Put a turkey on your table


There’s more than one way to put a turkey on your table for Thanksgiving. Rather than head to the grocery store, thousands of hunters plan to get their birds during the hunting season for wild turkey already underway in eastern Washington.

Then again, who says turkey has to be the center of attention on Thanksgiving Day? November is prime time to head outside for game, fish, or shellfish.

• Deer and elk: Hunters can go afield for deer and elk this month. Get the most of your deer season, multi-season deer tags are still available.

• Razor clams: Diggers have many potential opportunities to hit the beaches this month. Are you team clam gun or team clam shovel? Check out all the clam dig information at medium.com/@wdfw/the-great-razor-clam-face-off-d44c9e1a1fd5.

•  Waterfowl: Hunting seasons for ducks and geese should be getting into full swing in parts of the state, where migratory waterfowl are expected to make another strong showing this year.

• Trout: With tens of thousands of trout recently stocked in lakes, anglers should have plenty of places to enjoy great fishing this fall.

• Crab: A few areas are still open for late-season crab fishing. For details, check the crab seasons and areas webpage.
