Well I'm not much help on

Well I'm not much help on where to hunt in WA. But I can give you some pointers and point you in the right direction. I would start by going to the WA fish and wildlife dept website and see what kind of info you can find there. There are few members here from WA that could probably give you some general areas to check out. Do you have a bow already? Thats the biggest thing. You will need to practice shooting until its second nature. I would recommend finding an area you want to hunt and start scouting this spring. Get out there and look for animals and tracks, possible feeding areas and bedding areas, You need to find the deer/elk's travel routes. I would also visit the National forrest office and get yourself a map of the area you want to hunt and study it. Google earth is also a great tool. I'm sure one of our WA members will chime in and give you some more detail info on areas to start looking at. Good luck.

Welcome to the site, and more

Welcome to the site, and more importantly, welcome to the wonderful, addictive, frustrating, world of hunting :wink:  Add any adjective you want, and it probably fits hunting.

You have come to the right place for information.  Lots of knowledgeable people around here.  You seem to have taken teh first few steps to get you going.  Numbutz gave some good advice so I would start there.

Make sure to browse the forums on here.  Lots of information to be found.  Good luck!
