Youth hunt draw help..please
« on: February 11, 2018, 04:54:48 PM »
Hello I am looking ahead and am going to put my son in for some youth deer and elk hunts. He will be 12 during hunting season.  We live west side.  Thinking both hunts for mudflow elk and some antlerless hunts up around my moms in klickitat co. Any thoughts should I try others ? How many can you put in for? Iíve never put in for any hunts. Thanks for the help

There arenít really a lot of good choices for elk but for deer he can apply for the youth hunts, antlerless, and 2nd deer, plus of course the quality and buck categories. Depending on the permits you choose to apply for, you may want to apply for only the point option, as you probably donít really want him to draw multiple permits. My daughter is also 12 and Iíve been going over all the possibilities, and I decided to only put her in for a youth doe permit, and Iíll do the point option for all the others.

Attached is an Excel spreadsheet of the 2016 youth elk permit hunts. It includes draw odds and harvest.

I'd have him apply for both deer and elk. The hunts with higher success are generally harder to draw. The mudflow hunts are highly successful but difficult to draw. Another consideration is access. Some of the hunts like Skagit are in areas with very little or no public access. That means you'll need to probably need to know someone or knock on doors. However, youth have a greater chance of getting access.

He only has a few years to apply, so going for the hunts with low odds like Mudflow will probably mean he won't draw as a youth.

You can apply for up to four hunt choices.

Good luck.
Nature. It's cheaper than therapy.
