Great Hunting in Ferry County, Washington

The county boasts seven game management units (GMUs), but of particular note is the Sherman 101 unit, which blankets much of the county and provides some of Washington State’s best opportunities for hunting and capturing a mule deer, white-tailed deer, black bear, or turkey.
