Part of what makes Tacoma a great city is what’s JUST outside the city: lots and lots of woodlands. During deer season, hunters come from all around to claim their spot and seek out a 10-point buck. Tacoma is actually a top spot for deer hunting Columbia Blacktail Deer. The prime spot is in Lewis County which is about an hour south of the city. Some of the biggest deer recorded in history were shot in this area.
