Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

Wouldn't it be helpful if they posted some where what the harvest totals where to date.    :dunno:

I know I am hoping for a perfect world.

I have been doing some calling in 673. I have been able to get out a couple of times but nothing as of yet. This is my first year hunting them and I will keep you all posted

If I said what I really thought about WDFW with their quota's I'd have to ban myself. 


According to the website they update weekly, but it's been updated every day and now 101 is closed and I'm not driving to 113 to get started over there just to have it shut down while I'm out walking around in the snow scouting a new area.   According to their site I should have had a week to chase cats because the site was just updated yesterday, and now it's updated again today  :bash:

I do believe someone has their "Mad Panties" on.

It's pretty sad when both of your favorite choices used to have a 20 cat quota when you could run them with hounds. Now the quota is a lot less and They are closed before they ever open. Total harvest for 105 in 2016 was 5 and 10 for 101.

Is this due to the fact there are less of them? If you talk to some of the cattle ranchers they will argue that.

Guess we are going to be slinging lead at the local yote population.

They're adding the depredation kills to the general hunting kills  :bash:

Don't forget the "Other" category also. One get run over and it counts also. Without giving them ideas no tribal harvest show either.
