New to forum here. Should be interesting. I burned up a half a tank of gas looking for coyote hunting spots. Found a ton of No Trespassing signs. oh well. Ill try the FFTH areas tomorrow. My guess is you hard core guys have private land access. Ill try knocking on some farmers doors tomorrow. I live in Pasco :dunno:

It can be hard gaining private land access until you have developed relationships with a few property owners.  It is like anything else though, the first ones seem impossible, but it does get easier. 

Remember this as you begin gain access:  You are known by the company you keep, so choose your hunting partners accordingly.  As you get permission to hunt and are developing relationships don't include anyone on your hunts who doesn't have any skin in the game.  If someone hasn't been willing to put out the effort it takes, it has been my experience that they will not appreciate what having that access means.

There is a surprising amount of public land in this state but it can be hard to find.  I hunt strictly public lands unless I get an invite to hunt private, I don't bother trying to acquire private lands usually too much bother as there is some public land fairly close.

I use a combination of BLM maps, WA Atlas and Gazetteer, Kirsch public lands GPS chip and a small portable computer to access county assessor info if I find public land that is posted(public lands do go into private ownership at times) or if the BLM map and GPS chip conflict. 

I hunt up to five states a year and use this set up in all of them, it works great.
After the first shot the rest are just noise.

Some of the CRP FFTH lands are wastelands.  You should see sign of scat etc.

IF you get private folks that want coyotes removed, be sure to be very respectful of cattle etc and let them know your results.  IF you can get a name for being successful, you might get referred.   :twocents:

Go to the Yakima Training center and kill all the coyotes they have, they used to have tons of them.  The YTC is a military training center, easy to get in.

Tons of ground to cover here, for sure.  You could hunt all winter long, and see new ground each day.

Yes it does....Went out today to try access to 5 DNR parcels. Everyone of them had private land,locked gates,no trespass signs etc. Around them. NO ACCESS TO OUR PUBLIC LANDS.  DNR land specifically.  There has to be a workaround. I know it's always been like this...but why ?   My rant is over..thanks guys :bash:

Did these sections of DNR land have public roads to them? If not, then this is a very common situation in many states, not just Washington. It's unfortunate, but it's just the way it is and it's to be expected. Do your homework and determine which ones are accessible before leaving your house. If you don't then you're just going to see nothing but no trespassing signs just as you already experienced. Look up DNR Public Land maps, they can be useful. Also county assessor maps online are helpful in determining which roads are public.

 :) Gearnut, Dodson road area gets hammered purty darn hard. I grew up in the area and hunt there still. I look for small pockets over there, brushy sump ponds, brushed areas around circles, fence corners, little brush holes and corners where it can't be farmed. wet areas below hills and on hills(where it can't be farmed), holes out in the wheat fields, are you getting a theme here?
I feel like I am giving up a great secret. Don't look so big you miss the coyotes.
If you like this, (if it makes sense)  PM me, mebbe, mebbe I'll give up one road area, I know about that everyone drives by.

I used to get frustrated trying to access all the school properties. Almost every section 16 and 36 (I think) per township/range block is owned by the state and a ton of it is landlocked. Most counties have interactive property maps on their assessors website and with that if there is a right of way you will see it.
Good luck!
My interpretation of the rules are open to interpretation.
Once I thought I was wrong but I was mistaken.
