Interesting. I hope they give out a good number of permits. I wonder if it will be early and late season both. A few years back it was true spike only in the early season and true spike or cow in the late.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Hopefully the units down here get the same treatment. Make antler less permit only until the herd rebounds again.
No longer a WA resident and not sad about it.

I had a rifle cow tag in the Colockum this year and my son 3 years ago.  I see what you are saying "As a rifle hunter i couldnt be happier"  But that makes me wonder if they will give out any rifle cow tags then?  And if so how many?  Last year it was over 500 and this year it was only 100.

They should also shut down deer hunting completely in the 346, bucks also!  I know a certain tribe won't abide but that deer herd sucks.

My vote is more units go to spike only for general archery and get rid of true spike. Then based on survey counts, allocate permit tags for cows in the different units.

Two fires in other historically heavily hunted archery units didn't help with concentration.

This is great news! What a zoo itís turned into the last few years. Unbelievable what people will do to kill/hunt elk. Go to permit only on cows early and give them a break. True spike sucks plain and simple. I wished they would go to spike again though.
