Hey guys! I'd be a first generation hunter and I want to go hunting this year. I'd appreciate some help on where to hunt.
A bit about me :
Open to driving a while. I live near Seattle.
I'd like to hunt a forested area with a creek where I can walk a lot. but obviously, it doesn't need to fit that exact standard.
open to bow hunting turkey, coyotes, and deer

a question i've got too is how do I know if i'm in a hunting area? might sound kind of dumb but I don't know anybody that hunts so if you've got any extra advice, id appreciate it.

Says your in Bremerton
Bowhunt deer
Recommend you cross hood canal bridge
Follow signs/maps up into Olympic National Forest
Find some side roads park and walk
Donít leave any valuables in your vehicle
Pretty easy
Get a Washington map gazetteer at sportsmanís  Warehouse in Silverdale
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.


What would life be without the thrill of the hunt ?

Iím assuming youíve already completed hunters Ed... You need to pick up the game regulations or look them up on WDFW website so you know the seasons and figure out for example what GMUs are open for deer hunting. Your profile says your located in Bremerton so look at GMUs on the Olympic peninsula for blacktail deer season. Keep in mind you need to know what weapon your going to hunt with then figure out where the public land is to hunt or in a lot of cases in western Washington there are tree farms where you can buy a permit to access there land to hunt. You can use an atlas, apps for your phone such as OnX maps, USFS maps, DNR maps etc. Iíd suggest downloading onXmaps onto your smart phone and starting there.

Hey all! First time hunter here, planning to go out for deer in E Wa.  Got my archery tag yesterday, and have a spot to stay lined up near Twisp for Sept 9-13. GMU's 224 (Perrygin), 233 (Pogue), 239 (Chillitwist), 231 (Gardiner) and 242 (Alta) will all be in easy driving distance.  Not looking for anyone's honey hole, but some general guidance as to where to go looking around? Any tips would be appreciated!

Hello!

I've been doing some research on Grouse Hunting and looking for suggestions on where to get started. I've grown tired of the crazy pressure that public lands near Seattle get for duck/goose season so hoping that branching out and hiking can help me find some of the private hunting time i'm looking for. I've been trying to get a feel for where I can walk logging roads and trails that aren't going to be either inaccessible without prior permission or filled with hikers. I'm out in issaquah and hoping to stay on the west side if possible?

I'm taking my boy (15) for his first deer (Doe). I want to hunt unit 124. We are staying at the Antler Motel in Newport. Is there any place on Blanchard Road to get a Doe? We hunted around Newport last year and couldn't even find a doe on public land. Hunting sure isn't like it used to be. Oct. 17-19 General season. Thanks you guys!

Hey all!  First time blacktail deer hunter here.  I have been hunting whitetail and mule deer in E. Wash. my whole life, but never blacktail in W. Wash.  Any thoughts on where to go around the Snohomish area?  Any tricks to the hunt?  Thanks for the time.
