Worst part is their harvest guidelines come from a study done at wsu which recommended 12% of the population harvested to keep below carry capacity. If you go off wdfw's estimated population then most areas quotas are 4% of estimated pop. :bash:

Crazy part is that when you could run hounds the quota for 105 was 20 total with no more 7 females . I think that's what I remember. Now the quota is 2 of any combination. Those numbers  (20) were reached every year.

So how can there be less now nobody is pestering them.

They are managing predators like they always do.

Would that be the "Hey there went the horse"  Think we should close the gate?

Seems to be....we don't see them all the time so we obviously need more.

Or then there is the hawk mentality.......
Well I don't even know what drives that?

I always thought the NE/SE closures were kinda questionable.... Now I own property in NE and I hunt deer every year in SE... now I KNOW the early closures there are completely lame brained!!! Plain and simple. No reason whatsoever to close off these regions for Lions. There are WAY more there than anywhere else in the state. It's just an ongoing attempt to manage hunters out of the loop. Status quo for WDFW.

Cougar season is open year 'round here in Arizona. I've seen 2 so far in 4 months, one being yesterday 1/2 mile from my house, crossing the road right next to the freeway.
I could care less about what anybody says..............
