Eastside Mule Deer Survival Study Update
« on: April 17, 2018, 09:24:35 AM »
Here is a good article on mule deer and why we are fortunate to have information from the tribal bio's, whom tell the truth about what is happening with ungulate predation in Washington. The only reason we have elk in the Tacoma Watershed unit again is because of their studies about predation and control.

super cool.
I wish I could read the map legend though.

Kill Them Cats when you have the chance. No hound hunting means less deer.

That's a great read. 

The cool part about MIT doing the study is that they can actually do something about it.   :tup:

The irony is quite thick that the tribes have more latitude to study and address the real issues.  It explains the Love Hate relationship the department and tribes gave had with each other.

The tribes don't suffer from the same nonsensical anti-hunting influencers (both internal and external) that WDFW does. ;)

Good write up.  Thanks for sharing!
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

 :chuckle: Forget that. The only reason there's elk at all in any of the watersheds near Auburn is because the State took the Mucks to federal court for wiping out everything in there and forcing them to work with the State.

Sorry, but anything from a Muck I'll gladly not read. And Now in the last few years they magically farted out fairy dust and have rights in our territory? Give me a break.

Life's too short to hold a grudge. It is good information and it might be part of the court ruling forcing them to work with the state.

I'm not for special rights to hunt any area, but I am for good management of game and the state is not doing a very good job at it in my opinion.

The cougar quota needs to be doubled at the minimum if not tripled in some areas. In the 342, and 346, it needs to be tripled. Where I was after a Tom in late December, there were 5 other cougar tracks in 2 square miles in critical wintering grounds. A lady I know saw more than a dozen cats this past winter.

In the study area, there's way too many cougars and IMO is throwing the study off. Bring back hound hunting, or at least let the tribal members use hounds to hunt.
No longer a WA resident and not sad about it.

They can't? I thought they don't have to follow any of our hunting regulations. Why that one?
