Iím new to hunting in WA. I have a rifle tag for Elk this year. Would love to join an experienced hunter to learn the ropes. I also have access to JBLM if anyone wants to join me. Iím in Yelm but traveling is no issue. Trying to take advantage of being stationed out here and experiencing the beauty of this state. Thank you.

I'm married and haven't done a personal ad in years, but here we go...

If you are willing to share your time and knowledge, you'll make a good friend and hunting partner.

I'm 52, over on Bainbridge Island (long timer). No one in my family hunts or fishes, so I am diving in on my own. I am RELIABLE, easy-going and willing to work for it. New to hunting, not new to the outdoors with experience hiking, camping, mountaineering.

Looking to hunt for upland birds and large game, need advice and someone to hunt with. I do some fly fishing, too. I can hunt mid-week (preferred) or weekends, and enjoy traveling the state seeing new places and having great adventures.

Recently purchased a hunting rifle (30-06). Also have a 12 gauge & a 357 handgun for protection. For next season, I plan to bow hunt as well.

Geared up and ready to do this....

Hi everyone!

I'm a new hunter and new to Washington State (been here for a year) and I'm looking to do some modern firearm hunting in Western Washington. I've got a rifle and have put in enough time at the range to the point where I am starting to feel comfortable at ranges of 100 yards. I have a bear, cougar, elk, and deer tag and I'm happy to go after any of them! I'm looking for a partner or mentor is who is willing to accompany me out into the field - would rather not go on my first few hunts alone! My other hobbies are hiking and running trails in the back country so I'm definitely physically fit enough that I won't be a liability.

Definitely looking for feedback from more experienced hunters so that I can improve. I'm very motivated and looking to take the deep dive into the hobby and getting out into the field!

I'm located in Seattle, but I have a car and am willing to travel wherever in Western Washington. My availability is mostly weekends at this point.

Look forward to hearing from you all!

Hi. I live in Seattle but grew up in Spokane/TC. I donít have any hunters in my social circle. I picked up my fish and game licenses, a benelli nova, and two turkey tags. But, I havenít touched a firearm since exiting the service 10 years ago.

Iím looking to learn how to hunt/fish and would appreciate any guidance or opportunities to tag along on either.

For starters, Iím think Iím gonna try and catch something from Greenlake once it gets stocked this month.

Hey everyone, been doing tons of reading on this site and have been pouring over maps, but I have almost no friends that hunt and would like to change that! My brother hunts but moved back to CO (where I am from and where the mulies and elk are plentiful). I have a compound bow and a 12 gauge and live in the Seattle area.

I am willing to drive / split gas (no truck, just my RAV4), plan trips and burn boot leather. My interests are turkeys, deer, grouse and ducks. I am a big fan of giving before getting and leaving places cleaner than I found them. For sure willing to trade work for access or contribute any way I can in exchange for mentorship. I'm coachable, reliable and independent, just looking for like minded folks to share the outdoors with mostly.

Thanks!

Ditto on that, I'm also more than willing to take service men & women out.  Knock on wood there should be plenty of action this year.  I'll post on the open seat thread when we get there as well.

Here are 2 great organizations that you could benifit from. Washington waterfowl Association. The seattle chapter meets at the kenmore gun club and i think they have an in person combo zoom meeting. They are on Facebook and have a website.

Silver Arrow Bowmen in Mount Vernon. The best range in Wa, Im a tad bit biased. Membership is cheep! 50 target walk through course, indoor range, and depending on where in Seatown you live not that far away. We have/had members from Seattle to BC. It is where i shoot, have made great friends for hunting and shooting. Also on social media.

Both orgs have dedicated threads about them on here under organizations, charities and events.

In archery we have something like the way of the superior man. When the archer misses the center of the target, he turns round and seeks for the cause of his failure in himself.

Hey all. My son and I did some scouting around Rustler's Gulch/West Branch Wild Life Area last year. I bumped a doe and we heard some turkey into late summer and interested in getting deeper into the area as it doesn't seem heavily trafficked for hunting.

Horseshoe Lake has the West Branch of the Little Spokane running through it and out down about 4.5 miles through the Wild Life Area and into Eloika lake. My father's house is on the N end of Eloika.

Does anyone know if this portion of the creek can be paddled (canoe)? The wildlife area has no overnight camping and I feel like launching at Horse Shoe and traveling down to my Dad's on Eloika would be the quickest and most accessible way to reach the inner portion of the hunting area.

Anyone have any experience or thoughts on this area? I'd primarily be interested in calling in a spring turkey.

Hey everyone, I'm a new hunter located down in the Vancouver area. I fully intended to plan out a solo hunt for this fall and have done a ton of research, but I'm feeling pretty overwhelmed and decided I'd see if anyone is looking for a hunting partner on here. I'm 36 and I was in the Marines, so I'm not new to firearms and have a 30-06, a compound bow that I have been practicing with for a couple of years now, and all of my own gear. I haven't bought any tags yet, so I'm open to any weapon/species, and willing to travel within the state.

I appreciate this community and have found the info on here to be a great resource so far. Thanks
