I would think the regs will be out in the next few weeks. Usually is anyway. But I find it weird that I got a email today saying they will be holding a public meeting to talk about hunting rules for this year. Little late for that isn't it?
Shouldn't they already be printing the regs?
Multi results better come out before the regs do
If its brown knock it down

I think they have that meeting every year. Then the next day they send the regs off to the printers.

Season dates, the number of permits available, and so forth are drafted in the January-March timeframe based on population estimates and other inputs. The Commission must approve them before they can be finalized; the meeting always occurs in April.

And then I think the reg's come out a week or so after the meeting. As Bobcat mentioned in a different thread, the reg's are probably already printed LOL.

:fire.:

" 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

The Commission's approval has always been a rubber stamp.

April 18h - May 18th is correct.

http://wdfw.wa.gov/hunting/regulations/important_hunting_dates.html
Those were the dates for 2016; the 2017 dates haven't been published yet. They should be similar.

Did they happen to give you an anticipated date for the regulations?

You can see the seasons and permit numbers here if you're in a hurry to make plans:

I'd bet money that the pamphlets are already printed, or at least that they're in the process and will be printed before the commissioners meeting next weekend. Or even better I'd bet a few bricks of 22 long rifle.
