As stated in the deer draw thread I drew this tag. I stated I wasnít going to share where but after thinking about it I changed my mind. Itís not like itís a mule deer honey hole unit. I used 12 points to draw it.🤣

I live just south of the unit have hunted it mostly for bears. Saw a dandy three point in 1996 while bear hunting, and I could have killed it with a slingshot it was so rutted up.

Took my son up in it last year for modern. Saw some good sign in one spot  (amazingly enough as the wolves were in this area all summer killing deer, carcasses found).

Iím going to give it my best shot, this will be my last deer tag probably ever in this state unless the deer herds come back, at 56 YO I seriously doubt that will happen in my lifetime. And yes the blacktail numbers up here in the north sound are dismal at best.

Wish me luck.🤣

Wishing you the best of luck.  A nice big blacktail is one of the prettiest deer alive.  Hope to hear about your success later in the year!!
