Original plan: focus on Deer with applications in WY/ID/WA/OR/CO and some OTC elk in Sept/Oct as time permits.

Actual plans: total strike out on deer but drew Washougal ML cow elk (muleyhunter69 got my Norway pass tag I see) and ML elk in Idaho. So, instead of lots of deer hunting with a little elk in between, now it's almost 4 months of elk hunting with some OTC deer thrown in.

3rd week of August- cow elk hunt in Wyoming

1st week of October- Controlled bull elk hunt in Idaho

Modern firearm deer and elk in SW Washington whenever I can fit it in. That's all I know for now. Other hunts in Idaho and/or Wyoming might be possibilities, but as always depends on vacation time and money I have at the time.

I always do enjoy my time with nature. My last couple of trips were with a bad hip and painful. Got the hip fixed last year (and missed hunting altogether). Hopefully, I'll be in great shape by September. I do need some meat in the freezer. It's been too long since I've eaten my last elk.

WA: East side trespass deer hunt Oct 20th - 22nd.
ID: Whitetails Nov 24th - 30th
ID: Unit 52 December bull elk hunt (Draw Tag) Dec 4th - 14th.

First year in a long time (I think 2008) that I won't be going out of state for mule deer.

On the fence of buying an Idaho deer and wolf tag. Would be able to shoot a nice white tail out the office window.

Drew a Palouse buck tag but probably won't have very much time to hunt wa this year.

My Dad and I will be hunting deer (and hopefully antelope - draw results late July) in SE Montana. We can shoot mulie or whitetail bucks. Will buy OTC doe tags too.

I drew a late season Lake Pearrygin tag so will spend my November prowling for a good buck.

I may make a weekend run to the NE corner for elk if I havve time.

November = Eastern Montana mule deer hunt with a few buddies. Hopefully I fill 2 tags and fill the freezer. My wife is getting a little annoyed with the lack of game meet in the house.
