The parade has begun.
« on: October 12, 2017, 12:24:32 PM »
 Motorhomes,  fifth wheels,  camping trailers,  tent trailers and truck campers,  all loaded down with gear motorcycles and ATVs  and all heading north on Highway 2/97.  Tomorrow the parade should be in full force

 I find it interesting how many people carry some type of orange (hat, gloves, etc.)on the dash of the vehicle

I thought I had a good spot picked out on the advice of a CNF officer we know but after scouting a few times earlier and falling in love with it there is no way when I show up tomorrow afternoon it won't be a zoo.  He said it isn't heavily used by hunters but that might be relative.

And now I see why hunters are so tight lipped.   Ain't a chance I would give a good spot away.  My biggest fear is driving 3 hours and having some thief parked in my camping spot I spent months picking out.

And this is early season when many stay home waiting for the late season.  The late season circus is good entertainment for sure.

Not sure how anyone can stand having anything remotely reflective on the dash going down the highway.

Circus started this morning when I went up to the woods. Nothing but trailers head east while I headed west :chuckle:.

The spike I saw today standing in the middle of a main road was happy all the muzzle loader elk guys left before noon :chuckle:

It's a bit of a circus, but I enjoy seeing it every year.  Some of the very few days hunters are a highly visible presence on Washington highways.  Not quite like Wyoming small towns erecting meat poles in front of the motels and "Welcome Hunters" banners at the main ingresses, but ...
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

Uughh, Hwy 2 is my only option this afternoon.....   :(

But, I've got four square miles of private land to hunt when I get there.....    :kneel:

 :chuckle:

Going to blow off my son's doe permit for Chiwawa, maybe he can get a nice WT doe or even a buck instead.

Good luck everyone!

I'm headed the opposite way. West with 10 ton of wine grapes.  I came over this morning early and saw plenty of hunters.  I cant believe some of the rigs guys are towing campers with. I'm sure I can watch the east bound  lanes on 90 for the next couple hours and see some doozy set ups. Good luck everyone as long as your not where I'm hunting.  Then bad luck to you

Tomorrow morning you can change this to an hour backup on *insert forest service rd# here*  :chuckle:
To hunt and butcher an animal is to recognize that meat is not some abstract form of protein that springs into existence tightly wrapped in cellophane and styrofoam.
