2018 Youth Deer Hunt Seattle Puget Sound SCI
« on: May 01, 2018, 08:00:56 AM »
Hi Hunt WA members and guests

Thank you to everyone who helped promote our youth hunt the last few years on this forum. We are planning to send another ten youth hunters on a trip to harvest a whitetail doe this fall. The announcement letter is pasted below. Feel free to share with anyone that you think might be interested.

Thank you.
Bob (Bob33)


2018 Youth Hunt sponsored by SPSC of SCI

Over the past three years the Seattle Puget Sound Chapter of Safari Club International has sponsored youth deer hunts in Eastern Washington, where young hunters were given the opportunity to create memories and experience the thrill of hunting. After the great success these past three years, we will once again be sending up to ten fortunate youth hunters on a deer hunting trip to harvest a whitetail doe in Eastern Washington. The hunts will occur during the 2018 Modern Firearm general deer season the weekend of October 13 and 14.

The youths, accompanied by their parent/guardian, will be hunting on a private 500 acre ranch in Unit 108 approximately 20 minutes from the town of Colville, WA. There are multiple blinds overlooking alfalfa fields and timbered areas. Hunters will be dropped off and picked up from the blinds. Although we cannot guarantee harvest, over the past three years these hunts have had a 100% success rate.

The hunts will be for one whitetail doe, and all of the field dressing and skinning will be handled by the host. Lodging and food will not be included but hotels and services are available about 20 minutes away in Colville, WA.

All interested youth hunters are encouraged to apply (Washington defines a youth as anyone under 16 years of age at time of license purchase.) To participate youth hunters must have the following:

- Washington State Hunter Education Card,
- 2018 Modern Firearm deer tag,
- Firearm legal for deer hunting, and
- Parent or guardian willing to accompany the youth on the hunt.

To apply, youth hunters need to email a brief (500 words or less) essay describing themselves and why they would like to take part in this great opportunity.

Applications may submitted through June 30, 2018. Please be sure to include contact information of the parent or guardian in the application.

Once all applications are received, they will be reviewed by a group of SPSC Members and Board Members for selection. The youth hunters who are chosen should expect to be notified by the end of July.

Please email applications to the following address:

It's a great hunt, the guide and landowner are awesome guys and work their tail off to get the kids a quality shot.  If you want a high quality, high probability hunt for one of the best tasting deer you will ever get you should seriously consider applying.

Two week bump. One month to go and there is still room for more applicants.

Spread the word - this is a great opportunity for a youth to harvest a deer.

I just want to say this is really incredible and as my 9 year old son has shown interest in hunting, I will try to get him into one of these once he finishes his hunter safety training.

This hunt is great, if anyone has a first time hunter you need to get them to sign up.

Last week bump.

If you know a youth for applied for a deer permit and didn't draw, here's a chance for the youth to apply for a great hunt opportunity.

It's not too late but time is running out; applications are accepted through June 30.
