Snoqualmie Forest Deer?
« on: October 19, 2016, 02:11:07 PM »
Hey guys, wanting to get back into Blacktail hunting as my son is starting to reach hunting age.  Looking for areas within an hour of Issaquah.  Thoughts on the Snoqualmie Forest and the Campbell Global permit?  Worth it?  May try to get out a few times this year, but really want to start scouting for next year.  Thanks for the advise, much appreciated!

Lots of stuff to be able to do with that permit. Hunt, fish, camp, firewood. There are deer there. Tough to find, thick country but they are there.

" 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

Did you have any success in there?  I got a permit this year and have been up fishing once on the North Fork but plan to do more exploring before fall.  Hoping to get the dog up there for grouse and it is a fall-back on deer if I don't get one in the Methow during muzzleloader season.

Nature. It's cheaper than therapy.

Get permission from someone close to town. The biggest bucks in that area live in backyards.

At this point the forest isn't even an option. Bear appears to be out for now. Let's hope for some rain before September!
