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.

Don't buy a tag until the day you go.
Already bought my tags and not to worried about it.  I wasn't really planning on hunting my self.  I was taking other first time hunters out.  Veterans mostly.  My tags were for just in case I get a chance.  They are good for the fall anyway.

That's my plan, if it is open this year.

I guess the big question is.
If they leave it open as it sits now are you going to travel to hunt?
Significant travel not advised
What I'm saying is how many would travel even after they have told you not too ,If Turkey season was left open.
Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

i would.

I would travel to E. Washington and hunt where I haven't been within 300 yards of anyone the last 8 years.

I would camp in my rig.

I can gas up here with mask and gloves, and will bring my own food.

does that seem unwise?
If so, where am I adding risk to myself or others?

Honestly I have no problem with it ,I don't even have a Turkey tag .my son has a tag and I take him every spring .So I already took time off from work for it .Just kinda wish they could make up there mind.

I totally understand your logic but for me, I will be sheltering in place because it is the right thing to do. It is one turkey season, maybe not even all of it so going out to the woods to me, is not even a option.  :twocents:

You and me both.

I've grown to love spring turkey hunting way more than I ever thought I would.

Hey Vandeman, I'm not trying to argue..........   I am trying to understand.
I respect what you bring to the forum, so maybe help me out here?

I'm looking for why I should stay indoors if I can effectively "socially distance" myself while turkey hunting.

I think I get the shelter in place thing........ maybe.

We walk our dogs and have managed to stay 20+ yards from neighbors.
But walking in my neighborhood seems like way more exposure than driving in my car to the wood where I am never close to anybody.

What am I missing?

Thanks.

If you listen to WDFW Director Susewind interview,  all the reasoning behind the fishing shutdown applies to Turkey hunting,  even moreso.

I think the odds are *very good* it will be shut down.

Staying in your neighborhood keeps whatever potential you have for spreading it to your neighborhood, and out of whatever eastern WA county you plan to hunt in.
