Hey everybody, my name is Dan and im not so new to elk hunting, all the guys i hunted with have moved on to different seasons so i dont really have any huntin partners left. I've got a westside archery tag, Im fairly good at tracking, ive got modern archery equipment and know how to handle it well. (lots of practice time) im strong and able to hike and pack long distances. been hunting elk for about twevle years with some succsess, still havent killed a bull but meat is meat. I'm very in tune with sharing the kill with anyone involved in the hunt. It was a tough year for deer for me me so it would be great to put some elk in the freezer. So if anybody knows where the critters live and need a birddog in the thick stuff im your guy. Shoot me a pm and lets talk.
Never give up, he will show up.

I'm hunting the Blue Mountains West special permit for Whitetail from November 7 - 19, 2012. Looking for a hunting partner, especially if you've hunted the Blue's.

If anyone wants to chase some grouse around before modern deer, let me know.  I have a good spot if you do!  I live in Spokane

Blue or ruff grouse?

Ruffs and spruce.  I'm not giving away my blue grouse spots, they're too close to my deer hunting.

Yup, we got them in the NE corner.  Spruce do have the red comb above their eye and then males are really dark, almost black.

Dang I'm tired of shooting ruffs! Haha. Never seen a spruce before. Of course I mostly hunt the blues.

I want to eventually hunt Lion and Bear and need a partner, the only requirements are that you either be as good or a better shot than I or at the very least a slower runner....   :)

Can't wait to hunt again after all these years away!

Those who assume that I assume are going to eventually approach the conclusive event where their conclusion will be that I'm not assuming anything!

Hi all,

I'm a new hunter, actually haven't gone yet. Took me a whole freakin' year to get into a hunter safety class that jived with my work schedule and didn't fill up instantly.

My brother-in-law recently moved to Washington from Iowa, where he was a big-time hunter. He does bow and modern, deer / elk / pheasant. We are trying to get into hunting here. Me, I'm a complete novice, and him, he's trying to find some good places. My understanding is that he's been getting pretty discouraged because he doesn't know where to go. I understand that hunters have a sort of etiquette that they don't give away their hunting spots, makes perfect sense to me, but also leaves us, new to Washington, pretty mystified on where to go.

We live in Tri-Cities Richland/Kennewick/Pasco. This weekend we are going into the blues to a place my brother-in-law has scouted out but he doesn't seem very confident that there's a lot of deer where he's going.

I was hoping to get some advice on how to go about finding a decent place to hunt. I appreciate the importance of "boots on the ground" scouting places out, looking for deer sign, etc, but how do you know where to go in the first place?? What methods do you recommend for finding a good spot? What methods can be employed to effectively approach private landowners? Just looking for advice, thanks in advance for any input.

This late in the game, your behind for access to private land.

I'd stick to the public land that you have already scouted. Theres deer in the Blues. A lot of land and its thick. Get out and have fun  :tup:

Yeah we have plans for this year but I'm still hoping to get some general advice for next year, particularly how to approach private landowners in general, what is good and what may be perceived as bad.

I'd  also be curious to hear about general etiquette for getting permission to hunt private lands.  I would like to work with a landowner or two from early in the year so I could get to know the area and game.
