Welcome Gramps! So where in Washington do you live? It's great to have another Washingtonian on here. I'll be hunting deer and elk in eastern Washington (near Cle Elum) and mulies in eastern Oregon this year. Then I'm hoping to hunt Idaho for mulies in 2005.

ELKY .. works real well on the smaller ones. You gut them, make an insicsion between the back leg tendons slip the front legs through on the same sides and I use a zip tie to fasten them together. Then throw your back pack inside the cavity and slip into the deer like a packpack. Deers head goes over your shoulder and the back legs act as a great rifle rack in the front Very important to tag it with flouro orange though :eek: ;)

Aha Ridgie the kiwi way mate, you ever hunted down here to learn that?? only trouble I've ever had was once carrying out a red hind I stepped into a hole crossing a river, It was like deers revenge I couldn't get the bitch off and she was trying to drown me, my hunting mate thought it was a great laugh untill he realised I wasn't joking :eek: .

Welcome Ken. I ain't calling you gramps as I am 53. You will get a lot of info here but you'll want a tall pair of boots for a lot of it. Great site though, you'll enjoy it here.

Welcome gramps, looks like lots of WA guys here, some from the MM board.
I myself hunt
Deer in Winthrop,
Elk in either MT ST Helens or Taneum/Manastash ridge eastern Wa area, depending on my mood.
Turkeys in Chewelah,
Shed hunt in eastside elk ranges,
Call predators (yotes and cats,) best call in was 7.5' female cougar, either eastern WA or Jefferson county.
Halibut , salmon and steelhead out at the coast and in the straits.
Duck hunt Kitsap county
I have had lots of good info passed to me on the MM board and tried to share some back as well, this board seems like a good place to exchange info.

Welcome aboard Mad Max...Where do you actually hang your hat..I was there in that state as a resident for a ton of years and remember having to travel all over the place as you have stated just to maybe get to see some thing elusive to hunt, now I just leave town on foot and am in the middle of a lot of good hunting...Guy's out here are totally spoiled and have no idea as a general rule of how well they have it, most think shooting elk out of fields when the snow pushes them out is the best hunting has to offer. Look forward to your pics and stories...
