Special Permit Bucks, Post Pics from past years!
« on: June 26, 2017, 04:40:13 PM »
I thought it would be cool if people might share pictures of bucks harvested under a special permit. Please post a pic or two, tell us what unit, year, tag type, anything else you want. Maybe this will cause me to actually start applying for special permits instead of saving for some dream hunt somewhere.

Right right! I'll stay out of that game for now. Thought there would be more takers here. I suppose I'll have to use the darn search function to individually find pics of permit bucks on here. I just wanna see what kind of animals people take in those late hunts.

Why bother with the low odds of a special permit draw in WA?   I choose to promote the general season tags. :chuckle:  It's a lot more fun shooting them early and making those permit holders work for their buck.

Jeez that buck makes me giddy.  They don't get much better here.

Great buck, especially for general season. :tup:

@crabcreekhunter:

Those are all amazing. Thanks for sharing. That two point thingy is interesting; I wonder if it's actually pretty old and might be regressing a bit.

He was super old wouldnt have made it through the winter, teeth are almost gone but was rutting really hard, about a quater inch shy of the 30" and 6.5-7" bases.  Neat old warrior!

That's cool man. Your experience speaks for itself. I've been questing after a mule like any one of those for a grip. I think whitetails are much easier to locate and pattern.

@Griiz that's an insane WA buck.  What is it, 6 by 8"? If you get a chance let us know if that's a special permit buck or OTC. Thanks for sharing.

This is a great thread to get folks pumped for hunting season.
This is my one and only special permit buck. November 2010 in the Tucannon.

Awesome buck!   But I gotta ask....why does his top notch look like a poodle? or is it just this pic?

I think you're looking at his knee above the bucks forehead. That is a stud buck.

His head was like a goat. Short and wide. He was an old and ugly buck.

Incredible buck Griiz! Congrats! I thought the same thing about his top knot in but its just a carhart clad knee that makes it look like that in the pic.
