Huntting Club / Lease

Postby singleyj » Thu Jan 02, 2014 4:00 pm

Hey guys,
Been a duck hunter for over 10 years now and moved up here about 3 years ago. Back in Louisiana I had hunting club where we leased some flooded fields. Was wondering if anyone knew of any affordable clubs in WA? I live in Seattle area but would join a club anywhere within a 4 hour drive I am just getting tired of wading through tide flats and fighting for public areas that don’t produce that well due to heavy pressure from everyone. I’m looking for either a hunting club or possible people to go into a hunting lease with. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Hope everyone season finishes out stronger than mine has been. Although can’t complain too much been out every weekend and still have not been skunked.

If you find a 'good ' and 'affordable' club get your spot and pass along any openings. That's a really tough combo.

A decent one will probably run you $5k-$12k per person per season. Some of the great spots run more or require buyins plus yearly dues. If you can get into French Creek Hunt club in SNOHOMISH you will be in a very good club!

Thats insane... What for? You could buy a house and truck and hunt till ya drop for years for that kinda cash!


I don't know how good the hunting is- but if you have seen pictures of the place- the price makes sense. That clubhouse makes most five star hotels look like Motel 6. It is all relative I suppose. The buy in price for the guys who are members is probably pretty negligible. There is no one who is scrimping and saving to come up with the money. Half million is pocket change. Those dudes drive Mercedes and Porsches to the club. I highly doubt anyone is uncasing a Mossberg in the gun room...

They all have there own garages for there gear and UTV vehicles. Not a bad set up. They purchased a bunch more land to use as roosting areas. It has become such a large draw that if you hunt any of the bordering land, you just sit and watch the waves of birds head into the place. They have lots of feed and flat water for the birds to sit. When your looking to the south across the valley at the club house all you can see is birds working in front of the hillside. One of the members is on the other forum. They shoot a lot of green heads.
