We were in Okanagon County from friday afternoon till yesterday morning when we/I had to come back to work requirements.
At about 2 pm friday saw a legal shooter,if I had a muzzle loader tag.
Saw a bear opening morning.
In total saw more than 10 doe and 4 bucks.
1 buck was a spike with a small split/branch.
1 buck was a nice sized solid 2 point.
1 buck was the legal 3 point on the last day of muzzie Friday.
And the last was another legal 3 point that you will read about soon enough.
The last buck was with the spike and about 3 or 4 does.

Muzzy closed on Oct 6th  ;)
To hunt and butcher an animal is to recognize that meat is not some abstract form of protein that springs into existence tightly wrapped in cellophane and styrofoam.

renewed...just FYI, but the muzzy season closed on Oct. 6th...the Sunday before the rifle opener the following Sat. They changed it a few years ago, no more muzzy right up to modern. Just didn't want anyone to get into trouble...

Then that would explain the lack of concern he,the tree point ,had towards me and my partner on Friday before the opener.
Didn'e see a bear that day either. :'(

thanks for letting me know.

We spent a week up at our high camp near Twisp. Didn’t see a single deer until we came into town. Every camp on the road we base camp from had the same report... not looking good up there.

Super sad but not surprising.

Went up to the upper Entiat and hunted in the snow saturday and sunday morning.  Saw several (30 plus) deer with only one being a 3point.  Didn't present a shot as he was on a mission and couldnt get him to turn.  Saw a lion, missed the shot :bash: I didn't hear a lot of shooting and most of the guys were hunting low. I only saw 4 rigs up in the snow in the day and a half I was up there.

Got my first buck on Saturday, 4 point! A few other guys down the road had some luck too. Deer were streaming through the lowlands all morning, even saw some does sneaking through a hunting camp.

Hunted the timber in Chewuch and Alta off and on for 7 days. Saw north of 200 animals in the field way more than in the past two years prior. Saw even more in town. Did not see a legal buck in the woods but did see a few hanging in a couple camps, one was a very nice typical 4x4, also saw a few down low on private land. Shot a nice bear in 218 so I didn't go home empty handed. Found the most deer between 4,000 and 3,000 FT in elevation. Fresh snow in my higher elevation spots but zero sign with the exception of a very goofy looking spike horn.

Sounds like the doe kicked loose out of the mountains.   THat migration was something to behold in the past.

took sunday of the opener and went up as high as i felt safe to do. no deer not even any tracks. saw three hanging in camps. everyone we talked too said the same thing( seeing no deer or a few doe's). even below the snow we only saw two hanging and 14 doe's. we did finally see three bucks but all three were small 2 points. i will be surprised if the hunt results show more than 20 bucks taken in this unit. i do know there were alot of deer taken in another unit near by. just have to wait and see what the hunt results have to say. was a great year for me though. was able to put a lady from Alabama on her first deer ever. a really nice 2x3 , help another hunter take a wounded  3x3 that i had seen a couple of days earlier, and help a great friend get a nice 3x3 sat evening. my dad always said it not about the kill but about what you get out of the hunt. i made a great friend this week and great memories for those three. plus the bonus was i got to hunt with my wife, son and my daughter. couldn't ask for more.
