The Commission agenda shows that the bear changes are scheduled for 1:40 pm, Friday. I was planning to attend but my work schedule got screwed up. I do know someone that's going so I'm going to ask him for an update Friday afternoon. They are only allowing 10 minutes for this in their agenda so hoping that's a good thing.

Cool, please let us know how it goes.  I think this is pretty much a done deal, but still.

How does it stand now if you harvest a spring bear on the east side? Are the fall seasons currently separate from spring?
what in the wild wild world of sports???

As it stands now only 1 bear per year can be harvested in e wa.  Spring bear is not an "additional bear."

Is that part of the proposed change?

The proposed change is an aug 1st opener and 2 bear limit statewide.  A spring bear will still count toward your 2 bear bag limit.

I have bought them a couple times in the past but it has always been after the season has started and I have filled my first one already. I may be mistaken but I donít know if the option to buy the second one comes up until after the season starts.

Makes sense i suppose.  I have no intention of buying a 2nd bear tag before the new regs are official anyways,  just checking.

As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

I wish I could have sent my 12 year old to the meeting.  He's besides himself.  "YOU MEAN WE COULD BE BEAR HUNTING WHILE WE'RE PICKING HUCKLEBERRIES!!!???  WE ALWAYS SEE BEARS WHEN WE PICK HUCKLEBERRIES!!!"   :chuckle:
Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes.  That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.
