The Mason Unit is not huge. The area on the Kitsap peninsula is even smaller....
For the most part, it is not worth your drive.
These guys hit it on the head, "Tons of trucks, and people".

So if you don't mind Mixing it up with 8 other trucks when you park at a gate in the morning, then by all means go ahead.

But if you want my opinion. Not that many deer.

Nice way to go  :tup: I live in the mason unit and hunt deer just around my house we usually do good, and I see you did too. It was a great day to be out hunting with the heavy rain we had.  :hunter:

The firearm restriction area isnt very big just a sliver of the unit, but I hunt muzzie in 633 so the restriction doesn't affect me for the late season. Very cool getting your first Wa deer with the 357.

I've killed a lot of deer out of the Mason unit... It's loaded with deer... Every year there's more and more traffic in a bunch of places there didn't use to be... For late season this year I'll be in the Skok...

Got tired of the road hunters in Mason and found a nice locked gate and put leather to dirt. Toward midday found a nice doe and followed her, when the buck finally made his appearance, it was brush pickers that came roaring around a road I couldn't see on the opposite side of the clearcut that blew me chance for me.....It's a good area, but tough to get away from everyone. I prefer solitude.
Ethics is doing the right thing even when you know no one is looking.
