I believe that's the name of the gentleman who owns a bunch of property in the Yakima river canyon area, east side of the highway I believe?

Is that the one with the access fee?
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Eaton ranch spans a lot of the Canyon Road east side of the road from the river.

I hear that's where the big ones are.  Any sheep would be the biggest one on my wall.  Someone would have to hold my bullets to make sure I got a decent sheep.  I wouldn't need the biggest in the unit, just a nice sheep would be awesome.  I would actually try to do it with my bow and would have a muzzy as back up.

A lot has happened this month but the long and short of it is the trial was continued to 2/10/17.  Motions were heard to join the co-defendants and also to release the personnel files of the WDFW employees.  A scheduling conference was set for 1/12/17.

Pennsylvania tag has been filled.  That is according to fellow chuck shooters I correspond with from Pennsylvania.  Sheep tag was filled on Eaton's ranch according to six or eight different people I have spoken to.  IDK anything about the other tags

The Commission just recently revised the rules so that Reichert can't kill a bull in GMU 334 this year...

That didn't clear anything up.  The next loop hole is plain as day with this wording. Technically any unit open for elk hunting is open for bull elk.  Even in an antlerless only unit you could end up shooting a calf bull, so you just legally shot a bull in that unit.  If you could shoot that bull then you could use one of these tags to shoot any other bull.

It specifically lists GMU 334 as not being open. Problem solved. It should have always been that way. But I still don't agree with Reichert exploiting that issue, and claiming that it wasn't clear.

It clears up the GMU 334 confusion but leaves open the possibility of hunting elk in a GMU open to antlerless elk only, because antlerless elk can be bulls.

What units are only open to antlerless elk?
