Hey you guys, I'm new here on the forum. Just thought I would introduce myself, I currently live in the NE part of the state about 20 miles out of colville. I'm big into waterfowl deer and turkey, I may make a couple trips around the state this year just for the heck of it. Any of you guys around the colville area or pass through? Wouldn't mind trading hunts. The best time of the year is fast approaching :smile: have a great day guys :beer:

Welcome. I have been watching the ducks and geese move into the area. Great time of the year with lots of feed around. Should be a good one.

I grew up in Colville and usually make a trip over there two or three times during the season. I know I will be over there on Veterans Day weekend and once more before that. 20 miles in which direction? And what kind of work did you find near Colville? That's some pretty country over there and the rivers often some great hunting and fishing opportunities. Welcome to the forum.

I grew up in Colville also and still have a ton of family up there. I live in Spokane. I don't get that far north any more during the season. I should there are some cool places around. If you ever travel to Spokane I am sure we could set up a hunt together. I hunt solo a lot.

You out the Addy-Gifford Rd then? Or maybe the Orin-Rice Rd? Some excellent Turkey hunting out that way. A few of the land owners on the river side of those mountains offer up season permits to access their land for a very reasonable fee. Look into it early and start scouting around the end of Duck Season. You should be fairly close to the Columbia as well so you'll get some good diver action pretty much all season. If you wanna go after geese that far north on the Big C... You'll have to do it early in the season. A lot of guys have taken the lazy way of driving their boats up river from rafts of geese and then killing the motor and letting the current take them down into the birds. The geese wise up to that pretty quick though and then tend to avoid the river as a loafing spot. They'll still roost out there, but during shooting hours they'll keep to the fields and smaller lakes.

I Own quite a few acres in that area :wink: if you hunt turkeys over here may wanna change your plans.... The hatch was very poor this year and the birds that survived 72% of them were infected with blackhead dieseases. Local biologists said approximately 33.7% of the existing birds had passed this summer and only 29% of this years (lower then average) hatch have lived into the end of august. Sad but true... I have heard it all first hand. but Ive been chasing the geese over here for a lot of years and know how to shoot em from opening day untill the last day... I guess you could say ik the land a tiny bit :wink: as far as divers go........ upper Big C numbers are too low to bother with last couple years :yes:
