I have a hard time trusting WDFW studies/surveys.  They do this same garbage to their employees.  They ask pointed questions that can be manipulated, then come up with biased results.  This reminds me of the countless surveys I took when I was employed by them.  They will not survey themselves back into popularity.

Sifting through it. Only 4% of folks hunt and 10% of the population opposes hunting altogether.  :(

"...PARTICIPATION IN OUTDOOR RECREATION
Two thirds of Washington residents (66%) are satisfied with the variety of options to enjoy fish
and wildlife resources throughout the state; 37% are very satisfied. This compares to only 9%
who are dissatisfied.
A majority of residents participated in hiking (65% did so) and wildlife viewing (56%) in
Washington in the past 2 years, and 4% of residents hunted in Washington in the past 12
months...."


and

"...ATTITUDES TOWARD HUNTING

Three fourths of residents (75%) approve of legal, regulated hunting in general; 44% strongly
approve. In contrast, 10% disapprove..."

I wasn't aware of this survey until I looked at the WDFW home page. 10% of the population disapproves of hunting.  A majority of those must be on the WDFW commission!!

Probably THE MOST IMPORTANT STATEMENT in this study...

ATTITUDES TOWARD HUNTING
Three fourths of residents (75%) approve of legal, regulated hunting in general; 44% strongly
approve. In contrast, 10% disapprove.
In archery we have something like the way of the superior man. When the archer misses the center of the target, he turns round and seeks for the cause of his failure in himself.

WDFW should use those percentages for the make up of the commission.  Equal representation based on their survey.   :tup:  And yes, I'm serious.

One other thing of note is the fact that the percentage for folks that answered "Dont know" went up in most areas.

Good question.  I usually do all the surveys and didn’t see this one.

That’s because it was sent to the people they planned on it going to. How else are you going to control the results. Our commission has the whole WDFW so screwed with our hands tied behind their back I wouldn’t even waste my time taking a survey. Until we fix that commission our voices are not going to be heard at all. Boat Insley and all Democrats out. Otherwise you are just as big of a cause of lost opportunity  as the game commission themselves

Ya its right up there with "contact your representatives and tell them to vote no" yada yada etc. etc. about gun issues/legislation, I'm tired of sending messages to murray and cantwell  as they will NEVER vote outside party lines, no way, never.

11% of survey respondents were hunters and 36% fished in the last 2 years If anything I would say we got a better shake than our demographics indicate, not sure about fishing.

These percentages are what I was referring to.  10% of the commission can be the nay sayer/sayers, the rest supporters.

I'd say that 90% of people who had disapprove comments on spring bear also disapprove of all hunting.
Maybe more :dunno:
