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 101 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 Descriptions
Guided Hunts: Include lodging, meals, guiding on private ranches and mountain hot spots, and processing and cold storage of your game taken.
Semi-Guided Hunts: Include lodging, meals, a lighted game cleaning area with water and freezer, and guides will show you good areas to hunt.

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.

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 weigh 15 to 20 pounds with 7" to 10" beards, and ½ to 1½-inch spurs. The largest we've taken weighed 24 pounds, had 11 1/4" beard and 1 7/8" spurs. Bearded hens are fairly common and may be taken for a mount, beards on hens have measured from 3 to 8 inches.

Shot Opportunity
Guided hunt shot opportunity is over 300%, 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.
