Hunting partners 2017 Turkey Hunting Season
« on: February 22, 2017, 12:43:17 PM »
Looking to go east Kettle Falls/Colville this season.  Anyone want to buddy up and go or I can meet you there.  I've been there a few times but have had no luck.  May even try Goldendale not too sure yet.   Thanks for looking and hope to make some Turkey Hunting buddies!!!  I am in Port Orchard, Wa.  Thank you!!!

Andy
Lord , we've been here on days before
and often times you've let me score
Now do you think that on this day
you could send a gobbler down my way?
And , if not , just let me say--
you've given me another day
to hunt the bird I love the best.
I don't mind sharing with the rest

I'm thinking about the NE corner.  Put in for spring bear too.  Be a good opportunity for scouting for bear and the moose tag I'm due to draw. :dunno:  Be happy to join up for a turkey. More a spot & stalk hunter here.   Got a good dry camp on wheels.

Hey All, my hunting buddy is battling pneumonia   :yike: so the doc advised him to stay inside and rest for 4-6 weeks. So I'm wondering if any of you want to go hunting?

I'm planning on heading up to Colville/Kettle Falls area. I'm flexible with dates but was thinking 4-5 days around the opener.

I have some experience in general hunting but only a couple seasons into Turkey. No success yet but digging it. Responsible dude in his mid 30s and moderate shape. I should be far less than a handful in the woods.

I to am from Port Orchard, new to Turkey hunting, bought three DSD decoys, and look to head east, trying to decide which direction coville or klickitat. If you need a partner let me know. Also I am always looking for Summer Steelhead on the LC partners to fill a coup,e seats in my boat. I have it dialed in
Thanks, Matt

I am a wildlife ecology major at WSU and a somewhat new turkey hunter (have bagged two birds).  I was wondering if any of you would want to go out and chase turkeys with me? I want to learn as much as possible and would love to get any experience i can or pick an experienced turkey hunters brain! I was planning on hunting in the northwest portion of the colville natl forest this year but whatever works!

Thanks

My name is Ben and this is the first year I plan to go out in search of spring turkeys. Since moving to the PNW I fish steelhead and salmon in SW WA rivers and hunt upland birds. I am looking to learn from a individual or group who wouldn't mind a new guy in their group. From what I have been researching, Klickitat area is where i will be focusing my attention. Of course I have patience, truck, blind, gun and have been looking at decoys.

Well Ben welcom to the funest sport out there , ive been talking to big ugly birds for 15 years , one thing i will tell you is dont hunt around livestock , turkeys will eat there droppings before anything else , its the easy food and they will stay on it if present , if you see them , if you move they see you , no matter the distance , a turkey can read a dime from 100 yards sooooo , good luck out there , if anyone has a clean field tohunt im in !!

I've been hunting and eating wild turkeys for 25 years, I've killed plenty around cattle. I've never heard about this, please post where you got your info.

In the midwest I would bet 3/4 of all turkeys killed live near cattle.  I have killed quite few birds on cattle farms.  Never heard of that before either.

Aright here goes !! ,,  My surgeons general rules of food . 
If it comes in a box.
If its frozen.
If it comes in a can.
If its pork.
If its got high fructose.
Not only dont eat it , dont buy it !
He told me a story of a medical class he had ,,, they were told to bring a pork chop to class on friday , they put them in a dish and left them out till the following monday , when the gotback the pork chop was moveing , thats tbe same thing that im trying to get threw your smart armour take that one to heart cuz im liveing breathing proof this is a true fact that you will deal with one way or another,,doctors are just someone that is healthier than me but im still hear driveing you guys up the perverbial wall so something is working or right ?

You don't need to call me self-righteous you made a statement about turkeys that eat poop are bad. I asked you to post your info. And you came back with name calling. So I  still call it fake news. A guy said this and let's run with it. I'm 57 been eating wild game most of my life, from bears to wild rabbits. You do all the Googleing you want there's always an expert on BS on the Internet. Good luck with your mountain birds, I will hunt them where I find them.
BTW, cook your pork and it won't do that. Now you made me hungry for a pork chop.

I'm not sure what my plans are yet. My husband is most often my partner, but we may be able to team up with someone who wants to get out there. Feel free to contact me if you're interested.

I will be bow hunting from a blind in Mead, WA (a lil NE of Spokane). I hope to fill my 1st tag this weekend. But would love to go again with others, I also have a new shotgun to use, so will be stalking through public and IEP land. So, if anyone wants to tag team Toms, let me know.

I would be game for going after some turkeys. I live in Spokane and am going out for the opener tomorrow. I am not expecting much as it will be my first turkey hunt. If anyone wants to meet up send me a PM.

Hey Everyone,

  I live in Bothell and am wanting to head out Saturday night for a full day, Sunday hunt.  Was thinking around Sunnyside. But am flexible.  Does anyone also want to get out and go after a couple birds?  I can drive or pitch in for fuel/beer/food. Let me know.  If you have access to birds, please let me know and I would be willing to pay cash for a hunt opportunity.
If I'm not trading, I should be hunting, If I'm not hunting, I should quit!

Sorry everybody I started this post and have not been updating you all...I have been out of the country and just got back...I will be hunting with a  couple of buddies going over to the Davenport area and see what we can get next week!!  Good luck to all and congrats to those who have been able to get a Gobbler this year!!
Lord , we've been here on days before
and often times you've let me score
Now do you think that on this day
you could send a gobbler down my way?
And , if not , just let me say--
you've given me another day
to hunt the bird I love the best.
I don't mind sharing with the rest
