204 East Okanogan tag question
« on: September 27, 2021, 11:35:26 AM »
Ok, I want to start this off with. I got a doe tag for the 204, and the intent was to hunt with my buddy. But plans changed and life has gotten in the way for him. So this season I am solo. Being a new hunter that hasnít gotten a deer yet, and doesnít know the 204. Combined with the fires, should I just refund my tag? Or would it still be worth going out there without being able to scout? Since the fires were going for so long?

Do not refund. Lots of area. You will be fine. Hunt it and enjoy. Good chance to double up and whack a buck at the same time/trip

Awesome, thanks! Doubling up solo would be awesome until reality set in I have to haul them both out solo lol.

Bring a rubber tired cart of some kind.  Lots of logging roads in 204.  Wheel them out whole.  Bring onx on your phone and pack out is no problem.

Am i missing something?
Unless he drew a "second deer" permit and bought a second tag for the permit, he only has one tag and can only kill one deer????

Absolutely go! There was TONS of info given to you and your buddy for this hunt. Take that info and head on over. The weather is generally pretty good, there are LOTS of does in the unit and it really is your best opportunity to fill your first deer tag. There is lots of NF that did not burn and it certainly holds does.

ALSO DOUBLE CHECK YOUR TAG BEFORE TRYING TO DOUBLE UP  :tup:

I'm thinking this is a general season youth permit and not a second deer tag. Spend all the time out there you can, be sure of the unit boundaries and have a bunch of fun harvesting your first deer.

Yep! Sorry I got sick with a cold. Just getting back to the boards. No one can go with me, so I am debating getting my points back. Or I just go and try my best, I am worried I will fail to fill the tag and have waisted it. But only one way to find out.

Go hunt and be safe. Enjoy time afield. Hunting solo can be great as you hunt at your pace and how you want. You learn a lot. And it will be a memorable experience. No matter what it won't be a waste and would love to see you have a good chance at harvesting a deer. Deer or no deer would like to hear the stories. Good luck.

If you end up finding a partner to go that is great too and hopefully can teach you a bunch.
Live a lifetime of example and you see the whole picture. Hear spread gossip of the scenario doesn't make it true. Especially from the source it is coming from. Take a step back and see the big picture. It's obvious as to what is.

95% of the areas he was told to hunt in his prior thread are now closed through 2021.

Lots of area that is open to fill this tag, i could of filled it with out trying 3x times thus weekend. The fire burned to 200yds of my place  :twocents:

To hunt and butcher an animal is to recognize that meat is not some abstract form of protein that springs into existence tightly wrapped in cellophane and styrofoam.

I was worried about that, but unless I am wrong. All DNR land has opened as of the 16th of September. There is still a burn ban, but there is no blocked public access from what I can see.
