Wonder how much cash he pocketed for the closed door Tribal meeting he had with them to set the next 10yr fisheries program?

Funny, that was my first thought as well.....   :bash:

And he must have signed off on the $1,600,000 that went to the wolf/conflict consultant.

 :hello:

I'll listen more when I get to keep the same fish the tribes do, share the resource and all that BS.  Oh yeah, and I don't get in trouble for killing craps of seabirds or blowing through Orca pods in my boat.

Like I said, maybe all your whining will pay off.  Your ignorance is amazing.  Speaks volumes about this forum....... You are the definition of "fake news". Or is that situational also? Educate your self in fisheries and law.  Unsworth was not a friend of tribes, but again I don't want to include facts in your fake news whine fest.

Nothing fake news here, I've seen everything I have listed and nothing happens, wonderful stewards of the resource huh?  Why don't you step off your victim boat and join the rest of society as an equal participant, not a special one?

You need to look in the mirror to see someone on the "victim boat". I am quite happy to exercise my rights.  Might  even go hunting tomorrow.

Unsworth didn't look very good last year when he testified on the requested fee increases and from what I've heard the public who were asked to comment did not give him any glowing reviews, he just hasn't been very effective in his time as director.

You did.  I was hoping that being from Idaho, he'd be a little better than Westport Phil.  I hope it is at least someone decent to replace him.

And the Seattle Times article had to mention this...

Also in 2017, Fish and Wildlife was chided by some conservation groups as too secret about its killing of wolves.

Where the heck did that come from?

I'm unsure we thought he was the answer. We just knew that Anderson wasn't.

This times a bazillion. Our fisheries situation is quicksand and his lack of experience in that arena finally got him. His resignation was called for last week and now we get it. Time for a new Inslee puppet.

I'm NO Unsworth fan, but do you think his hands were tied, on many issues, due to this states' Democrat/enviro administration?

I had positive thoughts because he come from Idaho, more of a hunting oriented state. I've pretty much come to realize that we are probably not going to get the type of director hunters need, the governor appoints the commission and the commission appoints the director, therefore we are going to get a director that fits their desires and policies. The next director will likely not be as good as the last two!  :yike:

Unsworth didn't look very good last year when he testified on the requested fee increases and from what I've heard the public who were asked to comment did not give him any glowing reviews, he just hasn't been very effective in his time as director.
:yeah: my thoughts as well, the legislature pretty much told him they didn't believe him at all

He might be a real nice guy, I really don't know, but that doesn't matter one way or another, it seemed like either his hands were tied or he was in over his head on quite a few issues, and that is what does matter.

I think it would be impossible to work for Inslee and CNW while trying to provide reasonable hunting accommodations.

His hands were tied because that's how the law says it should be. The Director is not the overall decision maker of the department, that's the Fish and Wildlife Commission. Too many people think the Director makes all the decisions and calls all the shots. In most cases the Director simply manages the people in the department, the policies we all hate/love are made by the Commission.

As in point, the recent salmon decision. The department sent their proposed policy to the feds without running it through the commission, a big no-no.

I think what needs to change is the Commission needs to be elected by the people. Not selected by the Governor. Treat like your local school board. Require people from each region of the state.  :dunno: As long as Insleez keeps deciding who's on the commission nothing's gonna change.

Didn't see this coming, flipped on the radio last night and they were talking about Shirato, then I see BT's post this morning.

Maybe the Commission is the problem.  This place has been a mess for decades.  They need a strong competent boss who will run things, fire those that need to be fired and duct tape the commission.   But like the relationship between the Seattle City Council, the SPD and the Seattle School district,  that is an impossible task to wish for.

Currently the commission must come from various areas of the state, but the governor picks them so we get commission members he is willing to approve. The problem with voting in commission members is that wildlife management becomes even more political.
