I am all about Deer, Elk, Bear, Kitty cats, yotes, Grouse, been wanting to try turkey hunting but just have not had the oppurtunity yet. and this all is done in the state of Washington. although i have hunted in Oregon when i lived there. we would head up to the sled springs area for deer and elk. Love it over there.
Our licenses in California start on July 1st and the first season that is open for me is rabbits. So I usually start off with a couple of rabbit hunts followed by archery deer, doves, quail, general (rifle) deer season, 2nd archery season and band tail pigeons, then more quail and rabbits until the end of January. That's it until the end of March when spring turkey kicks in.
Pigs are available year-round and I think this is finally the year I break down and go after some fresh pork!
I always have my eye open for an opportunity at taken down a wiley coyote but haven't sealed the deal yet in Cali.
When it come to turkey calls some of us have only one or two. Then there are the ones that have and can't go in the turkey woods without at least a dozen or so. Remember that old calls still work. Just take a little time and freshen up your old style calling tactics.There are most likely more than a hundred types of turkey calls out there on the market. Just waiting for you to pull out the green and spend it on them. From Hunter's Specialties, Lynch, and even the famous Drury brothers calls...
