If you hunt, you buy two duck stamps and pay significant tax to support public land access.  Hunting in the US is supposed to be an activity where anyone can participate - even those who can't afford to buy up large tracts of land.

Look at it this way, instead of outfitters and guides buying up and leasing ground anyone out there could buy it and just post it free to hunt.  Don't see much of that happening around here either.
Due to the combined contributions of many thousands of sportsmen, many of whom are members here, conservation organizations like RMEF, Ducks Unlimited, Pheasants Forever and others are doing exactly that.
Nature. It's cheaper than therapy.

If you don't mind $800/gun per night, Eagle Lakes is your best option.  Hunted/stayed there many times in the past 10 years.  PM me if you want specifics.  Personally I won't spend that kind of dough, but if it's business or company dime, then I'm all in! :tup:

^^^^^^ waterfowl hunting in skagit valley slowly getting ruined with pay to play hunting. Thanks a bunch know where to hunt!
don't hate the player---hate the game.  Adapt or die...you know at one point people only used spears to hunt-then got pissed when archers showed up who then got pissed at gunpowder who then got pissed at cartridges who then got pissed at repeaters who then got pissed at scopes and so on and so on and so on....the only thing constant in this world is change...sitting back and stomping your feet while hollering it was better before so and so only puts you further behind the eight ball...it will NEVER go back ...do i think the direction it is going is better---NO...but i'm smart enough to evolve and change to keep doing the things i love to do

That's a stretch of a comparison.

$800/night? While I certainly do not believe that to be inexpensive by any sense of the word, fortunately, I will not be laying the bill. Figuring out dates for the trip and getting approval from the powers that be as we speak. Thanks for the heads up.

Also...if you can go during the week you most likely have the lodge to yourself...or at least less people than the weekend. I have been there numerous times at it is truly awesome.  I wish I could afford to live there for a few weeks each season...I think there are a few guys that do  :yike: Have fun, and bring a camera!!!!

Gents,
I see a lot of negativity towards our organization. Just to set things straight....KWTH doesn't nor will we ever go after public access hunting. That is not what we are trying to do. We only operate on private lands and deal with individual landowner/farmers.  BTW...I can't afford $800 per night either.

Respectfully,

JK

My reply had nothing to do with your company.  Believe it or not, not every thread has something to do with kwth.

A real head scratcher there.

Since we are keeping things 'straight'; you couldn't get public lands it if your tried.

Austin and his guys are top notch! Have hunted with them several times the past couple years and have always limited. With that being said the OP was looking for all inclusive which they dont offer although if you stay at the Shilo you are right next to the meet up location and hes way more affordable than eagle lakes
