just a formality for me anymore great if I draw, but I sure dont rely on WA draw for anything great.
  :yeah: but with that said, I've never been on a bad permit hunt.  You draw a tag, you are gonna have a good hunt.

As long as you put in serious effort.

I've seen a lot of complaints about crappy permit hunts.  The few I have been on have been amazing though.
yes I was gonna say that but some people get very offended when their effort is brought into question.  I've had permits the same year as others on here and we've had vastly different experiences :chuckle:



Please dont forget.....others may not be able to hike in miles or do steep and deep. Hunting the best they can, I applaud them no matter what their skill level/physical abilities are.  :twocents:
correct.  That's why I did not initially mention it.  Everyone has a different level of "hard".  With that said, a lot of people are just lazy too :chuckle:

Just curious Karl; was he a fairly "new" hunter in the WDFW system?  Meaning that his Wild ID# is "newer" than ours?
Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes.  That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

nope he's been hunting Washington for 40 years but recently decided to dip into the oils.  I'll have to ask him again on his points.  I'm second guessing myself now and thinking it was 6.  Regardless it wasn't very many

I used to get really excited but started hunting out of state 4 years ago and have in a short time already killed a bigger buck and bigger bull than I killed on the quality tags I drew in Washington in 2008. I feel the otc tags of other states are just as good as the best quality tags our state has to offer. Hard to get excited these days but I do have a lot of points for this state.

Getting down to the last week... anyone feeling any different about their feelings earlier in the process?  I gave in and applied for quality elk and the oil tags but gave up on the rest.

I'm always excited about the draw and this year is no different. I'm only in for six myself, but my daughter is in for 11. I'm really expecting her to draw a youth doe permit, since she'll have two points and odds are 1 in 3. None of the others are easy draws so I have no expectation for anything but the one doe permit. But I'd say we have a fair chance of drawing at least one other hunt out of the 16 applications.

Last year I expected she'd draw the youth deer permit, and she didn't, but instead got a youth cow elk permit. I'd be fine with that again this year. But even if we have zero luck in the draw, we've got a cabin reserved in eastern Washington for the first five nights of the modern firearm mule deer season. So I'm excited about this year's hunting season, no matter if we draw special permits or not.

Not excited at all.  Just excited to see if we get the new bear regs.
