I got an attachment online to pull my Cabelas super mag hauler behind my bike.

Sorry couldent send in a pm lol . Anyways this general area . anywhere up behind alot of these cuts around here are good areas . You will find alot of the cuts along the roads have smaller cuts up behind them that the road hunters dont get out and walk to and cant glass from the roads and they hold lots of deer that get pressured out of the cuts during season

Good to know, I found a couple of those more secluded types of cuts a little north of that picture

So I have been doing some more scouting with Gohunt and google earth and have found plenty of spots open for hunting.

My question is are there any decent elk spots in the Washougal unit? The Yacolt Burn is real close to home, and despite the fee it would be easy to access. Does that hold any elk? I am asking just for future reference in case the opportunity arises for hunting elk someday.

Also, could someone who's had experience bow hunting the areas aforementioned above in the previous posts give me an idea of what archery hunting is like out in that area? Is it worth it? I know you can harvest any deer for the early season at least, but I only really want to hunt this area with an archery tag if there's a decent chance at harvesting a spike or better.

I am well equipped both ways as far as modern firearm and archery equipment goes now so it doesn't matter to much which one I choose. I am interested in archery mainly for the lengthy seasons and fewer hunters.

Thanks again for your insight on this!

And a nice flat road!! :chuckle:
You probably know where that pic is taken and the hill you gotta go up and down ! That part right there is the easiest part of that trip ! It's better to have a bike with  disc brakes  :twocents:

Cool way to transport your deer on the cart with the bicycle. Next season, finally I could deliver a dolar to my SUV without any problems.
