The game department needs to understand that we pay their bills. Until this point is made clear we値l be eating the gristle for the rest of our lives and my grandkids will be showing pictures of me with deer and elk to their friends and explaining an old past time called hunting. It値l be the exact same way I talk about hound hunting
The problem is we (hunters/anglers) pay less of their bills every year. WDFW is becoming less of a user-funded agency and more of a general state/federal tax funded agency.

Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Totally agree. I know reasonable minds could disagree, but I was in favor of the fishing fee increases this year. Compared with we spend on outdoor gear, in state licenses are trivial. Not being considered an important stakeholder in wildlife issues scares me as a hunter/fisherman. I know many of us (including myself) don稚 feel as though we are currently being treated as well as we should be, but it could be worse. The less important our dollars are, the less important we are.

That makes no sense, WDFW actually making a smart season change? Silly.
  It is better than nothing.     As much as it seems like just a band-aid to shut us up.   Want real results get out the bait and release the hounds

Hunter numbers have been steadily declining in WA since the 70s. Although I would take issue with one fact that BT hasn't considered: gun sales, which fund hunting and conservation through an 11% tax on firearms and ammo (and archery equipment), have increased exponentially since 1996. PR funds have actually increased and they are part of the WDFW budget that hunters pay for.

Do you think they got the message this past session when sport interests got their giant fee increase killed in the legislature?

Did survey/emails.
A few days ago .
I'm still a little hesitate that wdfw will actually change any rules this year.
But if your support it bango,then I will too.
First bear I ever shot was in August back when huckleberry was a August opener. :tup:
Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

I do believe that the licence increase being shut down was a eye opener.But there is department
Policy for conservation and sustainable wildlife populations that the department has not been keeping up on.Along with policy that they have to follow for PR funds .So basically they got to get there ducks in row.

what I don't get is why is there a survey to extend season and increase bag limit? if the population needs managing and is exceeding carry capacity it needs to be opened regardless of a survey asking hunters. Not like you are being forced to hunt bears.
