After almost a year of searching, multiple disappointments, days of stress, sleepless nights, we have finally found and closed on our dream retirement house.  It's not exactly what we were hoping for but close enough.  80 ft. of water front with a beach on a lake.  Besides the houses 2 car garage and 1 car carport there is a 3 car detached garage.  I have my own boat launch.  Cement dock.  Landing area with a fire pit.  Also have a small piece of land across the access road for a garden and more parking.  House has a wet bar in the downstairs.  We are stoked! :dancing: :fishing: :cue: :reeling:    Hope the picture shows ok.

So the hunt is in timber land only?  What company?

I have a friend that drew this area but we don't know anything about it.  Can someone please enlighten us on were to go and how the hunting is and anything else that could help him be successful.  He will be traveling quite a long ways to hunt this area.  I told him to go clam digging too!   Thanks

Checking in.  Sorry guys for not keeping up with this.  I'm in the middle of a real estate deal right now so it is taking up a lot of my time.  I still have to get my multi tag stuff in!  Hope I can find some time to go east for a turkey hunt.  Team #1 sounds great to me.

Arrest warrant issued in zebra mussel case

OLYMPIA - An arrest warrant has been issued for a commercial trucker from Michigan charged with transporting invasive zebra mussels into Washington state aboard a 50-foot cabin cruiser.

David Derderian, 44, of Fraser, Michigan, was charged in Kittitas County Lower District Court last November with unlawful transportation of a deleterious exotic species and making false statements to law enforcement officers.

The court issued a warrant for Derderianís arrest when he failed to appear for his arraignment Jan. 13, said Michael Boska, deputy prosecutor for Kittitas County. 

"We appreciate the courtís help on this case," said Bruce Bjork, chief of enforcement for the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW), which sought the initial charges against Derderian.  "We need to do everything we can to keep zebra mussels and other invasive species out of this state."

Zebra mussels are small, freshwater mollusks that can quickly infest lakes and rivers, threatening native fish species and public water systems, Bjork said.  Since the 1980s, when zebra mussels entered the Great Lakes in shipsí ballast water, they have spread to more than 20 states, including Michigan.

The invasive mussels often spread by attaching themselves to boats and trailers. Washington state law prohibits the transportation of aquatic invasive species on boats or trailers and allows state authorities to stop them for inspection.

The charges against Derderian stem from the delivery of a Sea Ray cabin cruiser from Lake Michigan to Washington.  Derderian was hauling the boat when he was stopped Nov. 14 by the Washington State Patrol at the Cle Elum truck scale on Interstate 90.   

State Patrol commercial vehicle officers found zebra mussels on the boat and alerted WDFW, which has special equipment to decontaminate boats carrying zebra mussels.  But Derderian left with the boat and continued to Blaine before the WDFW officers could arrive at the scene, according to the departmentís report.   

Bjork said WDFW officers later intercepted Derderian in Blaine and stopped him from launching the boat.  Based on Derderianís statements and actions, they then asked the Kittitas County Prosecutorís Office to press charges. 

WDFW has also referred the case to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and National Marine Fisheries Service for consideration of federal charges for interstate transport of the invasive mussels, which would be a violation of the Lacey Act.     

"We are pressing for federal charges in this case," Bjork said.  "Itís essential that we have peopleís cooperation in our efforts to keep zebra mussels and other invasive species out of Washington.  Besides the risks to fish and shellfish, these invaders have already cost industry, government and private citizens billions of dollars in damage to water and hydropower facilities in this country."

Gear / Re: Anyone have experience with Cabela's tent stoves?

Well I was down at Cabelas last weekend.  Actually friday night.  Bought myself another cot, gun case, 6-pack of propane tanks and low and behold they had a Outfitter Pkg. Cylinder Stove there.  Snagged it.  I figure I can order the pellet feeder from Cylinder Stove website and add it on as it is a different design than what Cabelas is selling.  Not sure why that it is but after talking to some other folks and Cylinder Stove company themselves it appears they have the bugs worked out.  I appreciate all the input here.

That's what I was thinking.  Cylinder Stoves website has another version of the feeder that appears to have an angled tube on the feeder.  I called them and asked them why and was told that they had to redesign it cause the burn started going up into the feeder tube.  Wonder if that's what would happen with the Cabela's one?  I have Cabela's Gift Card aand it would be very cheap for me to get one but hate to have to go through the pains of finding out it doesn't work well.  Thanks for the input folks.

Got mine a few months before you did when the prices were lower.  Excellent RF!  Glad I invested in one even though the wife keeps giving me a hard time for spending money on toys.
