It would not take that big of a trap.

When did WDFW come out against any additional harvest methods?  I think if HSUS and PAWS were supportive we could get some hound pursuit back, the state (WDFW) is not the problem in that regard.

 I-655 is not under the control of HSUS and PAWS. It was voted on and passed by "the people" of Washington (King, Snohomish Counties).

 To get hound hunting back will require A LOT more than their support. :twocents:

Never going to happen!

In 1996, nine counties out of the 39 in the state voted for keeping hounds & baiting, that means, in addition to the ones mentioned above, there were 28 other counties, statewide that voted to take hounds and baiting away.

Can click on the circled link in the picture to see the breakdown by county for those interested

 My point exactly. ;)
The things that come to those who wait, may be the things left by those who got there first!

I heard that there's a chance that we'll be cage trapping lions in the near future. I personally haven't been able to get off of lion sign this fall/winter regardless of where I've been. Also was involved in calling and killing a really big Tom this winter, there is to many around :twocents:

reading that list, it looks like every single county voted to ban it. Am I reading it wrong?

If toms have such a massive range according to the state why can’t we at least transfer quota from one gmu to the other. States gonna do it with halibut this year why not cougars.

Yes, you are reading it wrong. Nine counties carried a "NO" vote, which meant they wanted to keep hounds and baiting.

They were:

Columbia
Douglas
Ferry
Garfield
Lewis
Lincoln
Okanogan
Pend Oreille
Stevens

It is a little confusing to read, each counties majority vote are listed first.  Red check marks show two of the counties that "NO" was the majority vote for example.

I see now. I didn’t read closely enough to see that the winning vote was listed on top instead of the yes vote every time.
