didnt there are sleeper units  except maybe spokane west and hangman maybe  i just look for what i can get around in

If you are lucky enough to draw a tag in any WA unit, filling the tag should be the easy part. Even being handicapped, I have all the faith that you wouldn't have to worry about filling the tag if you're not trophy hunting. Many people on this forum, myself included, would have no problem helping you out if you are one of the few lucky ones to draw. The reality is most bulls are probably killed within a couple hundred yards of the road, so don't hold back or feel like you can't put in for some of the other units if you'd like to. Good luck to you in the draw! :tup:

in 2006 i drew any moose in 49 degree north, unit 117 i believe it was, with 1 point...yes i am "that guy"-sorry  :chuckle:  we spent 3 days before the opener camped in chewelaw and using enduro motorcycles scouting the area.  opening morning we walked in a gated road that we saw an area that bulls had been sparring...ground was all chewed up and patches of moose hair where everywhere.  we jumped a cow and had 2 different moose in the brush at less than 30 yards but couldn't get a clear shot-figured they were bulls but they moved off before i could identify them.  that evening driving to a spot that we had previously scouted a small bull we had a cow cross the road followed by a bull.  he just stood on the side of the road so i figured he was big enough and dropped him with a high shoulder shot from my buddies 338.  he measured 43 1/2 " and with the "pack out" i couldn't resist.  only regret was not shooting him with my bow i had with me as he was only 40 yards away but quartering and loading him into the truck sure was easy.  got him to the butcher and the quarters hung at 550 lbs.  wife wanted to do a shoulder mount but we didn't have enough room in the house so i got a euro.  can't wait for the new house to be completed to hang him back up.  he had a fresh scar down his nose and a broken rib from rutting.  funny thing was one of the guys that was with us scouting had to leave before the hunt and ran into someone at a dinner party who also had that tag.  He told him about the smaller bull we saw and the approximate mile marker on the road.  a couple days later that tag holder was driving up that same road around the same mile marker when he saw a vehicle pulled over.  he got out to see what was going on and the couple in the vehicle was taking pictures of that same bull moose just off the road drinking in the creek.  that tag holder went back to his truck, got his gun and shot that moose right there.  yes it can and does happen with limited points

I'll have 20 points this year. But have had my cousin draw his first ever year putting in. Another year my dad and brother both got drawn and they weren't partners. You just never know when it's your time to get lucky.

First Timer:   With 20 points you are a heck of a lot better off than a guy with just a few points.   
That's 400 ping pong balls in the hopper.  Best of luck👊💥👊

Only 4 people? I think there's a whole lot more people than that who have been applying for moose since the point system started and haven't drawn. I'm thinking maybe more like 4 hundred people.

The reality is most guys/gals will never draw in Washington because there are too many hunters and not enough tags. If you really want to kill a moose, apply in Idaho. The tag and license is around $2350, but I drew a tag my second year applying. Some of there units are better than 1:4 for non-resident draw odds. :twocents:
I drew my first year. In a great unit where only 7 non residents even applied. This unit give a tag to non residents yearly.

My son drew with one point when he was 9yrs old. The odds are always there for you if you keep playing
