I guess I will be the first to welcome you to Washington State. As far as places to hunt on the coast, the only place I have ever hunted over there is SedroWoolie( for ducks), and I don't know if that is anywhere near you. :welcome:

Thanks, I guess everyone thought I was asking to be a blind buddies. I was just asking for a general area. Your from Tri-Cities, I hunted on the river by Umatilla quite a bit. My family is from Irrigon. I appreciate your welcome and hope someone can help me out.

Did you get to hunt Oregon this year? How is McCormick's doing? I have a buddy in Hermiston that I shoot with on occasion. He's got a couple spots on the Umatilla but always talks about McC's. Seems like a lot of work to hunt that when the reserve is free and just down the road. Maybe I'm wrong though.

It's hard to get a good blind at McCormick unless you have it reserved. A lot of guys go there and the standby line is way to long. If you have ever been there, the big white house on the hill overlooking the refuge was my Grandpa's and my Uncle runs the farm on the refuge. I alway go above Mcnary on the river. There is a lot of spots by Warehauser Beach that I've built many a blind at. Big rafts of birds up there and not many hunters at all. I'll probably get chewed out for telling you that. I've always figured that most hunters work as hard as I do or want to, so what's the harm in being friendly. I hunted mostly in Woodburn by Oregon City this year, I had a little pond a guy let me hunt.

Places to hunt around seattle

Postby mjlduckman » Mon Dec 12, 2005 4:26 pm

Hey wingbanger,

There a few places near ya, but for the better stuff you'll have to do some driving.

Closest is probably the Nisqually delta, just south of Tacoma, then south and west to the Chehalis, Grays harbor and Willapa Bay. You could also head out near Fall City and hunt the rivers there a few geese and duck around there too.
Check out the WDFW water access sites and go from there.



Good luck and welcome aboard
May the skies above you; be blackened with birds

I'll probably never hunt McC's and it wouldn't really matter at least for the next 3 years because I'll be in Japan. The Navy was nice enough to move my family and myself over there for the next 3 years. I am already counting down the days until I can get back to Eastern Oregon. My buddy and his wife just bought 60 minute photo in Pendleton so I know I'll have a kill zone when I get back. I won't tell anyone about your hole. There's only about 3 people I know over there so it's safe. But thanks for the tip. We are quite a ways away but we'd be glad to hunt with you in the Skagit delta near Conway.
