Deep Creek Rayonier permit
« on: May 14, 2021, 06:55:16 PM »
This is my first post longtime lurker.

I lost my longtime deer hunting area. I did a bit of hunting around the wynoochee/satsop area last year but seems to be hard to get a drive in permit in that area.

Anyways my dad is turning 70 this year and heís had a hobble since last season and not able to walk that far. So Iím interested in the Rayonier permit as a possible limited access area but I donít know much about it. I have camped in that area but Iíve never been on the ground myself.

Iíve shot plenty of nice blacktails over the years so not looking for any trophies just decent access with a vehicle that isnít overrun with people.

Is the portion of 112 to the entrance open now?  Or open by deer season?  They had a few slides and the road was closed.  I heard WSDOT was supposed to start rebuilding, but who knows how long it would take.

Are you mainly looking for BT areas for your (somewhat feeble) father, or for yourself?  Can your father shoot anything other than a rifle?

If he has a bit of a handicap, and you are only looking for BT, you might think about the islands.  Find some land owners on Hartstene, etc.  It will take a bit of work on your part, of course.

In my experience land owners are more amenable to the story of the old man who can't get around easily.  They won't have much sympathy for you of course.

Another thing to consider is this: Most of the hunt able former Pope land in JeffCo and Kitsap was sold to Rayonier last year.  Those lands will have limited (and spendy??) access tags, going on sale in late June.  Those properties used to have unlimited hunters, but that will change this year.

Buy an access permit this year with your father.  Much closer to Belfair than Deep Creek.

I don't see this area listed specifically on the Rayonier site.  Is this land accessible with one of the "General" permits?

I saw it on the map for the western wa generals (single and family).

Thanks.  After I dug a little deeper I kind of figured that out. Never applied for any of these permits so I was a little confused at first glance.
