I'll go up there with you H20, it's right up the road from me. I'll be putting in for it also.  I also like some of the East Side hunts.
I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I'm not!

Can I apply now with my 2017 license which is still good or do I need to buy the 2018 bear tag or bear combo?

Also...again being serious I bet us just to the south will make it harder to draw. Skagit is the closest unit....so....sorry.


And it's Northie......sheesh.

Fine.  Try and piddle in my sunshine puddle.  When I draw just be prepared for a "neener neener".

Ps. Good luck on the draw.

Well, I'll be going in with 1 this year, and I fully expect to draw. So theres that.

Who you callin Northy? And donít get you hopes up.  9 points is what it takes to draw Skagit.

I drew the first year I put in, two years ago. Didn't tag out, only two tags filled that year from what I heard. All's I'm saying is, sometimes a guy gets lucky!

A lot of guys donít report so donít trust those numbers. First year I drew there was one bear reported killed mine. When I know at least 4 others that killed bears.
