We hunt Merriam's Turkey in Stevens County which has the most turkeys of any county in Washington and one of the highest turkey densities in the U.S. An amazing 74% of all turkeys taken in the state of Washington are taken here in NE Washington.

Hunters from nearly every state and numerous countries have hunted turkey with us. Our guides are Washington’s most successful turkey guides, with more successful turkey hunts to their credit than any other Washington turkey guides — as many as 106 birds in one season.

We hunt the best mountain hot spots and lease thousands of acres of the best private ranches. Turkey licenses are sold over the counter, and youth of any age can hunt if they have passed hunter education.

Hunt Description
Unguided Hunts: Include lodging, meals, a lighted game cleaning area with water and freezer, a map and directions to good mountain areas, you will be sent to the best spots!

Hunt Methods
There's nothing better than calling in a big gobbler. Another reason for our high success rate is that we pattern turkey movements. We get a lot of birds by using blinds at feeding areas and strutting zones. By knowing these areas well our hunters consistently kill birds all season long.

Hunting Areas
Private Ranches: We lease numerous properties. The guides know these properties and the turkey movements extremely well. The most successful hunting method is using blinds at feeding and strutting areas.
Mountain Hunts: Are done in mountain hotspots where there are good numbers of birds. The most successful hunting method is calling, hunters cover ground to locate toms that will call. These hunts require more hiking and are best suited to hunters wanting to cover ground and call.

Trophy Quality
Merriam’s have fantastic color that compliments any trophy room. Mature toms usually weigh 15 to 20 pounds with 6" to 10" beards, and ½ to 1-inch spurs. The largest we've taken weighed 24 pounds, had 11 1/4" beard and 1 7/8" spurs. Bearded hens are sometimes seen and may be taken for a mount, beards on hens have measured from 3 to 8 inches.

Shot Opportunity
Guided hunt shot opportunity is very high, success for two birds is usually 150% to 200%, unguided hunters are about half as successful. Shot distances vary from 5 to 40+ yards. Pattern your shotgun on Turkey Targets in advance to determine your maximum effective range.

Seasons & Best Time
Spring is good until about May 20. The entire fall season is excellent.
Youth Season: Open April 1-7 for two bearded turkeys.
Spring General: Open April 15 to May 31 for two bearded turkeys.
Fall Season: Sept 1 to Dec 31 for two either-Sex & two beardless.
