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.

Welcome aboard. I worked at hanford up until being layed off in June of 2011 at that time I was living in Moses Lake and driving to Hanford each day. Saw a lot of big bucks and bull elk.

Re: Where in WA?

For years I hunted 5 miles North of Handford, the Waluke, for ducks and pheasants.
Then the feds took it from the state ~11 years ago.
It was very empty of game and the feds got me out of the sack and told me to move my tent 5 feet closer to the road. It is all non toxic shotguns now and not planted.
