    Hunter Fryingpan Wilderness

    Thinking about putting in for an early rifle buck tag for this unit. Anyone hunted it during the early seasons? Wondering about buck numbers and size of bucks. I can handle the rough terrain. Just thinking about trying for a different hunt this year. Thanks in advance!

    Me too. And there are only 20 tags...

    I've never hunted there before, but it is about the only high country mule deer tag you can draw w/o pts.

    Maybe I can dissuade you guys by mentioning that the success rate for that hunt code has averaged 11% over the last five years.

    That's about average success here in Washington on those type of hunts.

    My unit has a 50% success rate, and it only takes 1 point to draw. No points if you're lucky.

    Sorry, that tag is impossible to get. I was talking about 2nd rifle season.

    I've hunted 47 and 471 HCB several times. Lots of deer and lots of hikers!

    Thanks! I'm glad to hear there are deer up there. I was pretty sure there would be a ton of hikers. That is right about the time the aspen start to turn, and everybody heads up to independence pass. And, even though there are only 20 tags, they are for the same time as the muzzleloader season, so I'm sure there will be hunters too. Maybe if I hike back far enough...

    Still trying to decide between unit 47 high country bucks and unit 45 for both deer and elk in the muzzleloader season. Either way is going to be ton of fun!
