Good information to be brought forward and I agree it should have been by the WDFW.   That being said, Id still love to have the tag

Goat's are pretty spread out in there.  I know of 6 area's that constantly hold goats so I don't think guys will be on top of each other. I would love that one tag.....
  couldn't agree more.  Plus I'm betting the billies I'd be targeting aren't the ones all the rest are after

I still don't understand why Blazed Ridge isn't a tag choice.  They allow raffle/auction and tribal hunts there.

I got a menacing look from a goat up there elk hunting last year. We better get a conflict tag going before there's a tradgedy. If it even saves one human life it's worth it

The 346 is plenty big enough for 4 hunters without them being on top of one another. I would be happy to draw the 1 tag for this year and let 3 hunters start before me.

Thanks for the heads up though, typical of the WDFW to not be straight forward with us hunters.

The closure was lifted this week except for the union creek area. Time to go find them goats! I saw a dozen this afternoon.
No longer a WA resident and not sad about it.

Probably the same one that gave me a long stare down a couple years ago when I was elk hunting. I swear he wanted to fight.

That is so messed up, Wdfw is trying to do the right thing but will it cost more later!  That area is small and if all four kill their goat Iím sure we wonít see tags given out in that unit for a couple years.

Its A lot bigger then one thinks,  plus you've got to remember none were harvested last year

I stopped at the ranger station to make sure the area I was going to be elk hunting in was open and safe. There was a fella there who had a goat tag. His area was closed. I think he was trying to plead his case to them. I felt pretty bad for him but it's nice to see wdfw make an attempt to help those guys out and give them another opportunity.
