oh man there is some great hunting here. about 90 percent of the birds have bands. a huge mix bag of wood ducks, pintails, and my favorite mergansers. In bozeman the hunting is awesome the only downer is that bozeman just recently was noticed to have the highest concentration of the bird flu. so from here on out all bird hunting is closed. you might need to tak e up another hobby. i here that there is some good flower picking this time of year.

where are you coming from? :biggrin:

trenton.murphy,

You will have to excuse the skepticism, but we see this often on the MT and ID Forums. Someone joins and their first posts are "where do I hunt in your area". They receive good info usually by private messages but occasionally on the thread, and then voila! They are never heard from again.

Of course, there are exceptions to the rule.

I have spent the last few weeks all over Montana's bigger towns (my sales territory) and I would have to say that Bozeman is getting very crowded very fast. It is similar to Kalispell and Missoula in this respect. Maybe it still beats the place you are coming from, but if I was moving to MT there are a lot of other places I would look at first.

Thanks for the info. However, I just accepted a job in Washington so it looks like I'll be scouting in that area now instead of MT.

Washington is a supremely ducky state. Are you going to be west of the Cascades or east of them?

I'll be working in Tacoma, WA, which of course is west of the cascades.

You are in luck. Plentiful opportunities abound for hunting east and west of the Cascades.

Keep your eyes open until you learn the lay of the land in Tacoma. It's the kind of town with a definite good side and a definite bad side. The gangs like the bad side. Good luck and have fun in WA.
