First of all, please excuse my ignorance, I have never shot an animal in my life and I am new the the NW, but I'd love to experiment with hunting and see if it is a hobby I can get in to. I am not new to guns, I've done plenty of target shooting in my day, and I am not new to the outdoors, I am an experienced backcountry hiker/backpacker/survivalist. I live in Vancouver, WA, and I have a 20 gauge shotgun that I have never hunted with and I would just love to stick it in my backpack on a Saturday morning, or perhaps a Friday/Saturday overnigter, drive somewhere within 30-45 minutes or so from here, find a trail to hike, walk 1-5 miles and see if I can find a squirell or a bird or something to shoot and eat. I don't have a hunting license, so I was wondering if there is anywhere around here that I could legally do that, and which types of small game I could legally shoot without a license. Am I just dreaming or is this possible? Thanks!
