Keep after it.  Gets better as time goes on.  I saw two 130 class bucks rutting this morning.

Seen 4 nice bucks last Wednesday on Private Land down there. Wasn't able to get permission for that land.


I'm heading to 133 if I get a chance to hunt. I remember seeing a lot of deer on public land up there I the past.
2018-2019 bird count:
ID:11 grouse, 8 doves
WA:2 grouse

Drew a tag for the 342-364 units? PM me if you want Info
No longer a WA resident and not sad about it.

Headed over tomorrow. First buck draw for me of any kind in last 10 years. Hopefully I'll find a good buck. My son drew this a couple years ago and we hit it too early, no choice as he was still in HS football and only had 1st weekend free with the bye week. Couple buddies went the next weekend and did really well. I heard that Blue Tongue has hurt the numbers, but gotta give it a try!

Not much going on right now. Saw a few active scrapes in several different spots. This guy didn't even get out of himself bed to check out the doe that walked by.

I was also around Colfax this weekend and saw very few deer.
