I don't follow these issues very closely do they typically act inline with public opinion or is there precedent to go against overwhelming public support?

Wdfw put the proposal out, and asked for public input.  Well, they got it.  718 in favor, 9 opposed.  That is absolutely an overwhelming margin of support.  They really only have the one way they can go after the way this went.  They have to make the change.  I think this is in the bag, as long as our *censored*bag governor doesnt just veto it like he did the increased cougar quotas a couple years ago.

At the GMAC meeting this past Saturday the Committee voted unanimously to endorse it, so hopefully that should help as well.

How much sway does the gmac have on the commission, director etc? Who are they appointed or elected by?

I would encourage you guys to do 2 things. Look at what the director has been doing and saying. DO the same for the commissioners. SO FAR I have liked the direction Susewind has gone on predators. Especially with his public statements.  The commisioners are not as public as the Dorector, so if have a tallied up vote history for them share it.

I don't know how much sway they have but they are suppose to be making recommendations to the Commission regarding game management and seasons and they are suppose to have a bit of input. It's my understanding that the WDFW Game Manager selects the groups that sit at the table. Currently there are a number of hunting groups at the table like Boone and Crockett, Washington Trappers Association,Washington State Bowhunters and several members from hunting clubs from across the state. I can't remember all the groups but the sportsmen are well represented and they are pretty much saying the same things as what is being said here, we need to manage predators.
