Washington Turkey Hunting

Merriam’s Turkey hunting is extremely good in NE Washington. Guided turkey hunters average 300%+ shooting opportunity and 130%+ success.

Stevens county has the most birds of any county in Washington and some of the highest turkey densities in the U.S. An amazing 75% of all turkeys taken in the state of Washington are taken in NEWashington where Bearpaw Outfitters have operated for 35 years.

Turkey hunters from nearly every state have turkey hunted with Bearpaw Outfitters. Bearpaw Outfitters have proven themselves as Washington’s most successful turkey guides by guiding more successful turkey hunts than any other Washington turkey guides.

Bearpaw Outfitters hunt the best mountain hotspots and they lease thousands of acres of the best private ranches for turkey hunting. Guided and unguided hunts are offered, turkey licenses are sold over the counter, and hunters of any age can buy licenses in Washington.

Hunting Methods

Turkey calling and using hunting blinds at feeding areas and strutting zones account for most birds taken. The guides spend so much time in these hunting areas; they know the areas that birds are frequenting every day. That’s the real secret to high success rates. 

Best Hunting Times

Usually April 15 to April 25 and about May 8 to May 18 are probably the best times. The whole season is usually pretty good, except the last week of May, that is usually the toughest turkey hunting.

Trophy Quality

Most mature Merriam’s Turkeys average about 16 to 19 pounds, most beards are 7 to 10 inches, and most spurs are ½” to 1”. The largest Merriam's we have taken weighed 24 pounds, had an 11 1/4 inch beard, and had 1 7/8 inch spurs. Although the Merriam’s subspecies are not as large as the Eastern subspecies, the Merriam’s fantastic color will compliment any trophy room.

Bearded hens are fairly common and Bearpaw Outfitters do allow bearded hens to be taken if desired for an unusual mount. Bearded hens taken in the past have had beards from 3 to 8 inches. 

Shot Opportunity

Shot opportunity on the guided turkey hunts usually averages over 300% and kill success usually averages about 130%. Shooting distances vary from 5 to 50 yards. Pattern your shotgun in advance to determine your maximum effective range.

Hunting Areas

Private Ranches:  These properties range in size from 30 acres to 2500 acres and offer excellent turkey hunting. These properties are perfect for hunters with the patience to sit and watch feeding and strutting areas.

Mountain Hunts:  Hunts are conducted in proven mountain locations where there are good numbers of birds. These hunts usually require more hiking and are better suited to hunters who like to cover ground. 

Turkey Seasons

Youth Season: Open April 7-8 for 2 bearded turkeys.

Spring General: Open April 15 to May 31 for 2 bearded turkeys.

Early Fall Turkey: Late Sept or early October for 2 beardless (hens).

Late Fall Turkey: Late November and early Dec for 1 either-sex turkey. 


Lodge & Cabin:  Located only 10 to 60 minutes from most hunting areas and includes meals in the dining room, pool table in the den, indoor bathrooms, bunk beds in the cabins, and a lighted game cleaning area with water faucet. Groups of up to 16 can be accommodated.

Motel “Town Hunts”:  Motels are only 10 to 60 minutes from most of the hunting areas. Guided hunters are picked up and returned to their room each day. Unguided hunters are given hunting advice and a marked map to hunt areas. Budget about $60 per day.

What’s Not Included

Taxidermy, licenses, gratuities, and any other items not listed as being included. Bring your personal gear, and a sleeping bag for the bed.


Licenses are available over the counter for hunters of any age. Youth hunters are half price (even non-residents) and first time hunters do not need Hunter Ed to purchase licenses. Other hunters need Hunter Ed if born after Jan 1, 1972. 


Both services are available locally for a fee, or you may choose to transport your trophy and carcass home. Meat processing is usually done in a day or two.
