WA Season for the books!
« on: November 24, 2017, 10:08:28 AM »
My girlfriend and I notched our tags on two beautiful Mule Deer this year. I know most of you have already seen mine but she shot a beautiful 30" wide public land buck! Can't even describe how awesome it was to see her get that caliber of a buck for her first ever deer! I've reminded her multiple times though not to expect that ever year... :chuckle: I was also lucky enough to find a little spike Elk on the last day of the season as well. The freezer is full and I'm thankful for the time I was able to spend in the outdoors with friends and family! The antlers are always nice, but really are just an added bonus looking back on the memories that were made! A season to remember!

Well done!  It helps to have some good tags, but you guys obviously did your homework

As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.
