R u talking about tibbits?
Game dept screwed Swakane up when they opened it up for Does a few years ago. Its been on a slow decline for Mature bucks for years and now more hunters every year

They closed it for shooting does a few years ago.

I know.

I had a spot I only saw one guy there in 6 years. Usually see 10 to 20 bucks a day there. The year they opened up for Does I saw 2 guys there. The next year Does went to permit. All the guys hunting Does the year before were back hunting bucks and I saw 6 guys in that spot. Its never been the same.

It kind of reminds me back in the 80's when they gave out hundreds of Doe tags in Blewett, for multiple years in a row. It has never recovered from that. Killed most of all the local Derer. Our Game Dept manages people not animals

Buy I digress because we all know that :bash:
