Whitetail Hunting Areas
Washington by Idaho and British Columbia. Bearpaw Outfitters
hunt over a million acres of public land and lease numerous
private ranches ranging from 200 to 2000 acres. There
are valleys, rolling hills, and high mountains with
evergreen forests, logging cuts, and farm fields. Bow season
runs Sept 1-29, muzzleloader Sept 30-Oct 8, rifle is Oct 14-27
and Nov 11-19.
& Trophy Potential
Some very large
bucks are taken every year but Washington
doesn't manage for trophy deer. It's recommended to take the first buck
seen to assure success but it's your choice on what bucks to
pass or shoot.
Some of the largest bucks are taken in the mountain areas.
Guided hunters usually average 40% to 60% shot opportunity.
Higher deer numbers but not usually the biggest bucks. Hunter numbers
are limited to maintain
90% to 100% shot
Whitetail Hunting Methods
Hike or glass mountain ridges and hillsides, game trails, logging cuts, bait sites, water holes, or
drive mountain logging roads. Hunters wanting to hike while
hunting should choose a mountain hunt.
Hunt in blinds or stands at food plots, bait
sites, alfalfa fields, orchards, game trails, or waterholes.
Because hiking scares deer off it's not permitted,
the guide will pick you up and drop you off.
is not that important. Anyone can enjoy a high degree of success
hunting in blinds and stands or in the easier to access areas. Hunters in good physical condition can
challenge themselves by hiking
as much country as desired on the mountain hunts.
