51 year old newbie
« on: May 09, 2018, 02:26:01 PM »
ok, went deer hunting last year for the first time and got hooked.  Just received a call yesterday from the WDFW and was told i was chosen for the deer incentive program for turning in my hunting report before 1/10.  Now reading through, i see if i hunt during a bow or muzzle loader season, that is what i need to use...i just own a modern rifle.  If you were me, how would you go about using this permit?  I live in Moses Lake, Wa. thanks for any input...very excited about the opportunity.  it was covered in a thread last year about going in december...just not sure.

Might be a good excuse to buy a muzzleloader.  Probably just skip achery.

Congrats on the permit. :brew:
May I always be the kind of person my dog thinks I am.

I would just hunt with a rifle outside of any general seasons. With that tag, why compete with other hunters?

You're in Moses Lake? How about hunting GMU 290 from October 29 to November 9. You would have it to yourself except for the duck hunters. Even when the late permit season starts on November 10 there are only 5 permits so still not much competition. That permit ends on the 18th so you could have it to yourself again from the 19th to the 23rd. (Archery permit starts the 24th.)

Or you're not far from Entiat. There are only 18 permits for that unit November 1-20. You could hunt it then, or beginning December 1 after the archery season is over.
