Thanks KF so I guess the real question is 121 linx  recovery zone.

Did you read the wac code changes ,can I still night hunt coyotes.
Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

This sums up the GMU's that will be off limits for night hunting bobcat, yes you can hunt yotes.  Evidently one dude shot a lynx at night so this is the big red panic button rule.

Does that mean that between the pink lines and the green lines it's open?   :dunno:

NO!

If any color touches a GMU, then the whole GMU is off limits!

The representation of that map shows this person suffers from      " Instant Spontaneous Explosive Disorder"

I am sure if you would like to admit it.  We can get you help for this. I would check with your HR department.   :chuckle:

When I look at KF's work of art I do feel like there is some tension in the strokes of his crayons.

Going to be interesting to see if any changes to these proposals will be made after the comments are gathered. Such a short comment period

Looks like I will be spending my money for out of state tags from now on, pretty much done with this state.....
:yeah: I bet a lot of guys will be doing that.  Taking the cow elk away from the early archery hunters in the bumping and nile is complete BS.  And I'm pretty sure that they aren't giving out 74 cow moose tags in mt Spokane, that has to be a typo.
What's up with Mt. Spokane 2nd deer?? ALL ANTERLESS! Are there does running all over the place??
Moderen- 350 tags
MZ - 125
Archery- 100
You would think that there is a doe on every corner.

My interpretation is...

They are proposing to remove Deer Areas 1050,1060,1070 (Spokane North, Spokane South, Spokane West) and combine then all under Mt. Spokane

So if I am reading the proposals correctly...

2nd Deer Permits issued for GMU 124 in 2017 (Modern) = 575
Mt. Spokane: 50
1050: 350
1060: 75
1060: 100

2nd Deer Permits issued for GMU 124 in 2018 (Modern) = 350
Mt. Spokane: 350

I have a feeling most of these are wrote in stone,this comment time is just to make us hunters feel better.

There have been changes to the proposed rules in years past, maybe we'll get one or two concessions if we whine hard enough but for the most part I think you're correct.  It's a required formality.

Finally get some (250) Doe tags in 121!!!!  :tup:
Now hopefully they get used...

Sorry, 225, not 250. But still a big step up.

only one of the deer areas was in 124. Whatever number Spokane north was. Spokane south was part of gmu 127 and Spokane West was part of 130.
Tag numbers are close to what the deer areas plus gmu were last year.

You must be seeing something I'm not.  IN the over 20 years I've been in the Hunters area I've seen a steady decline in the whitetail numbers.  We used to winter 200-250 around my house and now see maybe 40-50.  Mule deer numbers continue to climb, but still not huge numbers.  Not sure how we go from recently having a 4point antler restriction to bring the numbers back and now think we need to give out 225 doe tags.

Have you called your district biologist to voice your concerns?
Have you attended a public meeting on season setting?
You are getting exactly what you deserve from WDFW

For the boundary comment section. Can the guys that hunt these areas post up what kind of support they need, yay or nay for the proposals. I don't know much of the areas and have no opinion but would like to support the hunters that will be affected.

My comment would be weather you would like some the larger areas split or made smaller. Probably not a lot of people comment on the GMU boundries.

I donít think they are actually changing any GMU boundaries. Itís just a change in the wording for 485 and 522. Thatís about it so really not much reason to comment.
