If you tell one person, they will tell one more, who will then tell many more, etc...   :yike:   :bdid:   :bash:   :bash:    :bash: 

I had invested years into an area, and then went in to the local store to see a picture of a familiar bull hanging on the board.  Asked about it, and was told exactly where it was shot.  Now everyone knows.   :bash: 

People are worse than wolves, and this is from a dedicated wolf hater.  You need to be super careful about who you put on your "Hunting Buddy" list.   :twocents:

Were you burned on that spot you shared in secret or was it a spot you found that someone else also found and decided to share with the public?
There are only two types of dogs: wolves and wirehaireds.

That particular example was just to show what can happen with one wrong person.  I have taken many people to my spots that have kept the secret, but I have had a couple bad experiences that make me never want to take another person.

New hunters (or experienced hunters new to upland) I'll give you perhaps the biggest resource you'll ever need to get started:

http://wdfw.wa.gov/

C'mon guys, this state makes it really easy to find places to get started hunting upland birds.  Best of all, you can do it from the comfort of your own home!  This is my first year hunting upland as I didn't have a dog prior, but I've got more spots marked on my GPS then I'll be able to explore this season, all from homework done on the WDFW site.  I'm fully expecting quite a few of those spots to be a bust, but I'm optimistically hopefully about others.

Living on the westside is no excuse for a freebie, it just means you have to do twice as much homework before you hit the road.  Know your target, study your target and their habits, find the habitat, and give it a go!

I've posted your address and phone number on Facebook for all new upland hunters to use and contact for upland areas.

Don't take anyone to your chanterelles spots either.  They will come back and tear all the roots out and ruin that for you almost with 100% certainty.
