I can say undoubtably if they put an august opener on the north east I'll be there chasing bears.

That makes no sense, WDFW actually making a smart season change? Silly.
May my presence go unnoticed, may my shot be true, may the blood trail be short.

Amen

I hope it's true .
Huckleberry unit was August opener years ago and it was great.Didn't really understand why it was changed.
There are so many areas I had game cams last year and getting 3x more pics of bears then deer.
I think a lot of animals get to know the hunting seasons
And learn when to hide out .August opener will help get some tags filled.
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 talked to fish and game a few years ago about moving the open date to August 15th and they stated that the reason it changed was the conflicts between bear hunters and huckleberry pickers. At the time they stated that it would not change back.

I may be missing something but i dont see bears on any of the agenda meetings.
People get offended at nothing at all. So, speak your mind and be unapologetic.

Bears were discussed at length in Spokane earlier.......as were all predators in general.

Ya the biggest hurdle for the new director, provided he truly wants to make a difference, will be to re establish honesty.  BIG hurdle, since the agency is many years into the misinform, mislead, lie above all else until you believe your own lies defacto of standard operating procedures.

Then add in agenda driven studies that have zero true value.

Hopefully it's true. A second bear tag in the NE would also be nice.

What im hearing is its actually going to be statewide, 2 bears / aug 1st opener.  Really hope its true, and im not just blowing smoke up everybodys asses.
