2021 modern slide ridge permit
« on: June 10, 2021, 08:35:40 PM »
Finally after 16 years drew a buck tag. Weird thing is it was my second choice.  Somewhat familiar with the area and what to expect but any intel would be much appreciated.

Lucky draw, that is a good tag to get.  Congrats!!!  Some really big deer have been killed on that tag.

Thanks. I see unit borders the lake. Is it worthwhile to hunt from a boat?

In my opinion no, I wouldnít even consider it.  Way better access via the road system.

Chains chains chains. Those roads can get sketchy with just rain. add some snow and ice woooo buddy chains for all 4 is the best advice i can give
Remember that buck is climbing that Mt. every day!

great draw. that unit i would have to rank in my top five for being able to get a once in a lifetime buck. if the weather turns and the deer hit rut you better give your buddy the ammo and you carry the gun. be ready to pass on some nice bucks. i would stick to the roads rather than try boating. first is this lake is unforgiving. your unit boarders the straights as we call it. its the part of the lake that can be dead calm one min and 6ft white caps the next. second is unless your a mountain goat its all straight up and i mean straight up. you better plan on some scouting trips too. the unit has two ways on getting into it. shady pass rd from the entiat side and 25 mile creek from the other. shady pass is at 6600 to 6700 ft so November will be interesting to see if you can make it. that area is a big migration route and is a staging area for when the snows get deep. the deer will hang in the upper basins and eventually migrate down into the lower entait valley or along the south shore of the lake. during modern season a lot of pressure is on the Chesapeake saddle , junior point, and big hill. this hunt will all depend on rut and weather. the worse the weather and the rut going on and it will be absolutely nuts. good luck and keep us up to date.

Thank you for the intel. Will definitely have chains for all 4. Can you ride side by sides up on forest service roads? Any pics of deer from previous permit holders?

I love that area, you will have a good hunt. Some of the biggest bucks I've ever laid eyes on have been in that neck of the woods.
