It should be a good hunt.

You got good advice.

Gongrats to your friend on the draw.     :tup:

Thank you! I am stoked I didn’t expect to draw anything for a long time.

The beauty and the curse of this state. Could draw with one point or go to the grave with 30. Good luck

Good luck on your hunt it should be fun. At this point with Washington's draw system it doesn't matter how many pts you have if it's your time to draw it's your time. I know someone who has drawn back to back quality buck tags so you never know what you will draw.

That’s really interesting I guess random is random.

Thanks for the positive responses and The PM helpers too.
As I stated earlier We will definitely keep the updates coming, as We scout, hunt and hopefully find success.
I know it's only a doe tag but the first Deer is always memorable and special.

I have drawn this tag twice (have not put in for it in 7 or 8 years) my son drew it twice as  a youth and daughter drew it once also. Public ground is plentiful and it holds plenty of deer. You are in for a great hunt that should result in meat! It is a hunt and there are always variables. We have property in 204 and one year my son drew the second rifle tag (sept 8 to Oct 9) and youth whitetail doe (regular season) and we gave it heck! We had cougars in the area that year, we drove over there every weekend in Sept and Oct and he shot a doe the very last weekend (only doe we saw long enough for him to get on). I tease him still that 90 pound doe cost me $10 a pound!!! But so worth it! Congrats on the draw and have a  hunt  :IBCOOL:

I feel that all too well lol, this being my 5th year of hunting. I finally got Turkey, my wife gave me hell and goes “those are the most expensive damn turkeys we have ever bought”. But I would do it all over again, that feeling when I didn’t want to get up that last day to hunt. And then I doubled up, made everything worth it. Hoping this is my year to finally get a deer. And in case we see a cougar or a bear I have my tags for those too :). I look forward to being able to share my knowledge and failures with my son one day. He’s only 7 but keeps begging me to go hunting, but he’s just a wee bit too loud lol.

NOBODY hunts for the $$ savings!! Lol!
Yes, get your boy out there as soon as you think you have the patients to deal with HIM! As soon as you take a kid it is all about them, try to remember that and you will both be happier. My son took hunters ed at 7 and we started him on youth permits. He had three tags before he filled one but he set the dynamics for the hunts. He had opportunities but I always told both kids to never rush the shot, if it was the right shot the trigger would just go off. It was tough the first two deer that he saw but could not get set up on but he understood. That first deer each of the kids got will always be way more important to me than any of mine. I only carry a gun now because you never know when you're going to have a shot. Otherwise the kids can take all the deer as far as I am concerned. Just pay attention to your son and when you think he is ready start the process! It is AWESOME!

If you get the OnX app check out Walker Creek just east of Bonaparte or Spur Mt Rd by lost Lake. these are all National Forest Land.

Thank you… we are getting close to our first scouting trip/ bear hunt.
My hunting partner and I plan on spending the first weekend in august getting a look at the land while keeping an eye out for the potential bear 🤞🏻
We will add this to our location list
