King 5 upcoming bear hunting story
« on: January 24, 2017, 09:55:24 AM »
Saw this on Facebook. The poster there is not a member here and asked i share it here:

Quote
"Hey guys. The lady who wrote that cougar article for king5 is also working on an article about bear hunting and the use of dogs. She is offering any of us the ability to do an on air interview with privacy, our names won't be released so we don't get death threats from antis. If anyone on here has good solid evidence for our side let me know.

I'm pushing for the comparison between Washington and Idaho and how they can use dogs and bait for bear and cougar hunting and we can't, now we are having all sorts of issues that other states don't. Please hit me with info guys! This is MAINSTREAM! Our voice can be heard!"

"If anyone want to reach out, her email is amorrow@king5.com and she said anyone willing to interview is welcome. It doesn't have to be me"
[/b]

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Sounds like a great opportunity to get our voice heard but i hope its not as one sided as the cougar story.

Bearpaw would be a good interview. Doublelung, also. Isn't Wacoyotehunter a biologist?

I know it kind of sounds like a derail, but I've kind of thought that winning over the general Seattle crowd might be easier if you could show the end result.  I hear so often "what do you do with bear?", "isn't it real greasy?", "they just take the skins, right?" or "hunters don't eat bear or cougar".
Need to find one of those popular foodie personalities (Bourdain, Zimmer, etc.) that urbanites seem to really follow.  Have one of them do some really good and exotic bear and/or cougar dishes.

That's a good idea.  :tup:

Would have to have a stipulation that nothing goes to press with out approval of the interviewed person first, make sure she doesn't mis quote them.  :twocents:

Highly doubtful you'll ever get that from them.  The only way you can prevent that from happening is only do a live broadcast.  Another option would be to have someone on our side filming the entire interview so that if they do a hatchet job you can post the full video to refute them.  But live interviews are by far your best way to avoid problems.

 :yeah: sounds like a bad idea to me, especially now every Tom can send her an email with their feelings on the matter.

Another great option might be @ucwarden , he used to work for the department and could speak to the fact that the initiative to ban baiting and the use of dogs really hampered the departments ability to manage the wildlife.

One step further would be for Unsworth to make a statement.  He has experience in Idaho and Washington, so he could speak to both models of management.  Not sure that he would do it or if he would give the statement that would be in the best interest of hunters/game management or lean towards a more liberal view.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

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

We still use dogs and bait in Idaho, they are effective management tools. Who do you get in touch with for an interview?
