It's been that way for many years now.

I always tell people, don't buy a muzzleloader elk tag for the east side unless you plan on hunting the early season.

. I know.  Forgot i guess.  No big deal, i wonder why the late season is set up like that for muzzy hunting?

113 isn't open and it's a pretty tough area in my experience anyway.  Not that that's a bad thing but it's not an elk area that you can just go randomly hunt and have much success.   :twocents:

That's because the WDFW has always hated us Mussy hunters.
If you love something you will set it free, if it don't come home, hunt it down and kill it.

 :rolleyes:

If you don't like the muzzleloader seasons, hunt rifle or archery. It's your choice.

  Looking at the regulations and there isn't jack worth going after on the east side for late muzzy!  WTF?

You just read this years regs for the first time today?? :dunno:
Have you called your district biologist to voice your concerns?
Have you attended a public meeting on season setting?
You are getting exactly what you deserve from WDFW
