I was reading the hunting regulations last night for Washington State and I may have to take my dad hunting up here next season. My dad is 80 years old and is a disabled vet (deaf as a post). Washington State is EXTREMELY generous to this group. The fees are 1/2 to 1/4th of the resident fees. They get to hunt in the bow season, get preference to special permits, can shoot from the car. It is really generous. I can also be his designated companion. There is also a large population of elk near Mt. St. Helens that they are doing several herd reduction special hunts for and it is only about a 3-4 hour drive from where I live.
