Google, WDFW Go Hunt Maps, Windshield time, etc...... There is no easy or free road to finding good hunting. It is a much longer road and a lot more work to find spots that are not buried in hunters in many areas. Either put in the effort or take up knitting.

Instead of just asking questions for guys hunting spots. Post up who you are, where you are from, etc..... I have taken plenty of new hunters out, and so have other guys here. Join WWA and attend the events. If you are lucky you will find some old guys who like having a youngster to set out their decoys and pull them back in. They can take you under their wing and teach you what you need to know.

No one is going to post hunting spots online where millions of people can see them.

I posted direct GPS coordinates a few seasons ago but the thread was deleted.

I was fine with it; pissed off when I did, but didn't really care. You have to know how to hunt the spots since you can't just show up and throw dekes.
One spot will put you in over your head unless you've spent the time to learn it, a few are extremely tidal, and another is on a military installation. I've got a few you can just throw dekes out, but you have to have the permission to trespass the private to get to the public.

I've learned that some topics I've posted are pointless. Know one is going to show you were to go that's part of life. So your best bet is go through the past hunting regulations go through the counties and started finding places to hunt in those counties or go to the Game Department and they'll give you some ideas. My best bet is go to Nisqually bird watching place there's a crap load of ducks there's or go to Bradley lake in Puyallup they got tons of Mallards in there
