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:
When it comes to scent, there are basically two types; those that attract and those that mask. I've tried both on many occasions. There are lots and lots of "doe in heat" scents, designed to attract a big buck into range. I've also used a "cow in heat" scent while elk hunting.
Another scent would almost be better named as a "coverup smell". The main goal is to cover up human odor or mask it. Though I don't believe you can ever totally eliminate all human...
