Even with four tags I can't seem to shoot them fast enough each fall to put a dent in them. Hopefully some new hunters can find some success this year.

My youngest son will be trying to get his first bird this fall. Sounds like there probably won't be a shortage.

Poor hatch for turkey? Is the same true for the grouse this year?

I drive over from the westside every year to do my civic duty for my fellow Washingtonians in the Colville area. I target nuisance birds on private property during fall with great success. They are thick in the fall near ranches and farms.

I've only been turkey hunting a couple of times with no luck. Maybe in the Spring, I can come over and help you with some of those. :)

Just went to the shop, neighbor has about 40 of them wandering around. Yesterday afternoon when I was leaving herded a couple of dozen down the driveway. Have been working in the shop and heard what sounds like someone throwing stuff against the wall.  It is the turkies scratching and slinging dirt against the wall. 😠😠😠

Couple weeks ago I saw a field with 80-90 turkeys in it.  Biggest flock I've ever seen!!!! Woman walking down the road, I stopped to tell her that I'd  never seen a flock like that.  She lived right there and said she had counted 140 in the same field the week before!!  Lots  of birds in the Goldendale area!!!
