"Wolf Haven get together in Western Washington"


Tacoma, US
          

I'm currently looking for nikonian members interested in wildlife photography. I need 4 people to reserve a special photography tour at Wolf Haven in Tenino, Washington. If you're interested please email me...Once I get a group we can find a date to reserve. I can also get telephoto lenses to rent if needed.

dave, i would be interested but my fall is mostly full at this point so timing is everything. if that doesn't work out have you ever thought of shooting (well really photographing) elk at the oak creek feeding station a few miles from naches, wa??? the best time for that of course is in jan or feb, when the game department feed a large herd of elk. there is no fees to view or even ride in one of the feeding trucks (well non last year). i have photos from last year if interested ivan

Ivan, I would actually be interested in the photos! We have lots of Roosevelt elk in the olympic mountains, but it'll be impossible to reach them if we have the same winter like last year! The roads were closed until mid July!

HEY DAVE,
opps sorry about the cap thing. so happy to hear from you - i was beginning thinking there were no live nikonians in all the state since i have had no response to my posts til now. the oak creek feeding station is right off hwy 12 near naches like i said before. these elk are the yellowstone kind. they are a bit shorter than the roosevelt kind but just as heavy. i can't post photos here but would be most happy to send them by e-mail. the one problem is i don't know your e-mail address and don't know where to find it. sooooo, if you can e-mail me i will shoot you some photos back. hope to hear from you soon.
iva

I might be interested in that if you could do it on a Wednesday. I've been there several times and would like to go again. Might even stay at the Great Wolf Lodge and enjoy a waterpark. Richard

I could possibly bring my daughter along. She is wild about wolves, so you could count us for 2.

I would be interested if the date works out. My wife would also probably like to attend. But she would not be photographing, just grinning from ear to ear.

A week from Thursday, Nov. 16, would work for my daughter and myself. Are we still short people? Sometimes you just need to put a date on things. In the current economic situation they may even agree to take fewer for less money if they are approached in the right way.

We have about 5 people interested, so I'll contact the main office of the Wolf Haven and check some dates/availability/costs etc. One member requested Nov 23, 2008.

Drat, that was me who asked about Nov. 23. I meant Oct. 23 as I am unable to go on the weekends. Not able to go at all till after Dec. 19 as I got dragged kicking and screaming into coaching my daughters basketball team. I was planning on buying a D700 and taking pictures, not sitting on the bench dealing with fussy parents about playing time. :>(

It would be nice to go sometime in the next couple of weeks before the Washington flood gates open
Maybe catch some of the fall colors in the background... but, most of those will be gone next week.

I'm still interested but in the middle of my daughter's basketball season, so unable to go unless during Christmas break. This trip might be better done in the springtime at this point. I am also curious as to what the special photography tour would entail. I don't think they'd take you to the back pens. Being able to use tripods would be nice. Being there during feeding time is interesting too. I've done that, the wolves tend to be real active. The absolute best time to be there is when the wolves decide to have a group howl. I've been there twice for that. Once during the Persied meteor showers. There is something about being out under the stars with wolves howling all around that stirs the soul. The other time was on a Wednesday when I had pulled my then 9 year old daughter out of a soccer camp that was way tougher then what was probably appropriate for her age level. She was the youngest kid in the camp and probably 4 years younger than the average camper. We stopped by Wolf Haven for the first time and while we were there the wolves just started their howl. As we were leaving my daughter told me she wanted to go back and finish the camp. That was the bravest thing she had ever done. So back we went and she toughed it out and finished the camp. I think the wolves inspired her. Richard

Any word/movement on this? Just thought I would check since spring is closer now, even though it is not close enough.
