Didn't think I would ever draw but after 21 years my number finally came up.   Lots of homework to do now.

They had a really bad winter kill on young deer, but I think it's going to be a good year for bigger bucks, been a wet spring that will keep their food supply real strong late into the summer. May not be as many bucks but I think you'll have a chance at a nice buck. Congratulations!

Yeah I hope so.  I'm sure last winter cut into the numbers some but after 21 years of waiting will just have to get after it and see what turns up.  Hunted 224 off and on during general but need to figure out a plan for Nov.

Congrats.     That's a fun hunt.  Had the tag back in 04.   Saw 80 bucks in 2 days.    Probably a little shy of that now but had an awesome experience.     Good luck👊💥👊

elkpack- I'll be joining you.  Can't believe I finally drew.  I believe we coordinated on the goat hunt a few years ago when I was "guiding" for Dan-O's son.  Let's stay in touch.

I drew in 2013 and couldn't go over until the second weekend because my brother John (Fishseeker) Murphy was at the time in the hospital in a coma and we lost him that Friday morning. I went over Saturday, got up Sunday morning and dropped a nice 5x5 within and hour. We were on the Methow Game Range off SR 20 above the Upper Beaver Creek Road. There were at least 8 big 4x4 or better within 800 yards of each other in a light snow. Very easy hunt. This should wet your appetite now. Good luck. They are there and once in a while you get lucky and they come easy. :chuckle:

First off, congrats, I agree with mkcj with the exception of.....we found a few big fellas that didnt make it either. Its gonna be tough in the Methow  for the next 3-4 years in my opinion :dunno:...Been seeing some, but no where near what it once was.Found three big 4,s and a dandy 5x6 that didn't make the spring sun. It will be a tough tag this year I'm afraid. Hunt hard, stay close to timber and hunt the first 10 days of November for this year(IMHO) :tup:...this herd has taken a beating, its not down for the count but its in need of a breather....

Thanks for the input guys and congrats to the others that drew.  I always assume they will be tough hunts but excited to see what happens after the long wait.

Probably about the worst year ever to draw, but maybe luck will be on your side.  I didn't even apply this year, it's that bad and I'm pretty sure I won't spend much time there with a camera other than for reminiscence sake, or time in old haunts.  It is still a good time to be in the woods and the chance of excitement....
