Mt. View Unit
« on: May 28, 2018, 02:43:59 PM »
Hoping to draw East Wenaha for quality archery, but applied for Mt. View as my second choice for the first time.  I'm familiar with the Blues and its steep, rugged country. I've driven the perimeter roads, but have not hiked the unit.  I've read every Mt. View post on the forum that I could find through a search.  I've pm'd over a dozen guys who have posted about their experience in the unit.  Thanks Bullblaster, heronblu, and Elkburger for your responses: Incredibly helpful and encouraging. Good to know that members are willing to share so much.

I'm intending to spend time in the unit over the next few months--more if I get drawn.  I'm interested in the USFS steep ground in the NW part of the unit, but will consider hunting the other open areas of the unit.

If you have anything to share from your experience in the unit, I would appreciate your words.

Glad to share some pointers.  :tup: I’m far from an expert on the area but hope it helped. Hopefully you can pull a tag!

Hit me up when you are over there, I have hunted the West Wen, Dayton and Tucanon, but haven't scouted the mountain view unit.  All with a bow, I love chasing spikes and looking at the big bulls all while hoping one day to draw a tag down there.  I live in Seattle but my dad lives down there in Dayton and I visit him and go up in the mountains quite frequently so just let me when you are over there and we could meetup.

Congrats to you...can't wait to follow the hunt.  Dayton is my first pic for archery, 20 points and didn't draw.  You're gonna have a great hunt.

I didn't pay close enough attention to it being archery. We should still meet up being we're so close.
