Looking for Chewelah contacts / E. Wash deer hunting

Howdy! I grew up in Spokane and always had great deer hunting around Chewelah. Unfortunately, I am now a fish out of water...my job has taken me to Seattle. Us Seattleites tend to be "persona non gratas" over in E wash anymore and it's hard to find a decent place to hunt. So I was wondering whether anyone on this board could throw my 13 yr old son and I a bone and help us get set up with a spot to hunt whitetails over near Chewelah. Beity Lake is where we've always hunted before.

We can hunt either black powder or modern, as we haven't specified our deer tags yet.

I own a driftboat, love to fish, and would be happy to trade a Steelhead trip or two down some of our west-side rivers over here in exchange for some good hunting access. We would also consider paying reasonable $$$ if the situation was right.

PS>>>We are not as "sleazy" as my handle here might imply. We are also not your usual "run of the mill left-wing liberal Seattle whackos".

Thanks for your time reading this post.

Thanks Rock, I glanced at it, will have to learn how to use that site.

BTW, we didn't draw cow tags for 342 Umtanum, so we'll probably bag hunting there and head up to the NE corner where it's "any bull" and "any whitetail" at the same time.

We love Clemans Mtn but finding a spike there is like a needle in a haystack.

Good luck to you this year.

I didn't do any good on 342 last year either . Wife and I were both in the hospital twice just before hunting season and I only went out a couple of days and they about did me in .
Walking a lot this year to get in shape , now if we can just stay away from the dang Doc's .
This year my youngest son wants to hunt modern . So after 25yrs I guess I'll try modern .
We don't hunt Clemens very much at all . Have other spots in 342 that are a lot better . We'll still have to get together and I'll show you some good spots . You would not beleive me if I told you . Have to see them.
P.S. Tell that young feller Hello for me .

Hey Moe,

You have caught my attention with this post on hunting around Chewelah. Theres tons of public,BLM, and as well as Bosie ground to hunt here in the NE corner. I myself just graduated from Jenkins High School here in Chewelah. Deer season is right around the corner and im not sure if you've made your decision yet but I can send you in the right direction. There's Calispel peak, The Huckleberry ridge, Dunn Mt, Iron Mt, Tower peak, Betts Meadows, Red Marble, Monumental mt, Mingo mt, and Stensgar Mt.....there is littleraly a list that goes on and on of prime white-tail habitat ....top off the peaks with a few extreamly small bands of mulies....I mean I can start on the Rose Hill Road off the top of the Springdale-Hunters hwy south of Chewelah and go for over 25 miles of windy mt roads and come out on Addy-Cedonia North of Chewelah..... I my self will be on Calispel peak chasin the elusive Stevens Co Mule Deer opening weekend. I have grown up here in Stevens Co hunting just about every game anamial imagine able....some successful some not so sucessful....I even had the privlage of going out in search of a Moose with a friend from Davenport, Wa. He connected on an impressive 52 1/2" bull. Any questions feel free to shoot when ever....

Ridge Runner, are you still out there? This poor guy from Seattle, afraid of the liberal Seattle label. I'm worse than he is, I currently live in northern Calif., and I can't imagine anyone helping me out. I hope you'll bear with me. I'm 63 years old and have hunted since I was 12. My grandson is going to college in Spokane, and he and I have bowhunted together since he was 12. I own 10 acres in Stevens county, in Deer Park, we plan to retire there. I have a brother in law that lives in Chewelah that is always telling me how many deer and elk are on his brothers place, yet all the hunting is for his friends and family. My neck is just as red as my brother in laws, he doesn't hunt, and I would love to find some hunting close to Deer Park. Nobody doesn't like my grandson, and I'm easy to please, the hunting here is all turning into hunt for pay, and I refuse to give in, as I am not a rich man.

I sure would appreciate it if we could contact you when we get up there for some hunting ideas.

Thanks,
Washington Bowhunter
