District 1
Looks like huckleberry is still king,only GMU still holding decent harvest numbers.
All the other GMU in district 1 seem low to me.
Or huckleberry being so high just puts it to shame.
Talking deer general season.

As for permits,I don't really need to look at harvest reports.
If drawn I plan on hunting it,not selected is so high probability.
No need to look at harvest rate.

Based on the 13 reports they received back, there were 11 hunters and 11 animals killed. So 100% of the reported hunters filled their tag.

I am not always convinced that the harvest statistics are 100% spot on.  I know, for fact, that one of the elk categories had at least twice the number of harvest than is being reported.   Perhaps we should take the harvest statistics as "ball park"? ha ha

I don't know why people get so hung up on these reports. They are based on the honor system and self-reporting, of course they're not 100% dead-nuts accurate. They are a best-guess estimate taking those who do report and extrapolating that across the total number of tag holders. An indicator of trends, that's it.

You are 100% correct.  But, the only caveat is that for OIL and for low permit number draws, it really helps me decide which hunts to put in for as I usually review the prior 5 years of harvest statistics to see if harvest trends warrant me throwing my points at.  I have stopped putting in for a couple of areas because the reported harvest numbers have dropped significantly or harvest went to 0.  There is also the component of hunter days which gives me a great idea of what effort it might take me to harvest.  Most of the OIL and quality hunts we are all flying blind into them and always start my research with the harvest info.  It is self reported/honor system and seriously appreciate those who report especially in the quality and OIL categories.

These stats may be close BUT, there are a lot of hunters that bite the $10 and do not report.



Curious. How do you know this?

There's an option on the reports that say "did not hunt" so the report has been returned but you're not going to be factored into the harvest success if you didn't try.

Was just looking at quality deer permits for NE WASHINGTON.
Doesn't look like very many get filled.
Only 2 harvest for the whole district.
A lot of didn't even get hunted.
Figured I'd look.
