Was interested in this unit, more what the terrain is like and what access permit is needed. Thanks for any help  :)

No deer in that unit.  Poachers got 'em all.   ;)

I am a transient hunter there.  The majority of the unit is essentially flat plateau, 200 - 300 ft in elevation (with some notable hills topping 500 or more feet), slightly sloped in places and marked with steep ravines/edges along watercourses and the shores of Puget Sound and Hood Canal.   The entire region shows significant scarring from glaciation, and the remaining small geographic features are remnants of that period.  You can get a great idea of the geography of the area here: http://lidarportal.dnr.wa.gov/

Much of the timberlands are owned by either DNR, Manke Timber Co., or Green Diamond Resources.  The majority of those areas are open to hunting, though you might find some areas posted during the fire season or for some other unknown reason.  The areas in the SW corner near Matlock may require you to purchase a pass to hunt. 

There are a lot of hunters working/cruising most of the areas so it can be quite crowded in some areas, but I think if you get out of your vehicle and bike or hike back a ways, you'll find solitude.  The overall lack of significant terrain changes means that bucks can be about anywhere that it is thick and brushy - which is everywhere.  The entire area is heavy in Evergreen Huckleberry growing up to eight feet tall, so finding an animal is very difficult from ground level in standing timber.
