I really do think that the strong public support helped.  They really emphasized that.  Good work to everyone who submitted!

So when do they bring up cougar?  We really need to get the quotas up on those things in the NE

Thats coming, but im not sure exactly when.  We need quotas up, but another thing id like to see is for the general season to go through jan 31st instead of dec 31st.  give us an extra month to hunt cats before harvest guideline shutdowns go into effect.
Im also going to ask for the season to open august 1st, to coincide with the bear opener.  i know most folks will be glassing berry patches in august, but some, myself included, will be calling.  and the thing with that is, most coyote callers do 5-15 minute sets.  General accepted theory is lions and bears often take much longer to come in to calls.  if youre calling lions or bears, you want to call for a solid hour.  so the guys out doing short calling sessions for coyotes in the winter have very low odds of calling in a lion.  but guys doing hour long calling sessions for bears have a much better chance of getting a cat.  So i think having cougar season open august 1st to coincide with bear would be a great idea.

This is great news!  For years my buddies and I used to do a bear camp in the middle of August. We killed a lot of bears back then. We quit holding our annual camp when they moved the opener to Sept. 1st. The berries are usually gone where we live in the NE.

Thanks to everybody who helped make this happen!

I see that they sent emails saying the commission approved it.
But have not actually seen the email from wdfw saying the regs have changed.Maybe I missed it. :dunno:

I know I get emails three times a day with fishing rule changes, But have not seen any hunting rule change emails.

If they don't change the regulations to what the commission approved is it legal to hunt bear in August.

Someone needs to email or call wdfw on this before a bunch of us get tickets for hunting out of season.
