They know you are a redneck when you board the lady of the lake next to the little gal from Seattle and have a deer strapped to your back. LOL

That would be awsome!
I would rather be a conservative nut job, than a liberal with no nuts, and no job!

Even worse, try coming back from the San Juan Islands with a deer on your back.  Talk about getting the eye.  Been there done that.  At least Chelan has a few rednecks. 
Will hunt for food.

I would say no but I'm not certain.  Most of that is wilderness area which is a no wheeled area

Anyone figure out a feasible way to get to the national recreation area? Or is it the same several years later? I understand having to hike but is there a way that it's about 2 miles not too difficult or is the only way 5+ miles of hiking?
I'm not considering any ferries in talking drive, park, hike.

Lol!!! I mean my dad volunteers with national trails association and they make trails where there weren't before. So as far as I knew they could have made a more accessible trail to the area since '09 when this post started.
Thanks for assuming I'm a moron tho  :P  ;)

It's National Park Service land, you have a better chance of seeing a moose in that area than a newly established trail.  :twocents:

I've seen moose tracks and droppings for the last 6-7 years consistently on the north shore of Lake Chelan, and my hunting buddy saw a cow and calf in August of last year. Pretty cool.

Probably better be careful with that comparison there, Tex. We'll have trails in the NPS lands in no time.

I will add to that that a 5 mile hike to access quality high hunt country is the norm. Or even less than the norm.
A 2 mile hike during the high hunt in September would be like a hike to Bellevue Square at noon on a Saturday.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Well maybe not a legally established trail  :chuckle: Anybody who knows the NPS knows it take half a lifetime to get anything approved.

Yea the NPS doesn't have the funds to maintain the trails they currently have.

Hey guys...don't forget Grizzly Bears!!!! they soon will be here too! (ok, there are actually a few already there...but more coming!)

No motorized vehicles allowed inside the National Recreation Area (except the one established road through the Stehekin Valley just before the National Park it cuts through part of the Recreation Area).

All of Domke, Holden, and surrounding areas burned extremely hot a in 2015...Wolverene Creek Fire...so watch for sink holes, blow downs and widow-makers... and no trail maintenance due to "budget" and safety concerns out of the Entiat RD. As for coming in via boat to Lucerne and up to Holden...no problem, just plan for a full day to get to Holden and a full day out...boat, bus, hike/hike, bus, boat...add in that in Sept is still hot out and your in a blackened wasteland for a few more years...but hey, the snow "might" be gone by then...Lyman Lakes has a record snow year!

And honestly, it really is easy to get into the LCNRA...just jump off the boat at Moore Pt, take the lakeshore trail towards Purple Pt and "bingo" your in! Oh, but the deer are just above you, only about a mile or two away...6,000 ft above you! :)

Your better off driving to the top of Snoqualmie Pass and hiking the PCT into the Alpine Lakes Wilderness...

Grade
There's more to life than hunting...there's fishing too!
