Mason 633 Unit. Is it worth the time and drive?
« on: October 25, 2012, 02:31:34 PM »
Has anyone hunted the Mason 633 Unit this year? I was thinking about heading out that way this weekend but havnt been up there but maybe twice while jeeping at tahuya. Is the deer hunting any good out there? Or is there somewhere closer to home that would be a better choice?

First, do you know its firearm restricted? Not to be a smartass just incase you didn't know and don't have a shotgun or muzzleloader.

I live in the unit, quite a few deer but lots of hunters... I hunt neighboring units if that tells you anything. I do get deer come into my yard and they come off huntable land to get there, of course they don't show up until dark.

Not all of it is restricted though, the highway 3/ agate.belfair area is open to rifles.

But to be honest, it really isn't worth the drive.

Correct, I've never even stepped foot in the woods up there so I never even think of that as mason unit.

I guess its a tough call on if its worth the drive or not. I drove your direction last weekend to hunt. If you know some spots around here to go it might be worth a shot, I do believe we probably have more deer.

Vail is the biggest joke ever, unless you're a lazy piece of dump that can't walk a few miles, which I doubt you are. So go for it! the only reason I said it isn't worth the drive is because I don't want it to turn into Vail.  :chuckle:

 :chuckle: I agree we just walked a few trails back away from everyone and came out on a clear cut and just sat there for hours glassing the clear cuts and watching everyone drive around. It's pretty rediculous. Im from ohio and grew up in a tree stand hunting white tail and when i started hunting here last year we went to vail because we were told thats the place to be on the west side and that place i a joke. I have never seen anything like that in my life. Im staying here in washington after getting out of the military a couple months ago so im trying all different areas till i find a decent spot.

There is plenty of vehicle traffic here too, so don't think you will be alone.

I was just out at one of the gates by my house, it's been locked the last couple years I figured that was the new norm but it's open with a green dot. Bummer.
