Sorry B, your wording threw me off thinking you thought the new proposal was only 4 days but well... yeah it's way better with the 14 and 19 day earlier  :tup:

Sorry must be the Crown Royal  :chuckle:

Yes I never put in for the so called "quality" hunts around here because 4-5 day season at the end of November is not "quality" in my book. With the change having the first two weeks of November THAT makes it "quality" and am thinking about applying if that sticks!

For those of us that have hunted these areas when there was a blacktail late season that Nov 15th-20th time frame was the best. Even 460 and 448 units need a break when people aren't out chasing the deer for months on end. :twocents:

Having lived in and hunted in these units since 1980 plus hunted west side Elk my un-scientific analysis is the first two weeks of November are by far the best two weeks to chase Blacktails. I have seen nice Bucks in my yard that I have not seen any other time through the year. I have also seen nice Bucks during Elk season nose to the ground walking though a clear cut in the middle of the day looking for that hot doe.  :twocents:

I agree, Nov. 1-14 is definitely a better time than late November in 437 and 448 that I've witnessed and experienced for blacktail.

Whoa, what's up with General archery Western Elk in the late season? They're giving us between Nov. 21 - Jan. 20 to get any elk in the 407. Are there more elk spilling over from 418??

The “Washtucna” unit

By all means if we’re gonna try and decimate a mule deer herd let’s do it with youth hunters for Heaven’s sake...instead of “giving doe tags to grown a$$ men for effs sake!!”
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

I have a few questions about the small game night hunting that maybe some of you can answer.

What gmu's is linx recovery zones?


On the provision is says there would be no night hunting, in the wac code you download it says no night hunting for bobcat so does that mean we can 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.

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.

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!
