I'll probably get the non motorized permit, I always mountain bike in anyways!

Yes, me too this year.

I bought the motorized this year, but I've barely used it. I like hiking around to scout and to hunt. And anyway, I've found the best hunting in the little road systems that don't have motorized access.

Get a few miles away from the nearest vehicle access inside a big farm like Vail and you'll see a lot of deer.

Seems like there's only one significant area in the whole tree farm you can't drive to... :dunno:

And that area is over run with 4-wheelers and guys without permits in my experience.
Way to many entrances to monitor. And a bunch of that area is not owned by Weyco- lot's of keys in the hands of contractors and others = vehicles driving in every day of the season.

I really wish they would close more roads in more parts of the tree farm, but I doubt it will happen.

I didn't.
I put it toward another Idaho tag with no regrets.
One of my hunting buddies summed it up pretty good. "I've been getting skunked on Weyerhaeuser land for free since 1965. Why pay to get skunked when I can hunt around your house on public ground and see less people and more game?"

PS. I doubt I'll even get a Washington State big game license this year. I did buy the small game for falconry. First time since 1970 I won't have a Washington deer tag in my pocket, so that's how much faith I have in our state to manage our deer heard and arrange access.
