    It's been years since I've fired a shot triggered by adrenaline and drumming wings - kids, career, etc. have pre-empted forays to the field. I'm posting this query to ask if there is an outfit in Western Washington or just east of the Cascades that offers a safe venue to exercise a green english setter and 7 year old boy. Specifically, I'd like to have some birds planted so the dog has a chance to warm-up to the idea (the dog hasn't hunted in 5 years - just stalks/sets pigeons on neighborhood walks), and the kids can see how the mechanics of bird hunting works - all in a fairly predictable scenario.<!--EndFragment-->

    Can anyone suggest a bird ranch or other venue in Western WA or just east of the Cascades? Thanks!

    Locked-up, great to have you on board. We have many members from your area and I hope that some of them will be able to point you in the right direction. In the mean time, please feel free to post on any of the topics you are interested in. Hopefully, this return to hunting will not be put on the back burner.

     Thanks for the warm welcome 'Beans. I grew up in the mid-Willamette Valley in the '70's and spent a lot of great years hunting rye grass fields and river systems. It's a shame to have a hunting dog with good instincts relegated to snarfling the kid's breakfast crumbs. Living in Seattle is a tough place to be if you're a sportsman. I'd like to "un-urbanize" my sprouts by exposing them to the field/nature and teaching them gun safety so they'll be ready to actually hunt in a few more years.

    I can recommend Cooke Canyon Hunt Club in Ellensburg, WA.  They have a website.  Great people, they love dogs and will work with you on training yours.  No license needed.

    Thanks for the tip, Michael. I'll give them a ring!
