Title: WDFW FIRST TURKEY CERTIFICATE?
Post by: jhouckwsu on April 10, 2021, 05:38:22 PM
Son got his first Turkey last week and we submitted all the info for the first Turkey certificate from WDFW and he got and email back saying the inbox was full.  Anyone else get that?  Is it because the kids were successful or did we do something wrong?

I sent an email to my contacts in WDFW.  Hopefully I will hear back soon to get his paper work submitted to WDFW for his certificate.  Congrats to him to.

Send your paper work to FirstTurkey@dfw.wa.gov.  They are cleaning up their other email.  They will take care of you.

Anytime.   Once you get that certificate.  We have a pin that the NWTF does.

Want to feel young again? Have your experienced adult son call in a nice Tom for you and shoot your first ever turkey at the age of 69. Heck yea, I submitted for my certificate! 😁

The certificate is free from WDFW.  The pin is from the WA state NWTF. So we are just covering our cost of the pin.  I think it is less than $10 but I will check on it for sure.
