2023 Special draw

The time has come for another year of Washington hunting. How does everyone feel about things this year?
We have had a very wet and snow filled winter that could be helping our herds and deer populations, Predators will always be a problem until WDFW implements predator control based on populations.

Not holding my breath on any draws, WA or out of state.

You can have my points too.  I'll check to see if there is a youth tag that works with our schedule for my son, but that's all for our family.

Honestly, I'll probably think twice about waterfowl, might not buy anything hunting at all.

They wonít do you any good!  Maybe increase your odds to .00001% instead of .000001%.

Not only has the quality of this states hunting has went into the toilet 🚽 but the quotas have been reduced so low that it just isnít worth it any more. Take your money and buy different state raffle tickets and you probably have better odds of getting a tag!!

Had a great quality elk hunt last year which at my age, will most likely be my lastÖ.
I have drawn 2 quality tags in 27 years, but they werenít the hardest to draw, and I had a blast on both hunts.

I have always considered drawing a premium tag a huge bonus, and never went into serious depression not drawing, except maybe for sheep  :yike:

My joy in hunting is spending time in the woods with my close friends.  Any animal is harvested is a bonus :tup:
