HUNTERS CHECK IN: WDFW Deer Park check station sees 26.3 percent success rate during late deer season…
With the end of late deer season on Nov. 19, WDFW released some of its check station data that was taken in Deer Park two weeks ago.
Chewelah did not have a check station on that Sunday, but did have low returns during early deer season.
In early deer season’s second weekend, of the 23 hunters who stopped at the Chewelah station set up at the WSDOT shop on Sand Canyon Road and Highway 395, two hunters had killed a whitetail buck. Deer Park numbers in early season were 62 hunters who stopped and twelve had bagged a deer on the second weekend. More
