  1. This is a map of just open places to hunt… There are Turkey’s in most of it… DNR, BLM and Forest Service… I would suggest buying a GPS and then downloading one of the Montana Maps for our state, It will then give you accurate position with these maps, as to where you are at, so as not to trespass…

  2. I’m fairly new to the state of Washington and I am looking for a place to take my kids Turkey hunting for the spring 2016 season. I won’t have much time to be able to spend hunting and was wondering if anyone could tell me if the areas around the Republic area would give the kids a good opportunity? We would be traveling from the West side of the state. Any help/advise would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you…

    1. Rich: The Turkey hunting map was developed by the Forest Service and I provided space on my website to display it. You should also note that I am not a turkey hunter. Having said that. I saw what must have been 100 turkeys in a field between Rice and Kettle Falls yesterday. Probably the same group that I slammed on my brakes to avoid a few weeks ago as they crossed the road. The deal is, the Forest Service wants hunters to avoid private land, but that in my experience is where the open fields next to wooded areas are that they like to live. They also like pine nuts, which are also at lower elevations. If you can contact some large land owners at lower elevations, I think that improved your chances though I have seen turkeys at all elevations.
      BTW: I have an old classmate Brian Letourneau, who lives in Olympia, any relation?

      1. Thank you for the info, I will try to work on getting some private land owner information.
        I am originally from from Michigan and as far as I know I do not have relatives in/around the Washington state area but then again you never know. I currently reside in the Mount Vernon area.

        Thank you again for the information….
