Re: Crappy year...
I am on the east side of Washington. I hunted deer last year in between 17 moose. They changed my favorite spot to four point minimum and out in the flats where I hunt mule deer, I honestly did not see a single deer this year.
I drew nothing and it will take a decade of drawing to even get close under their system.
The good news is that I am working on getting into better shape and am planning on a long range hunt/stalk to get something at a great distance. Wyoming looks like fun everytime I drive through I admire the countryside.
