Interesting. I went on wdfw to see how much everything would add up to, and got this mssg when I tried to select a turkey tag. 🤔 they wonít even let u buy a tag. Doesnít look promising, guys.

You can't buy a cougar tag either.  >:(

When you try to buy a lion tag does that covid message pop up too,

So of you prescribe to the reasoning that you canít buy a tag because the wdfw employees arenít, then we should be able to go to Walmart and buy them, since Walmart is open. I hope thatís the case, but I suspect wdfw just isnít telling is that they arenít opening turkey season. 🤬

Itís still ran by people in Olympia who arenít there because of the governors proclamation to STAY HOME. Itís not like they werenít selling them before, plenty of people already bought their tags and license.

Go to http://www.theoutdoorline.com/podcasts.  Scroll down to the 2 part Kelly Susewind on fishing closures.  My opinion from listening is; the closures don't have anything to do with Anglers and Hunters keeping their social distances.  But is more to do with the hordes that will descend on certain areas and steal or buy all the toilet paper.

Maybe Spring Bear and Youth Turkey season have a chance, but I could see the general Spring Turkey season be limited to the County you live in.   :twocents:

Cases increasing.


East of the Cascades, local health districts in 17 counties reported more than 380 cases and 11 deaths, according to the state health department. One hundred of those cases were in Yakima County and five of the deaths were reported in Benton County.

In Spokane, a woman in her 50s died from the disease in a hospital Saturday, marking the second local death within a day, according to the Spokane Regional Health District.

Correct. Itís to prevent travel because weíre supposed to be staying home.

Iím told Yakima looks like normal. Business as usual. Nobodyís paying attention to the orders put in place. What do you know... cases rising. Weird. Franklin county is at 16 cases now too. Hmmm.

from what I can tell Yakima is mostly paying attention to the order. I am shut down for working in the Yakima area. I am an essential employee and we are not working in Yakima. Having to travel to tri cities to work.
Happiness is being in the woods!!!

I hear that you can buy tags in a store.  I thought I saw a post somewhere in the forum that the director of WDFW was on a podcast and said they will make a decision or decide on something on the 1st for turkey ans spring bear.  Just what I heard.

Yakima is a joke.  Not even close to following the shelter in place instructions.
It is foolish and wrong to mourn these men.  Rather, we should thank god that such men lived.  -General George S. Patton

Don't buy a tag until the day you go.
