Drew watershed with 17 points.  I have an eastern WA muzzle loader tag.  Sounds like this one may hurt an old guy.  Any advice?

Well, if you can get a hold of horses you will be much better off.  It is steep and deep, without stock, you will be doing a lot of walking.  If you come up from the bottom you'll be crossing a creek several times before it opens up a bit.  If you come in from the top you'll be hunting down, and I think there is a place to camp towards the middle?  I'd come in from the bottom if I had horses, top if not.  But it will prob be the steepest country you've ever seen, some potential for a great bull, it's just a tough azz hunt.

you may want to go down there and look at it, you may turn your tag in.  Especially a muzzy

Is there a way to see what number you were in the drawing? Never heard of it before but since you can return tags now that would be kind of cool to know.

I drew Archery Quality Colockum. Looks like I need to start scouting. I wasn't expecting to draw.

Nice tag!  I drew the Colockum Quality Rifle (late).  So I will be about 6 weeks behind you!  Tie one up to a tree for me...

So how does turning your tag in work?  Do you keep your points or are they gone?  All I hear about this hunt is how tough it is, and being further handicapped by a muzzleloader?  This might be the right option for me.

You will get your points back if you decide to mail back in your permit.  But it’s worth a look at, you may try it from the top? But yeah, even tougher w a Muzzy.

I'm headed back to Tucannon for another round of archery elk.  :IBCOOL: :IBCOOL:

My brother and I both killed really nice bulls in there in 2015. I can't wait to be back in there chasing bulls!!!

I will try to tie one to a tree for you but six weeks is a long time and a muzzy hunter might find him. You might hav to drop some feed every once in a while too.  :chuckle:

Pretty sure you can't camp in the watershed.  In and out each day.
