Ok lets say you could pick one permit to draw.  What would it be and why?  Keep this one to deer, we'll do the elk on the other forum.

I think he's talking about a special permit...like desert a or the like.

i'm gonna say a late swakane rifle tag, because i've seen the results of what that tag can produce a couple times now. :drool:

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

If I had to pick one it would be the Desert, just because it's a different type of terrain than all the other mule deer hunts, and I think it would be a fun hunt. Besides, it's the most difficult deer tag in the state to draw, so if I'm choosing it may as well be that one.

I want that darn raffle tag.
The desert tag would be fun, but I've been applying for Alta for years

You had your chance hoser.  If you were to draw that in the next 5 years, there would be a revolution in Washington state, and it would all be headed your direction. :)

Alta is the west side of the Methow.  The Twisp River borders it to the north.  It used to be a tremendous late season deer hunt for archery, but I think they canned that a few years ago.  It was a unit they put to draw only for about 3 years and it grew some monsters.  Some of the sheds I found were unreal from that time period.  It gets hammered in the general season, I MEAN HAMMERED.  It does however get some migratory bucks, some out of the Navarre country along eastside of Chelan.  Its just like any of the other good tags, harder than hell to draw.

I would have to say probably the raffle tag, that would open up some country that doesn't have the late hunts.  Desert is intriguing but is it really that good?

Man I wish they would reduce the number of late modern tags in the Methow and add some archery opportunity for some of us.  I send them E-mails every single year and they ignore me.  I don't understand why they raised the tag levels for modern and shafted the archers.  15 for the entire Vally would be fine with me just give me a chance!
