I found this site when searching for elk/deer hunting in Washington. I mostly cruise Alaska chat rooms (Alaska Outdoors Directory and Pristine Ventures) and 24 Hour Campfire.
I'd like to come down there and hunt sometime. My first fly-out hunt (in Alaska) is being planned for '09 so I realistically won't be down that way until 2010, unless there is the chance of hunting big game over Christmas break as I am a teacher.
I like to big game hunt (moose is my "speciality") and I have only recently taken up black bear and sheep unsuccessfully. I like to read a lot so any suggestions to read up about hunting WA would be appreciated. I do a lot of family camping w/ the wife & kids in the summer and am getting into small game as my stepson has finally taken an interest at age 15!
My father lives in Bremerton and my cousin is across the Cascades outside of Spokane, so that is part of my motivation for choosing WA for elk/deer.
