I would like to see lots of spring permits in most GMU's, but not so many that it's no longer a quality hunt. The exceptions could be some of the GMU's in western Washington in which access is mostly controlled by Weyerhaeuser, Rayonier, or some other timber company. For those units, go ahead and make it an OTC spring bear hunt. The number of hunters are already being limited by the timber companies.

That makes sense.

With the amount of logging going on in the spring good luck with any timber farms.  Way too much logging traffic to even access the la d.

jkThomps did some research on the Monroe Unit spring bear for next year.  Here is the discussion in another thread.  If anything, there will be a move for less spring bear hunting.,210639.msg2830546.html#msg2830546
