I'll take one of those turkeys off your hands if you find them being a nuisance haha I all but gave up on turkey this year and was prepping a nice bowl of soup with it

As far as BT i took a decent size 3/4 back in 2020 and saw a real nice 4/4 back in 2019. i've hunted it a few times since and haven't really seen much to get me excited. This unit would really benefit from a spring bear hunt to protect a lot of those fawns and calfs dropping but we all know how that ended up for us a few years back

Thanks for the responses guys. The blacktails are showing up in my yard now along with turkeys. I gave a friend in the forest industry who told me about some nearby elk on public hunting land too. Thanks.

If we ever see a spring bear hunt again this would be a prime unit for it. Iím positive it has more bears than the previous spring units.

Completely agree, i was cruising a few old hunting spots in June of last year and glassed up 3 bears in the same unit! 2 boars fighting over a sow and one was size XL.

Not like it used to be but with mild winters there are a few great bucks out there. Besides the predators another major problem in West Klickitat and other places in the state is development of the winter range and itís only going to get worse.

That would be a nice spot to have some land.
