Found this:
It is better to be consistently incorrect than inconsistently correct...

Sarcasm: The ability to insult stupid people without them realizing it. 

My level of sarcasm depends on your level of stupidity...

Sarcasm makes smart people laugh and stupid people mad.

I believe Ross is talking about the entire unit not just the Hancock property

I can't believe they could legally close an entire GMU, especially one with private land. I can believe they would close public areas like national forests, and that forest companies could close their lands. :dunno:

Well they basically closed the woods down from Chinook Pass to Snoqualmie Pass, so I can see the white getting shut, down that fire is huge.

A significant portion of the GMU is private.

There's nothing on WDFW's website about the GMU being closed. :dunno:

Wow. That's the first time I can recall an entire GMU being closed.

Could it be a matter of wording? Maybe the closure encompasses the GMU? They were emailing peaches permit holders yesterday. A phone call would be not their normal means of communication based on the emails yesterday.

The Hancock portion is closed for sure.

My guess is that it is linguistics, the vast majority, if not all, public access is closed so they are giving all the points back rather than calling everyone and seeing where they were planning on hunting or letting guys head over there without checking and getting pissed.
