Hi all, this is my first post on this site, and I appreciate you taking the time to help out a neophyte.
I've hunted deer (blacktails) in Washington for the past several years with no success. Primarily, my hunting has been in Region 5, southwest Washington, generally in either the Toutle, Siouxion, and Battle Ground units. I am determined to hunt seriously this year, and hopefully end my losing streak. I'm willing to hunt pretty much anywhere in the state, but would prefer to do so within a hundred miles of my home in Vancouver. My rifle battery includes a 30/30, 30-06, and also a Remington 870 12 gauge. I consider myself proficient with all these guns, and I'd be comfortable shooting out to 300 yards with the '06.
Considering my equipment, and the fact that I can only hunt on weekends, where/how should I be hunting. Frankly, I could care less about shooting a buck or a doe. I know this is a wide open question, but I appreciate any help you can give me.
