Go wild for Thanksgiving
Thinking about what to put on the Thanksgiving Day table? Thousands of hunters plan to get their birds during the hunting season for wild turkey that gets underway Nov. 20 in eastern Washington. The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) notes that November is also prime time to hunt ducks, geese, elk, deer, pheasant, and a variety of other game around the state.
“Waterfowl hunting usually picks up around the middle of the month, when the wet and windy weather starts pushing more migrating birds into the area from the north,” said Mick Cope, WDFW game manager.
