Busiest training schedule since the Korean war. Access into the good areas will be an issue this fall. Good luck.

Hereís what I know about hunting on the Yakima Training Center:

-   The training center is vast and covers approximately 500 square miles.
-   The training center is broken up into 16 ďtraining areasĒ and also some additional areas. A few of the areas such as the Central Impact Area are never open to the public.
-   The 16 training areas may or may not be open for recreational use at any one time. The list of open areas changes daily and is usually available around 17:00 the day before.
-   Access to and egress from the training center is via one entry point off exit 26 from I-82 near Selah. Access is available from 2 hours before sunrise until two hours after sunset.
-   At check-in visitors may select up to three training they wish to visit. These may be changed with a phone call while on the training center.
-   All visitors must have a recreation pass. The pass is $25 and is valid from April 1 through March 31 of the following year. To obtain a pass the visitor must read a manual of training center regulations.
-   All visitors must show personal identification. At times a passport or enhanced driverís license have been required and will ultimately be so. The implementation date has been extended a few times but it would be wise to check and confirm what the current requirement is.
-   The driver must provide current vehicle registration and proof of insurance.
-   Hunters must display a valid hunting license, tags and permits, and anything else required for the specific hunting intended.
-   All firearms brought on the training center must be registered with the Training Center Police.
-   Firearms must be cased while in a vehicle.
-   You are on your own for vehicle issues. Bring good tires and at least one spare. If your vehicle breaks down it is your responsibility to have it towed.
-   Summer weather is hot and dry, and a few fires usually occur every summer.
-   Winter can bring enough snow that some areas become impassible.
-   As for elk, they can be anywhere on the training center but tend to congregate in certain areas depending on the time of year. My experience has been that I see them on average every three to five visits.

Happy hunting.

The few times Iíve hunted in for upland birds the roads are brutal on tires, canít stress the good tires enough plus spares. :twocents:

Not 100% but last year they said pass was going up to $40 not sure if they did or not.  Tires, tires, and then 2 more tires then 4 new ones after the hunt , master hunters start August 1st as stated they have there favorite spots but with the pressure out there  nothing surprises me on where you find them  good luck will be fun also make sure to pay attention to speed limit signs seems pretty but they have multiple speed changes in a few areas and they patrol them quite well

I hunted out there for 10 days straight one year and never had an issue with any tires.  The roads didnít seem all that bad to me.

Good luck on the hunt

I find the tire report different from each person!

One year that place ate a set of my tires up. The next time it was no different than any other gravel road.

I've spent quite literally hundreds of days out there and I've never had so much as a low tire. I always run a quality 10 ply though  :dunno:

Wow.

I've probably been out there 7 days.......   2 flats.

Load Range D truck tires.

It might depend on which little road you frequent, because I found my way up one that shredded my tires.

Only hunted it one year. While most roads didn't seem especially bad, I remember one road there- it lead up and over a very windy pass- that was absolutely horrible. Sharp rocks sticking out at all kinds of crazy angles. Didn't blow out a tire, but I sure thought I would. Took it very easy.
