Bow Hunting in Washington

I recently just moved to Washington state. I am an avid Bow Hunter from West Virginia. I'm going to be in Washington state for at least two years while finishing my enlistment in the Navy. Can someone help me with information on places to hunt around Snohomish County? And what the deer population is like in this and surrounding areas?

What made you pick Snohomish county?? Is it a time availability thing?

I'm stationed At Everett Naval Base... Snohomish county is my pick because I don't know anything else. Is that bad? Can anyone help?

Go east young man

Decent resources:

And, of course:

Deer population is high everywhere, but less crowded if you go over the mountains.

Welcome to BGH.

The northwest thread is getting more and more active every day. Looking forward to your contributions.
I have the impression that you may be a bow hunter as well as rifle.

I am still a hotheaded young man, so have not developed the patience for bow hunting yet. ;-)

Relatives are into it though.

Yes I rifle hunt as well, but after starting bow hunting about 9 years ago I prefer it to rifle.......I'm looking for a hunting partner
