Re: Where in WA?

Forks, WA here. Can't believe no one else on here is from Forks yet. Bummer.

Blacktails can get quite big. I was lucky enough to get a 160lb 3 point this year. First deer I have taken in Clallam County.

Was lucky enough to get an elk also!

That's awesome I have taken a few blacktails myself the biggest was in golden Dale on a late muzzle loader hunt, but thos days are gone to many people are hunting that area anymore so I stick to archery elk and if we stick our elks in the first few days we pull out and head up for the high hunt I try to make sure I have a elk and a deer in the freezer every year. Last year we got caught in the smoke from the Forest fire 7 miles in and had to cut our season short by 4 days

Awesome. I usually Bow hunt for Elk as well, but last year I was unable to make the season as we left the state for family issues. Therefore I took part in the rifle season. I have to say, it was a really productive rifle season for me. I think this was due to all the scouting and previous years of bow hunting.

Just got all my arrows ready for this year, and am thinking about doing a high buck hunt in the Olympics for deer. Or possibly heading over to the Methow Chewuch area for Mullies.

hey clarkstar, good work. sounds like a real nice two and a half year old. thats right on the money weight wise, three years ago i shot a perfectly symmetrical 3 point that was right at 160 lbs. the fires last year made pre-season scouting tough. best of luck to you guys this year.

Good Luck to you as well. I was amazed at the perfect symmetry on the rack as well. The tips of two tines were broken off, and they seemed to be broke exactly the same. It was pretty neat.

Live wt. estimate from butcher. Not sure about certified scales etc.. If I recall correctly it was around 100 lbs of meat. So it is assumed all bones heat and entrails were around 60 lbs.
