Whitetail Hunting Areas
Hunt NE Washington close to Idaho and
British Columbia. Bearpaw Outfitters hunt over a million acres of public land and
they lease numerous private ranches. This is the heart of Washington's most productive
deer hunting area.
& Trophy Potential
Shot opportunity is normally 90% or better, this is
the place to go in Washington for the best odds of filling your deer tag. Some large bucks are
taken every year but this isn't really a trophy hunt. It's entirely your choice what buck you
want to pass or shoot. Some of the largest bucks are taken in the mountain areas but the highest
success occurs on the private ranches.
Whitetail Hunting Methods
On the private ranches we hunt in blinds
at food plots, bait sites, alfalfa fields, orchards, game trails, or waterholes. Because
hiking can scare deer off the properties it's not permitted on the private ranches, the
guide will pick you up and drop you off at your blind. In the mountains we drive or hike
old logging roads, clear cuts, and mountain ridges and watch bait sites or water holes.
Physical condition is not that important when
hunting in blinds or hunting the easier to access areas. Hunters in good physical condition
can hike into more remote areas in the mountains.
