    There has been for sure. Like Ridgerunner says though, pretty unusual.

    I agree that Washington has great potential but WDFW fails to manage wildlife and instead creates opportunity for the public.
    Something has to change, Big Game should be put first instead of hunters requests: with hunter numbers increasing, road densities, types/ and lengths of hunting seasons, technological advancements in hunting equipment, predator numbers, wdfw budget shortfalls, age of animals doing the breeding effecting herd dynamics, (younger animals breeding creates late calfs or fawns), habitat loss, hoof rot or other diseases, lack of education in our younger generation, it would be truly a wonder if our younger generation ever harvested a mature Buck or Bull in General Season or even a controlled hunt if they were lucky enough to get drawn.

    I know the moose are FULL of parasites. I quit hunting WA 20 years ago. Way to much effort for minimal returns.

    Hey guys, thanks for the info. I realize WA is not a heavy hitter in the grand scheme of things, however, there are several good options as you all mentioned OIL tags, and decent Whitetail. We are shaping this MRS section with care, and hopefully with your continued help! This year's MRS will be short and hit the highlights and over the next few years we can dig in we can potentially expose a few more pros and help educate people about the cons. Thanks again for all of your helpful info. Let me know what you think of the right up, it will be in next months issue! (April/May) EHJ.

    Sincerely

    Jordan Breshears

    I can't wait to see it. I think it could be interesting. Did you do your write up for the MRS just by going off of your own experience with hunting WA. If not how did you go about writing it?

    Beats California! We hunted there one year in the Mendocino unit and all we saw were guys roaring around on their ATV's , all camoed up, hoping to see a deer. We're trad guys, and were on foot. No deer at all opening weekend. I moved to WA, and there are animals here, you just need to avoid the KOA-type deer camp areas. This usually means a 10-12 mile hike into the high country.

    I've been perusing the WA MRS lately and well done Eastmans! Good to know all the stats even if it's not a known "trophy" destination.
