I love this place, cracks me up.

No points awarded or reward received, asked for or allowed for turkeys, it's not why I called it in.  I don't even hunt or fish in WA anymore.  ;)

Like I said I put 99% of the blame on the grand parents, hopefully they get to be embarrassed and harassed a little bit.  Not much is going to happen to a 14 year old.  Hopefully he'll attend Hunter's Ed and learn some game laws.  You think he would have learned on his own?  I doubt it.

I received a call this afternoon from a Female Warden.  She had figured out where Grandma, the one who posted, lives and was en route to make contact.  They appreciated the call and I was more than happy to do it.
Thanks Fred, In my book you did the right thing  :tup:. I guess everyone needs something to vent on.

Thereís going to be a ton of turkey poaching going on between April 15 and May 4th..

I doubt many people will drive across the state to poach turkeys, and nobody i know here hunts them.  I dont think it will be significant.

Where I live no one travels great distances to hunt turkeys. Sure sounds like most people are going to disagree with WDFW and use there turkey tags anyway. I assure you there will be a LOT of poaching going on.

There will be poaching or there is poaching going on. Why wait?  I would guess a poacher probably isnít holding off for any particular date. If someone intends to kill birds during a closed season they will be hard to stop. Hopefully they donít spawn their behavior by involving any kids. Nothing new here.

It wouldnt be very fair if they couldnt buy sodas and junk food. That may lead to someone feeling shame when their friends that are lucky enough to not need electonic benefits did purchase those items.
Have bit of a heart for those that arent as lucky as some of us.

I have a lot of heart for those in need and personally do my part to help many in need, regularly. However, if you're on the public dole, your free food should be basic, healthy ingredients. Using public money to buy soda and cheetos is shameful. I don't judge someone for needing our help. I judge those who aren't mindful that we do so because they're telling us they're in dire need, not so they can keep up with the Jones' poor standards of nutrition. A little shame could go a long way to reducing squandered public assistance. But, then we might hurt someone's feelings.

There are a lot of people on FB right now saying. "Who needs a season to hunt/fish for food". I told some guy to go to the food bank and use his food stamps, and he came back that he's not going to beg for food. Then he said that there wasn't a season on squirrels and rabbits. :bash: Like it's ok to poach them.

Totally agree. I was in line in Safeway and the gal in front of me after buying cookies and sports drinks with her State food card got 100.00 backs in cash back.??? So, what's up with that? Then go buy your booze and cigarettes.

Hypocrisy of people drive me mad. People always complain how liberals get their noses in taking our Gun rights by majority of votes. That dictates to us What guns we can have, magazine capacity and etc. And here we go doing same bubblegum complaining how people should live and how they should eat. Rant off.

Thanks for taking the time to report this Fred

Big difference.  Second amendment is a constitutional right. Buying tax payer funded Cheetos, ding dongs, camels and Mountain Dew are not. Its our  tax payer money that provides Food stamps and they were intended to provide healthy foods to people in need. Look at the huge health problems of people on food  stamps now..Look at the scooter use in Walmart, target, Costco because people are too obese to even walk.  Over weight, diabetes is sky rocketing in children, high blood pressure, heart problems, joint and kidney problems from being overweight, COPD from smoking etc from terrible Diets of food stamp provided carbs, bad fats and sugars. . And tax payers have to cover their health problems too so get hit twice.

It's  ironic our tax payer monies are used to poison the people on food stamps. I often see people on food stamps taking money out of food stamp( debit card) and buying cigs, booze and lottery tickets with the cash. Washington State had to pass a law to prohibit food stamp debit cards from being used to gamble in casinos.

Guns are a Constitutional right. Having your food paid for by other people is not. Charity should be focused on what is reasonable and necessary for survival. The hypocrisy is all yours. Have a nice day.

But seriously why would you go tattle on someone when it doesnít affect you one bit? Turkeys are rats with wings in eastern Washington. The season should be year round, 3/day. They obviously didnít waste the meat. Yes, putting it on Facebook is stupid but not worth reporting them. You mustíve never heard of a true hero of the West, Mr Claude Dallas

Hero? I would not call him that. Was pretty questionable case up until he walked up and shot both officers in the head. At that point it was just flat out murder.

I doubt they are poor.

That cabin looks like its still somewhat under construction. And I know that campers and trailers drop in value faster than fresh fish, but that trailer looks reasonably nice as well. Mainly though, its the wording of the post.

Please donít criticize as this is his right of passage.

First off, no one who views a hunt as a right of passage would phrase it like that. If she were a grizzled, 4th generation mountain lady whose ancestor deserted the confederate army and they've been hiding out in those mountains ever since, that kid wouldn't have to do his "right of passage" by himself, wandering into the woods to shoot a random whatever, and he would have likely done it a lot younger than 14. She would know that hunting seasons exist, and she would definitely know not to brag about it on facebook. And if they were "new poor," they would have relocated to the suburbs, not the woods.

Who is she worried about being critical? Not other grizzled mountain folk. She posted it on "Off Grid Living For Beginners," which is a facebook group of tiny house eco-hippies. She's worried that the REI set would disapprove of the hunting in general, which is why she used such weird wording like "right of passage."

My guess. They decided to bug out to their 90% finished cabin to ride out COVID, and now they are cosplaying mountain men. They are "running low on meat" because they don't yet understand how to buy groceries when their aren't 5 grocery stores within a 10 minute drive.
