« on: August 01, 2018, 05:24:36 PM »
Almost time to start drooling again....driving those mountain roads early and late to see if the broods are out...
We're a year older, so start taking evening walks... push yourself away from the dinner table. Water not soda pop.

Check your shotgun shell supply now
Clean your smoothbore

AHA!  There is life out there in the huntfishnw galaxy!
There are 11 days remaining in August.  Got my big and small game license, got plenty of 12 and 20-ga shells, got my Ruger pistol back together.

Grouse on the spit!  Grouse on the BBQ!

Ending a long sojourn into the Twilight Zone....I return with frothing mouth, itchy trigger finger and lust for grouse on the barbecue.

Everybody ready for the opener? Friday 9/1, the beginning of Labor Day weekend...
Anybody been scouting?
Anybody been seeing?
Everybody got their license?

It is time to ruffle some feathers...

Quandary for Clinton: Healthy gun, ammo sales fund wildlife programs

Today’s Seattle Times is reporting that Hillary Rodham Clinton and rival Bernie Sanders are both opening campaign offices in Washington, and this might provide Evergreen State hunters and gun owners an opportunity to confront the far left faithful with an “inconvenient truth” that boils down to a public relations victory for firearms enthusiasts.

Hopefully the woods aren't closed.

They'll be kind of damp here and there, methinks.

But the time is upon us.

Okay Boyz-n-Girlz...
Here we go again.

It's hatching time.  Now's the time to keep an eye peeled for grouse hatches. Considering the weather we're having, I anticipate a pretty good season this fall.

Gun control drumbeat starts in Arizona as Washington enters new phase
Saturday saw the first steps toward Michael Bloomberg-style gun control in Arizona with the Brady Campaign joining “community leaders and activists” to protest a so-called “bad apple gun dealer,” while the Washington Arms Collectors (WAC) launched its $10 background check program in Monroe, which continues this coming weekend in Puyallup.

Please if you comment here, cut and paste your remarks over to Examiner, to share your thoughts with readers around the country


I-594: They passed it, now we get to see what’s in it


As provisions of Initiative 594 kick in today, the first signs of what this legislation means are beginning to show up exactly where the anti-gun proponents insisted they would not: Hunter Education and promoting firearms safety, according to a discussion unfolding right now on the Hunting-Washington forum that begins with a Tuesday memo from the Department of Fish and Wildlife.

Grassroots versus gun grabbers: Planned October events show contrast

Anti-gun Seattle Mayor Ed Murray yesterday sent e-mail invitations to an Oct. 13 gathering at a private Belltown residence that is doubling as a fund raiser and pep rally for big money supporters of Initiative 594, ironically the day after a Nevada newspaper declared in a Sunday editorial that it is time for “an honest discussion about guns in America.”

I've been writing about this at Examiner as many of you know.

KOMO to host ‘Town Hall,’ activists announce pro-rights rally
KOMO will host a “Town Hall” discussion this Friday evening on the dueling initiatives, and early this morning, activists announced on the Open Carry Washington forum that they’re planning a “No on I-594” rally in downtown Seattle on Oct. 18.
