wait for pics..... So much great advice it looks like you have all the bases covered. If it was my tag the hardest thing for me to do is log sufficient time in a good area. Resist temptation to move to another area quickly while the rut is in full swing. If there is one thing about blackies IMO nearly every unit on the Westside holds a buck like you are probably looking for.  So keep faith if you know the area has the does. The record book only tells part of the tale, tons of great bucks never get entered and even more get away. Best of luck!

Good luck.  That's one heck of a tag to harvest your first deer!  Should be able to find a good one.  We will be anxiously following to see the victory pics.

My three options would be go high early in September, find something west of the crest, heck you might even catch a big mule deer west of the boundary this time of year.  That early November period in the heart of blacktail country, or late in the Klickitat area.  What a great problem to have.  Congrats on the draw.

They are heating up now!  Clouds were on the deck, visibility was poor still saw six bucks in a short hooky day.  One we would have liked to of killed and another nice buck we should of killed.  Even the little spikes were cruising at full speed.  It's about to get REALLY good :tup:  You will have them all to yourself after Saturday...you lucky buggers :chuckle:

They are going nuts in my area. In the last 2 days we I've seen 3 mature bucks down, and heard of 2 others. Good luck, can't  wait to see what you get.

The deer activity on thursday 10/29 morning was probably the most I have ever seen in 27 years of hunting.  We seen deer every where we went. There were three of us and came home with two deer and we passed on 6+ bucks.  At one point there was a 4 point bedded 100yrds from the road.  My wife missed, gun was off after she dropped it while packing her elk out. Good luck with your tag.

We went to the woods yesterday- just a few new rubs. Watched a single doe feeding  in a wind protected area- no buck following her. So we stayed at home today  to let  the season end-- Figured they aren't rutting hard yet in our  scouted areas so we are resting up for hitting it hard this week!  Got the  rain gear out-- So excited!
Hope to get my first deer!
will keep  ya all posted- thanks for the good thoughts!

Ma,am, I gotta say you have the best tag this state has to offer!!alot will disagree with me as alot think some kind of elk would be the best tag, but coming from a guy that thinks blacktail bucks are the greatest quarry ( non leathal) a man or women could ever hunt.. if your husband don't feel like going, pm me, I have the lynch creek Hancock pass and from what seen today the bucks are starting to get a little more active..
