If it's anything like other areas I've seen it's in pellet form in the giant white bags. Mind you, they usually work 7 days a week doing this so you'll have all the truck traffic, helicopters, and extra man power out there too.

Just wait on the edges for the animals to come running out then blam blam blam

Be safe everyone.
Some animals WERE harmed in the making of this Hunter. They were also dragged through the dirt, butchered and tasted delicious fried with butter and bacon.

Almost sounds like the change wasn't due to the weather but the complaints received from hunters.   :dunno:

For the record I don't hunt this area any longer, stopped after the pay to play went into effect. So I really don't have a dog in this fight BUT, I think it would be in wdfw/weyco's best interest to consider permit holders almost stake holders and should consult them during hunting season when they plan doing stuff like this. If people are going to pay good money to access weyco land and good money to wdfw they should allow the best conditions possible.

just my  :twocents:

Definitely seems weird to cite the weather, but then apologize for making people upset.

It sounds like there were several complains about the initial notice, so it just seems appropriate that after setting one date, then a couple days later changing it, to appologize...
It is better to be consistently incorrect than inconsistently correct...

Then why say they are changing it due to weather? Changing the date isnít what upset people.

Weyco... What a bunch of TOOLS.....Go to pay to play, rake the dough then tell you that you can't enter the area because of weed control. It's only going to get worse for such a pathetic opportunity anymore to even hunt the once large west side elk herds.
Out of state looks like an every year reality instead of every other year anymore.

Then why say they are changing it due to weather? Changing the date isnít what upset people.

Let me try and break it down, maybe I didn't word it right.

They announced a date for a closure that effected permit holders. 

Now, they certainly received complaints about it having an impact on those permit holders planning to hunt elk in that area.

Now they are, by their words a few days later, rescheduling due to weather issues.  I don't know if that is why or not, maybe too much snow expected to fertilize properly, I don't know.  :dunno:

Since the initial notice caused people to have to change or cancel plans, and now there is a different time frame, which will/could again effect new plans that may have been made which may now be affected by the new time frame, or by those who were not effected by the initial dates, but are now.

It just seems that they are just trying to say, "Hey, sorry, we know this sucks!"

And trying appease a group of people that are going to be inconvienced in one way or more, who have invested money and lost opportunity and are going to be upset.

I suppose they didn't have to send the second email out and just kept the closure from the original date and just extended it...

It sucks that to get to hunt there it costs so much, but it is clear when buying the permit that there may (read will) closures at times and that is just part of the package.

The tree farm and day to day operations will always take precedence.

Trying keep everyone notified as quickly as possible of changes like this just seems to be a considerate thing to do...

At least they make an attempt to notify where in the past before the permit situation they just went and did it. Didn't even post signs all you would see is the giant bags of fertilizer.

Some animals WERE harmed in the making of this Hunter. They were also dragged through the dirt, butchered and tasted delicious fried with butter and bacon.
