I'm surprised the WA didn't go higher. Was a lot higher than normal, but there is a top 3 in the country rocky alive and roaming the hills.

Since when has the WA auction tag holder been able to hunt rockys down south? Better invest heavily in the raffle if you want to hunt down that way.

are they allowed when theres a permit tag issued in a year? I was under the impression the new state record was the Governor's tag last year.

No, that was the rocky raffle auction ran by WAWSF.  The gov tag holder basically gets the Swakane, while the WDFW raffle tag winner gets the Chelan Butte.

Will there be draw tags in the Blues again this year? I have not looked at the proposals for this year. Any pics around if the rams that did get taken down there last year?

I donít think the rocky Gov tag can hunt for Caliís. Am I wrong?
