Goldendale was VERY busy. Ive never seen even a fraction of that many people for an opening weekend.  The older I get the more and more I just sit back and let the hard chargers blow their wad and clear out before I get serious. It was good to see people out in the hills though. Lots of smiles and laughs around camps and nobody wearing masks   :IBCOOL: :tup:

Itís hard to get too worked up over a turkey.  Heck, just shoot one and pass it around and hold it for a photo op.  They all look the same. Lol
As much as I love my space in the outdoors,  itís nice to see some normal people with smiles.

I enjoy taking kids turkey hunting, never buy a tag for myself but I'm thinking archery I might do.

Most people I have ever seen in our area too.  But everyone we bumped into or talked to were polite.  Funniest thing was of the few people we talked to, they all said they had been hunting in this area for 30 years.  I don't remember which year I started Turkey hunting but I have been deer hunting this area for 29 years and I had never seen any if these people before  :).

Yeah, I don't get the road hunting crowd.  I'd rather save the gas and miles and just buy a juicy one from the store  :chuckle:

Lol ya. Every turkey around here is either a Jake or a Tom. They all have 1/2Ē-3/4Ē Spurs and 8 1/2- 9 1/2Ē beards. Some make nicer fan mounts then others but who cares. I just love the meat as much as anything.

Lots of poaching on private property going on!  :bash: :bash:

I went out to my property the second half of last week. A full week after the opener. It was incredible to see the amount of trespassing on my property. I do have it posted extensively and still feel I need to put up more signs. Half the signs have my number on them so you can call and talk to me. Crazy how many people have been "hunting it for 20 years" when the previous owner had it posted as well with his number on it. Also incredible the amount of corner cutters. There is literally a road that will take you to where you are walking... two of them actually that I would take my wifes mini-van on. The best part is they are walking a few hundered yards across a corner on my property to then cut through another private property to then I hope hunt on timberland. I dont understand the urge to walk through and/or hunt my property when there are 1000's of drive-in accessible acres surrounding it. Shoot, I even drove in from one of the other roads because from a hunting stand point its a way better route.

Pretty sure we saw a couple young guys trolling private looking for birds.  Their tracks in the road clearly indicated they were not just passing by.  It was not my property and I couldnít tell you if they had permission.....though I doubt it.  Just drove by and waived.  Whatís a guy to do??   I would bet they were up to no good.

If you aren't on it, it'll be abused.

Sucks, guy I know bought property near the 'Russians'....I tried to warn him...

Opening morning he found like 6 fresh gut piles, he'd been feeding deer hoping to hunt his property

Spotted a lone tom on Saturday in a field on private while on the way to a different spot. Decided to swing around to the public on the back side of the property to try to call him in. Got set up and got a few gobbles out of him. Felt like a good setup.

Then heard a diesel back on the main road pull up and stop followed by a couple shotgun blasts...convinced someone poached him off that property. Super frustrating when you're trying to do everything by the books.
