im not from WA but a friend from work is from Colville and seems to have a lot of connections in the area and I believe his family owns some ground there as well. Would this be worth exploring as a nonresident for whitetail deer or other hunting? Thanks!
My ex-wife has a lot of family in Colville, her aunt and uncle own a bunch of ground in the valley and what they didn't own I used to have access to if I told them about her uncle George. Some big whitetails up there north and west of Colville or at least there used to be when I was still part of the family. Nice area to hunt, lots of turkeys also.
I lived there for close to 20 years and Whitetail hunting was very good. Especially during archery hunts as it took in the rut.
I still have friends there and they tell me since the wolves were introduced the hunting is not even close to what it use to be.
I do know people who still hunt the archery season and they do O.K. They also say it's not what it use to be but still have a fun hunt. Lots of over the counter places to hunt on Forest Service property.
