Title: Kitsap Meetup
Post by: Aginor on March 31, 2021, 11:45:36 AM
Weíve been kicking this around for a year or so now thanks to Covid. Any Kitsap people out there that want to meet up for some beers?  I was thinking something like a Thursday towards the end of April (maybe the 22nd) if thereís interest

Is it that time again?

I will join if I can.  My schedule is usually the busiest, so don't rely upon me.  But thanks for trying to get this to work!!

Thatís why I was hoping to do it during the week. Between spring bear and Turkey season, I wouldnít want anyone to miss days in the field

Been involved in several of these, always a great time!

@Aginor, pick your date and your time and just see who can make it. There is no good time for everyone, between family, hunting, fishing, spring chores, spring sports and everything else there is always plenty of life going on. Just do it! and THANK YOU for it!
Once you have it set I will tag a few others that have made one or wanted to make the next. :tup:

Bump this back to the top so hopefully more folks see it. Nice to see a good turn out as it has been quite a while since we had one.

Hey everyone. I'm new to the hunting community. I would really like to come to this so I can learn a few things from all of you.

Scott you are welcome to show up. It is an open invite to members. You may well meet a person or two who shares your interests and can work out details from there. Please understand that a lot of folks take their hunting very serious and a hunting partner is commitment! If a person is taking leave or time away form their loved ones they will be depending on you to do the same. Do not be surprised if there is not 10 looking to go hunt with you after a one time meeting. That said friendships definitely are formed at these meets. Wish you the best and hope to see you there.

So I called Hops & Drops today and they do not take reservations. I will call day of and get on the list though. However, their party size limit is 10 with Covid, so we would need a headcount to make sure we are less than that. The alternative is we pick another place. Iím a classy dude, so I could shoot for Applebeeís if someone wants to do a 2 for $20 date 😉

Is there a polling feature on here? It would be nice to know how many people are planning on coming so that we know if we need to change the location or not. Itís two days out, so everyone should know at this point. If you plan on coming, please say so

The boy and I are planning on being there. Guess if we need to we could have a couple groups....

Even though I am a Lewis County resident, I might be up for having a campfire on my cousins property at Kingston Crossing sometime this summer.
.
We had 15 people Tuesday without any issues...
.
Currently clearing scotchbroom and blackberries for camping/parking and will be there and of May for -3.9 tides, and end of June for the -4...
.
But, maybe we could plan something in July or August...
Title: Re: Kitsap Meetup
Post by: STIKNSTRINGBOW on April 29, 2021, 06:09:44 PM
Although, now that I think about it
...
May 27th.
I will be burning brush and clearing more space...
If anybody wants to be a part of a work "party", bring chainsaws, Clippers, etc...
Any help is welcome...
.
Not sure who you might meet, my cousins live in Suquamish, Poulsbo, etc..
.
They also have friends that like sitting around a campfire..
.
If you want to meet at an establishment. There is that Mexican restaurant across the street...

Not sure what that means, but there is room for 5-6 tents now.
They have been riding quads over the 17 acres, probably parking for anybody that wants to show...
.
The more, the better.
You clip one bush, help pull one root..
.
Those at the first campfire get first pick for tent space..
.
Those damn roots will punch a hole in a tent..
.
This is an "undeveloped" property.
..
Those that want to help get first choice..
.
.
1st come, first served..
.
We could throw a Hunt-WA.
Bbq..
.
Anybody feel like making a work party?
.
.
It is O.K. if your reluctant..
.
"Free labor is never free"
.
.
However....
.
I see potential...
.
And as was stated, the best spots will be reserved by those that have cleared their own spots.
..
17 acres, not all level, biggest issue is the blackberries mixed in with the scotchbroom..
.
.
If you feel like pulling broom, yanking roots, and burning them in a fire.

May 27.

I had a blast. It was great to be out with my Dad talking some hunting with fellow enthusiast. I love telling stories and drinking root beer so it was the perfect setup. Hopefully no one noticed I was only half done with my burger while everyone else was calling for the checks. It's a common occurance for me. Looking forward to the next meetup.
