youth first deer hunt
« on: October 03, 2016, 06:33:11 AM »
this is my childrens (12 and 14) first year to hunt for deer, we live in SW washington, wanting to hunt whitetail on the east side.

looking for any recommendations on areas,units, i am not familiar with the east side at all, but i would love for the kids to be able to use their binoculars and spot some deer and possibly get a shot.  i heard a good area around republic and crawfish lake but also heard that it was on fire and is not so good for this years hunt, looking for any deer really not buck or doe specifically, just a whitetail deer.
im not wanting a secret spot, but tips on units to focus on, I'm ok with driving across the state if that is what it takes.
feel free to pm me or whatever, i don't want anyones secret spot, i do not have a tag, this is just for the kids...

cery few whitetail in those units and even less public land. You need to go farther east towards the blue mountains, Palouse, or up arournd Spokane/ colville.

 :yeah: ne corner units hold a good amount of whitetails. There are some options for spot and stalk but best bet to kill a whitetail is stand hunting which could be tougher with kids and boredom.
