Doing this in September is nuts.
Why don't you guys go in next weekend and take cross cut saws to cut out the trails???

I hunt Idaho.
Screw WA.
The amount of spandex wandering around the trails of this libertard state is both amazing and sickening.

I do wish them luck with the goat survey however.
Every liberal should own a goat.

I don't know why they don't hit up the Master Hunters as part of their volunteer hours

I will be emailing out the WDFW sign-up information next week to everyone that has expressed interest.

I got a report from someone that was up on Snowgrass last weekend and there is still a lot of snowpack, but it's coming off quickly.  We will try to scatter people around in different places, depending on their time and fitness constraints.  Cispus, Snowgrass, Goat Lake, Warm Lake, McCall, Devil's Knob, Knife Edge...you get the idea.

Sorry I can't give more detailed information right this minute, but it's logistically impossible given some of the variables we are up against.  Don't worry though, we're not going to spring the final plan on you last minute.  Stay tuned!

BTW, I've got 15 or so people that have expressed interest, but more would be better given how much country we are trying to cover.

Thanks,

Allen

Seems like a lucrative way to get hours.

I'd be down just for the fun of doing it if I weren't doing the enchantments that same weekend...  :(

I will be  bringing a pack string so if your not capable of wearing a pack let me or Allen know and we can work something out. As I get more information on where or when I will let you all know. Thanks to all the volunteers

Time flies and we are just two short weeks out from the upcoming count.

Reports from various people that have been in the area indicate that while there is still a lot of snow piled up in places, it’s coming off fast.  Some of the attendees might want to consider bring ice-axes and crampons, but other than that we should be a go!

Thus far I have approximately 22 people that have expressed interest in helping and we could use some more.  As Kent from White Pass Outfitters noted, we will have some horse packing support for at least a portion of the east side of the mountain range, perhaps more.

If you have not done so already, please go to the following site and create your WDFW volunteer profile.  http://wdfw.wa.gov/about/volunteer/

Since this is being co-sponsored by the Rocky Mountain Goat Alliance and the Seattle Puget Sound Chapter of SCI, it's important that you check both of those boxes under the “Volunteer Groups” section. 

I will be personally calling everyone that has expressed interest thus far to get a feel for where we can best use their help (ie., fitness level, experience, equipment, preferred spotting buddy, etc.) and then setting up a roster for where each team will assigned on the mountain range.

If you have not already contacted me (or for whatever reason don’t hear from me over the next couple days or so), please reach out to me at allen.ernst@comcast.net or at 206-229-2519.

Thanks!

Allen

I had to remove some posts from this thread unfortunately. Something happened and the forum crapped out and made the 2nd page inaccessible. Going to mess with it a little and see if I can get them back but had to split the whole 2nd page off of here for now.
Update to follow.
