New, never used Bear Man Rick Hand Call. Rick calls this design spalted tamarind.

This was purchased for a spring bear hunt, but I left it behind and have decided to use my electronic call in the future. Purchased for $35. My loss, your gain. $20 shipped. PayPal preferred.

Located in Lake Stevens. Can meet within reasonable distance.

No issues with loading the mag or feeding. I'm sure you'll be happy with what you get  :tup:

Nice, but yes now that I got everything situated I'm pretty sure I will be happy with the final end results. Really on crunch time now to try and get this thing ready for modern rifle deer and elk season.

Hi everyone!

I'm a new hunter and new to Washington State (been here for a year) and I'm looking to do some modern firearm hunting in Western Washington. I've got a rifle and have put in enough time at the range to the point where I am starting to feel comfortable at ranges of 100 yards. I have a bear, cougar, elk, and deer tag and I'm happy to go after any of them! I'm looking for a partner or mentor is who is willing to accompany me out into the field - would rather not go on my first few hunts alone! My other hobbies are hiking and running trails in the back country so I'm definitely physically fit enough that I won't be a liability.

Definitely looking for feedback from more experienced hunters so that I can improve. I'm very motivated and looking to take the deep dive into the hobby and getting out into the field!

I'm located in Seattle, but I have a car and am willing to travel wherever in Western Washington. My availability is mostly weekends at this point.

Look forward to hearing from you all!

If you dont get any bites here... Try the 2 sportsmen clubs you may have some luck due to your location.

Good luck, If it wasnt so far away Id try and shoot one with my bow, only way I havent killed one yet!

Anyone have anything specific to say about the mule deer? Not that I really have a preference to which one, it just seems that some of the response I get seems to mention WT specifically but nothing about the mule deer...

Well, do we know the points actually were restored after being able to hunt for six days? We know he THINKS that's the case. But maybe not.
I am curious about that as well.  I would love to see the actual email and how it is worded.

MH sausage gravy and biscuits didnt move the needle much for me.

May I make a suggestion?


toss the appropriate packet in your homemade freeze dried meals

Usually have my own stuff that we freeze dry. If I have to slum it with MH, I stick to the less expensive and simpler options: Mac'n'Cheese, Lasagna, etc. There are better ones but add a salt packet, black pepper, chili flakes, sriracha packet etc. and it is just fine.
@Jonathan_S do you have a freeze drier or do you just dehydrate it?

Freeze dryer.

Which brand do you have?  Every one I've looked at is $2K-$5K. 

25 years ago I was the engineer responsible for the Mountain House line at Oregon Freeze Dry....small world.  But got to taste all the test recipes from the food scientists on staff alot.   Recipes have changed over the years of course, but my go-to's are Stroganoff and Chili Mac.  Lasagna and spaghetti with meat sauce are not what they used to be.  The biscuits and gravy is decent for a freeze dried meal.  Chicken primavera used to be good but not a fan of the current recipe.
