I went pheasant hunting with a 67 year old gentleman last week. Seniors are allowed to hunt early. I merely tagged along and with his huge black Lab 110 lbs and no fat work the land. beautiful. No pheasants but met a new hunting friends with some great dogs.
Didn't find any small game in south Snohomish County north of Duvall, WA. Predation.
But the elk herds are huge and in some communities around Black Diamond and Greenwater, the people are hand feeding the tamer cows and young bulls.
Thinking about getting an elk tag now.
