No matter what, I cant even remotely see the governor appointing "ANYONE", who isnt 100% in step with his agenda that he can 100% trust to pursue said agenda while causing absolutely no waves or cast any doubt towards where things are going and how they are getting there.  The governor and his recent appointments are certainly reprehensible, and the agenda is crystal clear.

I've had numerous personal conversations with Brian Blake regarding wildlife management during his time in the legislature. I know that he has strongly supported hunters as the previous chairman of the House Natural Resources committee. I cannot think of another person in this state who has nearly the political experience, the lifelong dedication to hunting, and has such a good likelihood of being selected to serve on the commission. IMO - Hunters will be missing a great opportunity if they do not support a Brian Blake commission appointment!  :twocents:

Thankyou for throwing your hat in for the position!

Having worked with Brian on different issues over the years (mostly firearms, hunting and access related), I agree with Dale's assessment.

Good grief people.  Some of the short-sighted absurdities in this thread remind me of why "our" side loses elections and political influence.  If a candidate or political appointee (and that's EXACTLY what this position is!) isn't absolutely perfect in every way, shape, and form, then a significant enough percentage of the vote simply chooses to pout and take their ball and go home.  Consequence...everyone loses.

Yep...He's a Democrat. He's voted and supported Democrat Party-line nonsense (at least from my Independent Conservative/Republican perspective), but the hunting community will not find a better candidate from the West side of the state that stands an ice cube's chance in hell of Inslee appointing to the Commission.

So, let's stop the short-sighted and foolish bickering and focus on pulling hard in the same direction. The future of hunting in our state depends on it!  Please support Brian Blake for Commissioner.

There are such things as "Conservative Democrats".  Which it appears Mr. Blake fits the category to a T.  Just because someone is a Democrat doesn't mean they are full on Liberal. 

He has my full support.  :)

One does not hunt in order to kill; on the contrary, one kills in order to have hunted. If one were to present the sportsman with the death of the animal as a gift he would refuse it. What he is after is having to win it, to conquer the surly brute through his own effort and skill with all the extras that this carries with it: the immersion in the countryside, the healthfulness of the exercise, the distraction from his job. ~ Jose Ortega y Gasset

Brian Blake is solid.  I shouldn't need to say anymore than that.

From what I have read in my research on Mr. Blake he seems to be in line with a lot of my thinking on hunting.  Where we may differ maybe I don't have all the same information he has or maybe he doesn't have the same experiences as me that would possible have him see it differently.  He does seem to be someone that doesn't just follow the party line.  He seems to listen to the facts presented and make the best decision based on that.

What I hope people realize is that nobody is going to see everything the exact same way that they would.  Heck I am pissed off at some of the decisions I made in my life that seemed like a  good idea at the time.  Marrying my bartender in the military tops that list of great decisions that I regret now.  :chuckle:

Now back in the military I was getting free drinks and I could move out of the barracks if I got married.  Based on that information I got married. Once I had the rest of the information, wife was a crazy whacko that I couldn't stand if I wasn't drunk, I got divorced.

Again hopefully people realize that nobody appointed to the commission is going to see things exactly as they would but as long as they have many of the common interests in mind they are probably a way better option than some of the ones that just voted to eliminate the spring bear season.  I think most here would have no problem finding common ground to discuss and agree with Mr. Blake and many hunting and fishing issues.   I also think most on here would have a very difficult time finding common ground with Mr. Koontz.

This forum has always maintained a degree of anonymity for its users, the rules prohibit personally identifying members, revealing their employment status, etc. 

We removed those posts at the request of a certian HW'r that does not wish to be personally identified.

As we would for anyone else that has been personally identified, either by their own actions or others, and no longer wishes to be.
