Bear ID Exam
« on: April 24, 2018, 10:08:41 PM »
I can’t find the new one for Washington, it’s in the regulations (pg 70) for certain units. I have completed Montana’s and have my certification. It talks about using other states ID exams. Not sure how to submit it for record retention like Hunters Ed certificates. Any ideas. Also Wa does not have in the same location as the goose ID exam tried looking there too.

So I was having the same question since I have a spring bear tag and my brother pointed it out to me I needed to take the test. Well what I’m seeing on the website is that Washington’s test won’t even be available till July 1st after my season has already ended.  :dunno:

Like he said /\

"The bear identification test has been approved by the Fish and Wildlife Commission and will be available after July 1, 2018." https://wdfw.wa.gov/hunting/bear_cougar/bear/

They've updated the page since this year's regs were released. I took the test in April, but there was no way to print verification. If I recall correctly, at that time it was 16 pictures of bears of varying color, age and profiles (standing, side, face on, etc) with the question griz or black.
