I'm seeking advice/tips for the SINLAHIKEN GMU 215 unit
« on: December 06, 2017, 06:04:30 PM »
  Hello,
I am seeking advice, tips, pointers, "tales of experience" regarding filling a tag in the SINLAHEKIN GMU 215 unit. 

I have never hunted this unit and I am interested in any advice I can get.  I have driven through the area several times in the past and I have been studying maps, google earth, and searching for general hunting info on the unit.  This will be my meat hunt of the year and I would be happy to take any legal deer I can get. 
 
Thanks in advance to any and all replies.

With the state of the EA WA deer herds, I think most people are gonna be tight lipped, plus it doesn’t help this is your first post. :chuckle:

Yes I had searched the forum before posting.
  I have gained a few good pointers and I think I will be just fine.  I am not a road hunter and I am pretty confident that I can fill a freezer.
Thanks for the info BOSS.300 WINMAG

Lots of deer
I saw 500 in a 4 day archery trip
490 were on private land
Late archery
I wish I had chains or an ATV saw quite a few nice mule deer hanging
Very icy

Good luck the numbers are really sad, and most of the white tails won't ever leave private ground. And permission is near impossible to obtain

anywhere on the valley floor really. They like them thick brushy areas.
