I'd honestly like to see things more divided. Something along the lines of Idaho where you get OTC tags for zones would be nice. It'd be easier to see the numbers and figure out how to get away from people easier.

I am all for keeping it divided provided that the east side is managed by the east side.  We would be killing wolves, baiting bears, and chasing cats with dogs if it wasn't for Seattle.   :twocents:

 :yeah:  and I live on the westside!  lol.

I would support choosing sides for deer like we do for elk..so the East side mule deer would not get hammered as hard.

:yeah: except maybe make species specific tags. Mule deer or whitetail or blacktail.

I would love draw only. Then make all otc tags unlimited quota.then you could hunt every year but you wouldn't build points.

I would not support that idea. I would support choosing sides for deer like we do for elk..so the East side mule deer would not get hammered as hard.
I'm not so sure the result would be that favorable though.

For instance, I apply for a mule deer late tag, and when I don't draw (the last 15 years), I have stayed over here and hunted blacktail. If we had to choose sides for deer, I would go east side, apply for my mule deer tag, and if I didn't draw I would come over and hunt mule deer. I feel there may be a lot of others like me as well..  :dunno:

There's a reason why it was divided.

I personally wouldn't have a problem doing away with the spike seasons and giving out more branched bull tags.

Here in OR I don't know all that many people from the east that don't draw a tag and then run to the west side to hunt an OTC. Plenty of opportunity to do so with both deer and elk. I find more people prefer to hunt east than west. Just food for thought.

The E vs W does split it up some. I never minded it when living up there. You want to really see screwed up try applying for rifle tags and not drawing, and then buying an OTC archery tag.

How about you live on the west side,you have to hunt and fish there too. Same for the east side. If you want to hunt the other side you pay nonresident fees.  Lots of people going to ID for sure. :yeah:

Eastside towns' economies will take a huge hit with no hunting season moneys from out of town hunters.

Yes.  One of those, but I get what you are saying.  Just saying that to me personally lower hunting pressure would be worth it.  Not really saying we should just a personal comment.
