Not sure I'm reading it correctly, but appears the turkey hunts in the NE will go to a basic fall hunt that runs from Sept 1 thru Dec 31 and you can take 2 beardless plus 2 either sex.  Not sure I'm for that, seems a little too liberal to me. Also going back to any whitetail for the muzzy hunt in my area-I don't think the whitetails need any more does taken in the 121 unit, archery or muzzy.

Whats up with the Nooksack? it says TBD does that mean they are going to to cut them? The region four quality Deer draw is better with the extended dates a four day season is just too short for a "quality" hunt in my book and why I have not put in for the hunt even though it is in my back yard.  :twocents:
Looks like Sauk quality buck is 14 days long and Stilly is 19 days long with 2 more tags added.
$5 is a lot of money if you ain't got it

All it's saying is it has to have a seal which was attached prior to the deadline. In other words, it cannot be a seal that is attached after the deadline.

I was hoping for a major cut in Methow late tags but they actually increased them. :o

 Then to top it off, I see a state wide reduction in the cougar season........hmmm?

 Oh yeah, after these brilliant moves, Unsworth decides it's time to move on.......POS! :twocents:
Guess he felt he needed to leave us a parting gift.  :bash:

The Methow late permits... the only increase I see is Alta, from 10 to 15. Not really a significant increase, is it? Or am I missing something?

They moved up the late season on Cougar to Dec 15 instead of Jan 1.

Their stupid quotas were being exceeded (ya duh, too many cats morons) so by moving up the late season to dec 15 they have more control as late season can be ended at any time. 

Furthermore they moved up the sealing requirements to 72 hours instead of 5 days, just so they can close the season more timely. 


 :bash: 



I hope everyone is chiming in on these rule changes, I recommend opposing the cougar ones, both sealing requirements and moving the late season up by 15 days.

Any increase in those permits is too much. It should be slashed. :twocents:

I already commented opposed to the season date change, but I donít see the big deal going from 5 days to 3 for the sealing requirements. Are guys really just letting a cougar sit for 5 days before they do anything with it?

During late season with one cougar left to go before the quota is met.... yes, I'd wait put it off long as I could so I didn't screw a cougar hunter out of their hunt, as what happened to me this year.  I took time off to hunt solid 4 days and they ended the season on me 1 day into my 4 day hunt. 

Moving it up a couple days puts a little more bind on everyone involved with the sealing requirements too, 3 days goes quick, especially if you're breaking down a camp and driving home.

I think 72 hours is unreasonable. If they didn't have their ridiculous quotas they wouldn't need to get people in to seal so quickly.

Many cats are taken during deer and elk season just by luck.  Guys don't want to stop hunting to run in and get a cougar sealed.  72 hours seems too short.  Idaho you have 10 days.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

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

Every father should remember that one day his children will follow his example instead of his advice.

They aren't concerned with biological samples with this rule change (look at the new the trapping sealing requirements) there's no rush on biological samples.....

They only want to burden us with a 72 hr rule so they can close the season in a more timely manner.

 Have you read any of the recent (last couple years) "Methow" threads?

 Any increase is significant, when most agree they should be reduced. :twocents:

I agree.  I just sent in my comments to add also that the general deer season in the Methow should go back to 9 days.
What are they smoking thinking of adding more Alta permits  :bdid:
