The parade has begun.

 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.
It's a TIKKA thing..., you may not understand.

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.
