I'm sorry Groovy Mike, but I didn't see this until just now. We will be doing our hunting in unit #136, Harrington. I'm sure there are maps of the area that can be had. It's a pretty big area but we'll be concentrating around Crab Crick, as they call it in that part of the state. By the way, Crab Creek is the longest creek in the state.
We will see both whitetails and muleys, though I'm sure you'd rather take a big muley. Personally, I'd love to take a big whitetail. I have pictures of a buck my son-in-law took several years ago and I'm sure it's a crossbreed. Didn't anyone tell those two deer that they need to stay at home?

Thanks Arrow-flipper! There is no need to apologize at all.
Yep that helps me out a bunch. I was reading up on the hunting regulation rule book put out by the state of Washington that I had saved from my visit to your fine state in 2007 (yes I really am that much of a packrat – much to my dear wife’s chagrin) and as you well know there are varying rules and season dates depending on which hunting area you are in and I just couldn’t remember which one applied. I’ll request an updated rule book and read up on it to be sure that I am well acquainted with all the rules for the area that we will be in. Thanks for the information, and the invitation, and the guiding, and everything else! You be da man!
I would love to tag a second big muley, but I sure would not rule out a nice white tail. In fact, I'll be delighted with any legal deer at all - or even just a chance to hang out with you guys and look for them. :thumbsup1: :yes: :thumbsup1:
First of all, if you haven't gone winter backpacking, it needs to happen in the near future. It puts a very unique twist on the summer version of the activity. Yes, it's cold but it's nothing that being prepared can't remedy. Beyond it's therapeutic and recreational value, I think it is a very good tool for the big game hunter as well. I don't think that you can spend too much time getting to know the ins and outs of the area that you hunt. And there is no better way to gain experience in...
