We got screwed on everything.  Theyll be losing a good deal of money from me each year from here on out, screw wdfw.  One of you can buy my leftover multi deer this year, im not giving them the money.  No more raffles, no more buying elk or predator tags or apps of any kind.  Ive had it.

From brock hoenes, wdfw deer and elk section manager.  Part of an email i recieved from him:
We will be proposing changes to our general black-bear seasons during the June Commission meeting, which will include opening the season on August 1 and liberalizing the bag limit to include 2 bears.  I encourage you to participate during that process just as you did in Spokane.  We could not propose changes during the recent March-April Commission process because the WAC was not “open”, which prevented us from making changes.

Would the proposal be for this fall or next fall?  What's the protocol for voicing my support other than being at the meeting?

Hoping its for this fall, thats my impression.  You need to show up to the meeting early, id suggest at least by a half hour, and sign up to speak in the public comment period.

I got my fingers crossed it goes through this fall, still hoping for OTC spring bear too.

They need to open central wa too. I find giant bears in the spring there, but no draw tags of any kind. I really hope they get something going for this. That ne needs some reprieve from all the predators being mixed in around there

People get offended at nothing at all. So, speak your mind and be unapologetic.
