Stohr seems like a good and fair guy, he might be better than what we had, I wonder if he will apply for the position permanently?

Sure, if you like Mike Cenci and also how Stohr did nothing to improve WDFW Enforcement.

It seemed like Stohr did more to protect Cenci and crew than he did to facilitate any change.

I hate to say it, but I think the commission will view hiring a guy whose expertise in fish was second to anything else was a mistake.  I predict our next director will be have a fisheries biology background and come from the middle ranks of a coastal state F&G Department.  This person will be ready to deal with fisheries on Day 1, and be more than happy to let the tribes drive the bus on wildlife management.

You can quote me later, for better or worse.

I didn't know how he reacted to the Cenci issue. My comment was regarding interaction I've had with him.

Just got an email that Joe Stohr has been named acting Director of the WDFW. Not sure if that's good or bad. If he's a friend of Cenci, I'd have to say bad.

The culture in WDFW is horrible.  Stohr, the HR department and the Enforcement Program reminds me of a dirty east coast police department.  There has to be a change.  Stohr was Schiratio's supervisor and did nothing about his behavior.

Funny you framed the issue that way. I heard a rumor that Cenci started "making Book" as soon as he got here.

Look closer at the fine print buried at the bottom of the PR announcement and note who Stohr appointed for Deputy Director.

I sort of had the same initial reaction, but then remembered Weilgus is from WSU and is definitely not good for hunting.  :dunno:

While I have not met Joe, yet, I do know his extended family fairly well.

To say they are simply anti-hunting and anti-2A would be an understatement as they are downright wacko.  I doubt this will be fun for the WA sportsmen.

I think the two degrees - one from Oregon and the other from Berkeley - say enough.

After they hired Unsworth did anyone real expect a change for the better with their next pick?
