Re: Where in WA?
In 1963 - 1965 I hunted pheasants in the Warden area, hunted doves in Moxee, and fished for Salmon at Westport and Neah bay.
I got my limits quickly.
There is nothing there now.
My father had hunted pheasants in the Ellensburg area in the late 1940s, but by the time I came along, all the pheasant hunting in Ellensburg was gone.
It seems like the pheasant hunting has been pushed all the way to the Dakotas.
I hunted for elk in WA for years and never saw a shootable animal.
When I tried a different state, the first day I woke up, I had 76 elk walking toward me.
In other states I have to drive slowly, or I will run over trophy bucks at night.
I am done with WA for hunting.
I live on Mercer Island, and I can launch a boat for sockeye salmon without going through the 8 hour boat launch line.... if we ever have another sockeye fishery.
