there was a high buck area somewhere around Tonga Ridge that was in the high hunt in the mid-late 70's.  This was not in a wilderness area (then).

Tonga Mountain is a border of the Wilderness, and became a Wilderness in 1976

That is now and it was a hunting area prior to that.

I wasnít doubting that

High Hunt in a picture. Pretty much sums it up.

Going to be a Zoo in the LG and Boulder cr area this year. Was in there hiking this weekend lots of people around.

Yep. It's the same thing every year, regardless of whether or not people heed advice on how to select places to go.

Probably only so many search and rescue crews available.

Anyone know much about the buckhorn wilderness on the Peninsula? Been doing some hiking in that area this summer and could be a cool place to hunt. Didnít want to step on any toes if guys are already hunting it. Relatively small wilderness with limited access.

I've seen that question asked quite a bit before on here. General consensus is "No deer in the buckhorn"

You can decide for yourself what that means  :chuckle:

I thought that was the general consensus on high buck altogether?  :chuckle:

Recently it seems people have been spreading misinformation by fabricating success stories in the mountains, totally unfair to all the new hunters who are now thinking its a good idea to go up there, those poor little guys  :bash:

Wasnít looking for conformation that deer are present, thatís the easy part. Part I am
Concerned about is how many guys might be hunting it.

Being so close to a few towns with a lot of generational knowledge passed down, there are a number of guys that just show up on opening morning and know exactly where to be.  A couple of those guys have all the long range set ups.  Some of the areas are only a few miles so you won't see camps, they just hike up the trail early in the dark.  Some of them have been hiking the area all summer and move into different areas and are successful that way too.  Probably be at least one group aways in with a couple horses.  I'd say you have to either beat them into those areas or have an area that's just not known to traditionally hold 3 pt + bucks.  I think a good number of the bucks are in the higher elevation valleys inside of the park and don't really come out into the buckhorn until mid/late October.

Nothing new under the sun.  Fires are creating log jams the last few years.  It's ok.  If you took all the people who have ever high hunted and put the number of hunts they did on a chart, the most common number would be 1. Smoke filled, dude filled seasons should spike that number. Considering the rate at which tag sales decrease in WA every year, folks should be able to find a quiet place to hunt in the coming years.
