Permits would have never changed.  Land owner access would have never changed.  Rimfire season would not have opened up land owners to others hunting.  Rick contact the local nusiance cooridinator because that is what the game warden is going to tell you.  The gane warden does not issue kill permits.  Also kill permits are not year around there is a time limit.  I believe it is only fall up to February.  According to their WAC.

I would like them to trap and relocate them on State land with good habitat so more hunters would have a chance where there are good turkey populations. Does that make sense? They are a nuisance but I kinda like watching them year-round. I see turkey behavior 7 days a week 365 days a year. Turkey knowledge overload.  Picture....Please practice Catch and Release turkey hunting.....

Don't wanna be that guy,
But there is no place locally to transplant birds,that stateland is more than likely already full with them.
Only one place for them to go. 🚽 after you eat them.

That is being discussed and there are places that we can locate birds.  Yakima basin for one.  6 years ago I had them considering the west side up north.  The state mandates anything like trapping.  The NWTF would love to do it.

Yea , I was expecting a few comments about the fly...My response...what do you think I used for bait???  Trick is to grab them before they grab "YOU".

Last week I screen shotted the new changes with the rimfire allowed in the fall as well as the new 3 turkeys allowed in Spokane County in the spring but now I'm not seeing it anywhere on the website? Did they already change it back? Anyone got a link to it?

If you Google it, it pops up but when you click the link it's no longer there? Is it starting next year only and Wdfw posted it prematurely last week and took it down?

The proposal to allow use of rimfires for turkeys was not considered by the Commission and thus their use was never legal.
Nature. It's cheaper than therapy.
