Stay away from western Washington. It has become over crowded and overpriced. Going anywhere and doing anything is an expensive time consuming hassle now days. It didnt used to be like that. The hunting areas have receded and disapeared and the ones left are hunted so heavily that you cant hunt without 100's of other hunters in the area. Once you cross over the mountains into eastern Wa its better but theres not as much work.
And the comment about the hippies is true. If only we could get a hippie hunting season.
