    Great, I will go up there this weekend, I will let you know how it went, so just to recap, I take 26 towards the coast, do I pass camp 18 restaurant? I went to google and typed lost lake, it wants to take me to Mt. Hood.

    Thanks

    i think that pic was from last summer we were up there about a week ago and got a about a dozen between three of us in an hour they are all about that size just found a spur off of the main logging road that went back to a dead end looked like people camped there and there were several just watching us took a couple at about 200 yards but most were well inside 100 even the dog got one

    Good morning Schwabdl,

    I went to lost lake on Friday and Saturday, once I got a camping spot at the campgroud I went up Lost Lake Rd., there are a lot of dead end roads up there, anyway I drove past Lost Lake and while driving up the road I saw one rabbit, I shoot at it and it went down fast, however once I started dressing the animal I found some white spots on the liver, so I left it there, that was a bummer, after that I returned the next day and could not find the spruce you were talling me about, but it was a nice drive, at least I got to kill one.

    Just wondering, the spruce you were talking about, was it before you get to Lost Lake or after?

    Thanks

    Leo

    Hi Oakley1wa ,

    I did not had much luck, the drive is kind of fun, the rabbit that I shoot was on the road about 2 miles passing lost lake.

    Good luck !

    Let me know how it goes.
