Newbie here from La Center, just a bit north of Vancouver/Battle Ground. I am new to bird hunting/shotgunning, and am excited to get out there and do some hunting.

Will be heading to the Vancouver Trap Club this weekend for some practice with my new Benelli Nova pump, then pheasant hunting with my "in-laws" right before X-mas...

Wish me luck! And if anybody knows of a reasonable-priced hunting dog breeder, I may be in the market within the next year or so...

Thanks!
Josh

Hi to the gang--

I just got bitten (hard) by the bug again, after a long dry spell. Mainly interested in clays, and I just sent in my membership app to the Kenmore club after a nice visit with the helpful folks at the club. I shoot a Remington 1100 Classic Trap and a Winchester 1200 (so far...).

Cheers, Vic
Kirkland

Good morning! New to the forum. I live in Brush Prairie (Hockinson) and try to hunt where the birds are. Sometimes I hunt where the birds aren't....it's still fun!

I shoot mostly at the Kenmore range, which is a great bunch, but would be a bit of a hike for you. There is a very nice facility near you in Ravensdale; Seattle Skeet & Trap. They have a website: http://www.sstclub.com/

cheers, vic

No need to be in the military. Call 253-967-8260 / 8262/ 8275, that's the number for the Northwest Aventure Center (NAC) and ask for when they will allow civilians to take the classes so that you could hunt on base. The classes are held sometime around June or July. You'll need to watch a 45min safety video, need your vehicle registration and proof of insurance, your firearms serial number (s) and description (s) and of course Drivers license, the classes are normally held at the Golf course right at Nisqually cut off road I-5 exit.

They will have all maps of the base and hunting regs (do's and don'ts). And you need to call in the day before you hunt for an area you want to hunt on.

It seems that they ask for a lot, but it is not that bad.

They release pheasants on two areas, Areas 22 & 23. These areas are just south of Lacey along Rainier road.

For ducks areas 10 & 12 are good.

:)

I am from ritzville, WA I'm heavily envolved with the local pheasant forever chapter. My wife and I and our two kids hunt and fish here in eastern WA. Our prey is mainly deer pheasants huns coyotes and walleye. But this year we are planning on diving head long into turkey elk ducks and geese. We could use some pointers on the latter. If anyone can help I would be glad to hear from you. :lol:

Hello all,

Also new to this board. I live in Tacoma for now and have been an avid steelheader year round so not much hunting knowledge. I am looking to take up bird hunting next season. Anyone have any pointers for easing into and learning about hunting for pheasant, grouse, quail, or chukar? Thanks!

Thanks for the reply Chocolab. I have my base pass as I fish on the base for salmon. i am really new to hunting though and was looking for someplace/someone to get some instruction from. I can catch steelies, Kings and Coho but don't really know too much about birds. I am working on changing that though! Thanks...

New to the forum. I'm in the Bremerton-Silverdale area of Kitsap County... my job brings me here...

However I'm originally from Gresham, OR.

Just thought I'd drop a line in here.

Hi, I'm new on here, just checking in..
Been muzzleloader deer hunting for a couple years, just got a Remmington 870 super magnum. Just started shooting clays with a hand thrower. Very addictive!
I live in Seattle. Thinking about hunting birds this fall. Not sure what yet.
Tried grouse hunting last year with a .22 rifle with no luck.
That's about it for now, looking forward to doing a lot of shooting.
:D

Lake Stevens here -- Home club is Grainte Falls - If you haven't shot there (Grainter Falls) you should give it a try - 4 trap fields - Americian, continenial and doubles, 5 stand and I beleive the only club with a practice sporting clays course set up every Saturday and a NSCA regestered shoot the 1st Sunday of every month - They have an "Irom Man" shoot on September 27th this year - a real hoot - 50 16yd Trap, 50 27yd trap, 50 Continential, 50 doubles, 50 5-stand and 50 Sporting Clays. - 300 targets in all - one event after another - no time for a breather in between. Dinner after it's all said and done.

Welcome to the site Big Bopper.

I shoot there on Tuesdays and Thursdays. You'll usually se me down at the 5-Stand.


JeffColorado:

I have shot there numerous times. Mostly for their Sporting Clays and Practice Sporting Clays. They also have a nice 5-stand as well.

Mike :D

Hi - I'm from Seattle and we usually go to the Wells Dam area for dove and quail hunting and I've seen some pheasants there this year (during quail season). And I often go duck hunting near Mount Vernon or Conway and sometimes it's good. I only read the first and last page of this thread so far but there are probably tips to be gained here for everyone. :D
