Hi Leeray. Contact Kellen manke in the sumner office and discuss with him about manke property. Nice guy and knowledgeable. He will answer any questions you have.

I assume if you bait anywhere on the west side.....you will have to be selective with what you use.   Cob (sweet or dry), deer chow, other grains, etc. will likely bring more bear than deer.  A food plot would likely be the best to keep bears away. 

As for purchasing property, If it is close to home and you will use it......it is never a bad investment.  A lot of guys on here, including myself, recommend land further east than most are willing to drive.  If it is local / close, you are far more likely to use it.  If there are deer 10 miles away.....there are deer on or around that property.  Make it a project and go for it.  If it doesn't pan out, sell it 5-10 years from now and make money.   :tup: :tup: :tup:

A lot can change in 10 miles

I also live in Kitsap and have hunted several years close nowhere you're talking about. If you're buying it strictly for the hunting, I'd not recommend it. The hunting on this peninsula has declined a lot in the last 10 years. The woods here are pressured with tons of people year round, much like what's helps wreck the hunting in the Okanogan. Rayonier is buying Pope- it's in the Seattle Times- so you'll have to pay to access that land. I've never been able to find any contact info for Manke Timber, so I've never been able to ask about access to their land for hunting.

House & apartment building is going crazy over here, and it's spreading down to where you're talking about. If you're not looking strictly for the hunting and hang onto it for 5-8 years, maybe less, you can probably make some good money.

 :yeah:

If you are buying just for the Hunting, No, I would not.

If you want an area to live in with lots of local lakes to fish, also within close distance to the Canal for salt water fishing, crabbing, etc..., with a slight chance of hunting Blacktail close, but a great chance of hunting Blacktail with a 30-40 minute drive, and the best part, away from the East side crazy, then yes I would buy it!

I have Family that live near there, and a cabin on Hood Canal.
The quality of life is so much better there than on the East side, providing you do not have to commute for work.

The American Soldier and Jesus Christ. One died for your freedom, the other for your soul.

I've been in and out of Kitsap for over 40 year's. That area will never get developed. Closes town is belfair, I mean who wants to purposely go to belfair. It's a good area to get away from it all, but it's by no means an investment opportunity.  Case in point I'm halfway between that area and Silverdale, so 15 minutes from a decent town, 25 minutes to a ferry boat, my land value has gone up about 30% in 17 years...so not a huge increase. Land values out in dewatto have been steady for the last few years. Just to long of a drive for people.

Plenty of brush pickin , trash dumping, dirt bikes  and beer drinking
Deer hunting not so much
Plenty of guys during modern
Seldom see any success though
Sketchy folks abound
Good luck
Keep the wind in your hair, and the sun at your back.


A gun is a tool, Marion, no better or no worse than any other tool, an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that.



"Mighty hunter, yes?
Fine figure of a man, yes?
That is all you need to know."
