« on: October 24, 2008, 07:22:45 PM »
Can you hunt in the rattlesnake mountain science area? and theres DNR land off to the left can you hunt it? I was going to hunt in the taylor mt state forest but looks like you can't. >:(

Here's A map of all DNR land in the state

Be very careful in that area the lines are easy to cross.  I dont think you can hunt at Rattlesnake but I could be wrong.  Call this lady she is the fish and wildlife agent that works that area she knows it well.  That is a busy area, Ive always seen 5-7 trucks every time I been by.

Well lets think here are 90 percent of us going to drive to the eastside to hunt for 2 days and drive back and show up at work in your hunting gear? No so why not hunt local and GMU 454 holds like 80 percent of the state's population! thats the good thing about living in Seattle after work I can drive 40 min's and be in a clearcut hunting and then be back in the hustle and bustle of Seattle. Also in units 454 and 460 alot of hunting regulations,private property, and alot of other grey area's!   :P

i agree it''s totally logical...i think the number of posts re: 454/460/other local units around here is just a sign of how big the site is getting and how many people are coming here looking for guidance/help/pointers.

good luck out there.

you need to find access to private land on the north west part of the 454 near the snoho line. i see bucks up there all the time. a buddy who lives right by echo says opening morning is like WWIII in august i got a call sayin DUDE chasing 2 forkies and a tri-by down the river road with my truck!!! guess they just pulled over and let him pass him 5 feet from the road... i saw who i think is the same 3x turn 4x turn 5x the last couple years up there. beautiful deer i heart blacktail!!
