Sounds like fun! I think I'm going to modern firearm blacktails and elk on the west side and whitetail on the east. I'm still working on the areas and should have more time to look around in a couple weeks.

If you plan on hunting the Whitetail in the extreme northeast or the units north of Lake Roosevelt. Do some prehunting research. A great majority of the land is private. You will need to get permission in writing from the property owner.

There is plenty of public Whitetail hunting land up past the Kettle Falls area in the Colville National Forest.

Last year, we saw one of the biggest black bear I ever seen, up in that area.
He ran into about 2 acres of thick brush. The only way we could find to go in after him was on hands and knees. The decision was to try another time.
Didn't see as many deer as we thought we would.
There were turkey in the barn eating the grain.
I know several people that have property up through there and the hunters are using there property as access, with no consideration. Posted or not, with no regard. A couple three years ago someone shot a beef cow and left it to rot. If that don't piss a guy off. I don't know what would.

That's atrocious! :x Private land and owners must be respected. These things don't help hunting on private land for anyone.
