Another Weyco/St Helens tree farm ???
« on: August 02, 2020, 11:20:50 AM »
So I did something I swore I would never do, I paid to play on Weyco's St Helens tree farm. I've been studying the map they sent and noticed there are a lot of gated roads inside the main gates which I thought was cool, I like hiking/biking in behind gates. Well, I had a few hours of free time and went for a drive this morning to check out the area and do a little scouting, I drove by about a dozen gates and everyone was open, just wondering if they're all open and stay open or if I keep looking will I find any closed gates? slightly disappointed if that's the case.

The scouting part didn't disappoint, saw some elk, saw some deer including a very nice buck and a porcupine, not a bad 4 hour drive.

They will all stay open.

And yes, it's disappointing. Worst part of the whole permit thing imo.

Only roads that are not open are in areas on the map marked with red slashes.

I believe even the locked gates can be accessed by WEYCO employees. Not positive but that's how it used to be.

Only if they are working behind them . Employees have to get a permit like everybody else .

Thanks. Good to know. Some years ago, I was hunting either WEYCO or Hancock and the roads were gated but the employees had access. That was discouraging after a 3 or 4 mile hike.

I personally think its still the same
Keep the wind in your hair, and the sun at your back.


A gun is a tool, Marion, no better or no worse than any other tool, an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that.

Fine figure of a man, yes?
That is all you need to know."
