I hunt the High Buck season up in the Pasayten Wilderness Area.

So it's just folks on horseback or on foot, which limits the hunters substantially.
They only open up 4 of the designated wilderness areas and the Lake Chelan Recreation Area in the Cascades for this hunt (then the small ones around the Olympics), so pretty limited really considering there are 31 designated wilderness areas in Washington State.
Just gotta pay your dues and find your spot, which I've done.
