Predator pit
« on: November 21, 2017, 10:58:34 PM »
From reading other posts about reworking wdfw to listen to the views of hunters; mule deer declines; and that this state is turning into a predator pit, I thought I'd start a thread on what areas need the most help with predator control.

I realize everyone will have an opinion on which area needs it more but if we can organize and make more trips to certain areas to make an immediate impact for the survival of next years fawns and calves. And at the same time, work on making more voices heard in Olympia, we might be able to help our herds.

It's an uphill battle, untouchables like wolves, cougar quotas and hibernating bears can slow things down but if we can get together and make sure the quotas are filled every year and go bear hunting in units that have struggling ungulate numbers we might be able to start to make a difference.

I'm not the most educated on predator hunting and which areas need the most help but from what I've been reading lately:
Okanogan
Klickitat
???
Post the area you think needs the most help

My interpretation of the rules are open to interpretation.
Once I thought I was wrong but I was mistaken.

We went deer hunting this year in tonasket/okanagon, holy cow, dog heaven  there. Heading out to our spot, we pushed up 8 the first morning, than the 2nd morning saw another 15 total through the day. Alot of bones all over ther place. A little disappointed because we had heard how good it was there. Another spot thday declined was the recent creek area. But I heard thday wad from wolf and cougar populations sky rocketing

Get idea. The more yotes and bears that take a dirt nap the better.

Hunting in the 'Nooch Valley this year, so much cat sign. It was kind of ridiculous

NE Corner.  Wolves, Grizz & Black bears, Cats, Yotes, Bobcats, and no spring bear hunting at all in some GMU's.  WDFW is worse than inept, they're obviously intentionally sabotaging our future.   :bash:
