Alta Late muzzleloader
« on: November 23, 2020, 07:08:50 PM »
My son and I have the late tag this year, wondering if anyone can give me an update on the snow? how deep and how the roads are in the unit. Thanks for your time.

You could get into 12-18 inches of snow from 2000' & up in shades areas. South & west slopes may be less.  More snow upper Methow & less on south end of unit such as Antoine Creek wich once you get past the private the snow gets deep before intersections to Goat Mtn.

How many points did it take you to draw the tag.  Took me 9.

Thank you for the information it really helped with our prep to know what to bring. The snow is making it difficult to get anywhere.

I was up in Black Canyon this afternoon.  Heavy compact snow.  Got very stuck.  I did see 6 small bucks on a another piece of property in the morning.  So much snow there is no sneaking around!  Not sure what Iím going to do, as I canít get into any back areas.  Might just drop a small one and go duck hunting.

I wouldnít do that. You can duck hunt anytime but you wonít have this tag again anytime soon...

People get offended at nothing at all. So, speak your mind and be unapologetic.

Well said  :yeah: it's his tag not yours lol. If he wants to use it on a smaller bucks and meat for the freezer there's no issue with that. Just my  :twocents:
