Spring Bear 2018
« on: November 19, 2017, 11:45:24 AM »
I haven't saw the regs for 2018 spring bear yet.  I believe it says they come out in November.  Anyone know anything?

I asked about spring bear tags last week, this is what she said at Wdfw.

Hi Jerry,
As of right now the applications are due to go on sale Jan 2, 2018 Feb 28, 2018.
We are waiting for the species manager to get the information out to customers via email and most likely a media News Release.
They will be posting the hunt choices to the dfw.wa.gov web page soon, or at least by the time submittals begin in Jan.
If there are changes in the next couple of weeks, I will let you know.
 
Take care

I believe they adopted exactly what was proposed. If you look up the WAC (232-28-286), it was updated a while back, so you can see what the changes are.

Nature. It's cheaper than therapy.

#1 Why is spring bear a special permit. Is it easy bear hunting? Shooting fish in a barrel?
#2 is that the only areas that have spring bear available? No 335,510,667,328,336,346 or 505?
#3 is spring bear just to deal with a problem Bear population in a specific area?

I understand that legal areas for the westside hunts are generally limited to whatever the WDFW works out with the timber companies--generally speaking, what general part of the unit has the Skagit hunt been in?  Wasn't able to find any of the maps online.  I am just trying to gauge roughly how far of a drive it would be for me.
