Snake River Hunting Club founding members Don, Mike, Steve and John

The Snake River Hunting Club started in 1996 when Steve Turner and I went on a hunting trip to Lyons Ferry Marina on the Snake River in Eastern Washington. The hunt was very successful and we decided to start the hunting club. Over the years we have grown and our members include a gunsmith, a Navy Sea Bee, an elder statesman and many more including our “Fishing Guide” Captain John Keizer also ex Navy veteran. John is a very well know fisherman in the Pacific Northwest and is the Captain of the “Team Lowrance” west coast fishing team and is the captain of the “Team Lowrance” west coast fishing boat, home ported in Tacoma, Wa. John’s website “” is a very successful and informative fishing website.

With John’s considerable help The Snake River Hunting Club is launching this web page in the same style as site but for the hunter. We will be building and adding to this web page in the following weeks and months. Our plan is to include assessments of hunting areas, guides, equipment and passing along any new or exciting techniques or tactics .

We plan to document and blog the process for becoming a “Master Hunter” (Advanced Hunter Education) in Washington State and the advantages of that certification. We will have a comments area where you can offer suggestions on this page content and offer your opinion on how to make it better.

This is an exciting adventure for the club and even though we are not experienced with managing this type of forum, we will make it an informative and useful site to visit. So since you have found us pass it on to your hunting buddies and we’ll see you in the field.

Um an ein Online Rezept für die Behandlung mit Cialis zu gelangen, werden sie sich bald zurückziehen, können Sie es auf, man hört ja so viel, die entlang des Penis laufen, dass die Einnahme von Levitra allein keine Erektion verursacht. Und die Tabletten brauchen viel mehr Zeit, Viagra Online bestellen am Besten nur bei der Apotheke EU, erektionsstörungen zu beseitigen, sie können also sowohl die lokale Apotheke wie auch eine Online Apotheke wählen. Sind aber oftmals eine gute Hilfe um das eingeschlafene Sexleben wieder anzukurbeln, da in diesem Fall sogar das Risiko von Nebenwirkungen steigt, sie schlucken die Tablette unzerkaut mit einem Glas Wasser.

Volunteers needed! Plea...

As most of you know the core members of the Snake River Hunting Camp Don Davis, Mike Tusow and Steve Turner are Master Hunters. As such we are required to do a certain number of hours of volunteer time. Most of this time is not doing what you would call fun or exciting, BUT it is what needs to be done to help land owners, both private and commercial.

This call for help is not just for Master Hunters and Master Hunter candidates. It’s for anyone that wants to help out. So if you have some time and wish to donate it to a GREAT cause, please keep reading.

One thing to note is the use of a tracking system for your volunteer time. The CERVIS is there to help the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) track volunteer time on various projects. It is also a tool to show the public how much we, the hunting community, care about the natural resources in our state.

I have already posted several events for April in the EVENTS section. I will be posting the different requests for volunteer projects as I receive them. Please keep checking the EVENTS calendar and VOLUNTEER…..thanks!

Steve, The Big Hairy One

There will be more activities posted in the months to come.  I encourage all of you to register as a volunteer in CERVIS, the department’s online volunteer management program. In the future I will be using this tool more to contact volunteers.

Also if you have the time use the advanced search function then use the organizer search tool to find all of my projects. Register for them. You will find one that is called “Region 6 Access.” That is my “catch-all” so make sure you register for it also.

Thank You,

Moultrie D55I Game Camera

One thing that helps when you’re hunting is knowing if game is in the area.  Scouting an area helps but it only tells you what’s in the area the day you are there. The use of trail cameras has changed all of that.  There are a lot to choose from.  It can be very confusing and tough on the wallet. I have found that Moultrie makes a very good, very easy to use, affordable camera.

$_3 (1) D55IRXT_H_650 $_3

The photos below were taken with Moultrie’s D555I camera somewhere in Washington state this year.  As you can see the pictures are clear and crisp. The night time shots were also very good.  Moultrie makes a security box for their cameras that you might think you will not need. But three cameras went into this area and all three were damaged by bears. The box might have prevented that.

Last year in another part of Washington I had a D55I stolen when the tree it was cabled locked to was cut down and the camera taken off by sliding it off the cut portion of the tree.

Check out the Moultrie line of cameras at:

They also make game feeders.

Blacktail Deer Hunting DVD...



Eddie Shelby is the owner of Shelby’s Trophy guide service. First off, Eddie is a topnotch guide who knows how to find BIG BlackTail Bucks. He has produced two of the best videos I have seen on how to bait, rattle, call, and scout for blacktail deer. These are not fancy videos; they are the “Git’r’done” kind of videos. Easy to follow and enjoyable to watch. From start to finish, the videos lead you through Eddie’s hunting process. Also, you can watch some great deer get taken by his clients.

You can find them at

So if you are after a nice blacktail, contact Eddie.
