said it before and i'll say it again...buying those weyco permits area waste of time and money

Based on what first hand experience and where?

I've had a Vail permit very year and it's the best hunting related investment I make every year. The only time I don't get an animal is when I choose to pass on them. That includes bear, deer and elk with an opportunity on a cougar at least once every year. I see more hunters when I'm out in the NF hunting than I do in Vail, and often times I'll go a day or two during deer season without seeing anyone out in Vail (other than driving down the main line). As far as rampant poaching, I see exponentially more evidence of poaching in the state and national forests.

I've never been up to the North Cascades area but based on what I've seen in Vail, Pe Ell South and Aberdeen I would get a permit and try it for a year to see how it works out.

Thanks for all of the replies, great information. I'm looking at timber lands because I'm still exploring all of my options. Being new to Washington and looking at the entire state, trying to narrow down the areas that I would like to concentrate my time in. I do like the fact that in Weyehaeuser you can hike and camp besides hunting. I plan to scout more public lands over the summer for good hunting habitat. I definitely prefer to hunt back country, which Wyehaeuser does allow (Campbell Global does not allow over night camping). Again, thanks for all of the great info,  Dave
It's only trouble if you get caught. Otherwise it is an adventure.

I probably should have mentioned that on average it took less time to connect with the bulls on the private land than it did on the state land.

I have bought a weyco drive in permit in western Oregon for the last 3 years, and have harvested 3 bulls, there also has been no shortage of elk to hunt on a daily basis. The flip side to that is that for the 3 years prior to that i had no permit, and killed three bulls as well on state land. I believe that the permit can make a difference in the hands of the right person. It was easier to kill the 3 permit bulls than it was to kill the 3 state land bulls.

Sounds like you need to adopt me and help me find some elk!  Nice work on connecting with the bulls.

I have 3 already tagging along, it's kinda crowded as it is.

So I learned alot from this thread. I have not gotten to explore much of the area. I have looked into some of these permits. It is not to bad a price to pay to hunt. I am from the midwest though and there it has become a pay to hunt situation.

Good luck, however you decide.  Hope to see a success photo sometime next fall.
