    I live in Umptanum area near Ellensburg. Moved here two years ago from the east coast. Enjoy bird hunting and saw quite a few Huns and Chukar by my house while muzzleload hunting last week. If anyone is interested in coming over and chasing birds or setting up a cast and blast on Yakima this Fall feel free to contact me.

    I was up in the Umptanum today. Saw coyote, deer, deer hunters, and no birds. As the day went on I saw more and more blaze orange. Decided it was too crowded and headed out. I took all week off to goof off. Let me know if you would like to get out for a float or hunt. I have a young german shorthair that's really coming along.

    I'd like to make it over that way.
    I used to go out with my daughter when she was going to Eastern.
    I have two Golden girls that can work it over pretty good.
    I'll PM you when I can find the time.

    I know it's a bit late, but I'm looking for pheasants, not planted, but wild birds. I used to live here, now I live in Sweden and thought I'd be home by now. Business has keep me here longer. Me and my 2 German Shorthairs are heading over tomorrow to hunt somewhere for wild birds. Any ideas??

    Dolph46,
    Sorry I missed your post on Friday. Hope ya got into some birds no matter.
    For wild birds I would head for the Pot holes area. lots of open ground.
    A friend of mine and I hit a spot off Dodson Rd. took one nice older rooster,(a nice tinder dog will be easier to chew) and saw many hens, quail, ducks, bucks, does and a few other hunters.

    Love harvesting birds. No catch and release with a shot gun. Go to the Columbia a lot but would love to be aquainted with new land closer to Seattle. Usually like to hunt on saturdays. Need the Sunday to recover form all the hiking. Chuckeeeerrrrrr.
