August bears must have terrible hides at that point?


You get two tags, takes the pressure off getting a nice rug/trophy.

dump one for the freezer then be selective for the 2nd  :dunno:

Yup.  and if a guy is going to kill 2 bears per year, does he really need every hide to be prime? How many bear rugs can you fit in your house? Keep the occasional exceptional hide from a spring or late fall bear, and keep meat skull and claws from the rest.  and when youre enjoying your bear stew think about all the fawns and calfs youre saving for your future hunts.

They look much better than a rubbed out spring bear but do have short hair. Still tan up nice tho.

Public comments are open until may 16th via the emails and survey link provided, then it should be finalized one way or the other after the june 14-15th commission meeting in port angeles.  I encourage anybody who is able to go to the meeting, get there early, and sign up to talk.  Id go myself, but ill be on a boat headed to alaska.

If they make a decision in June, does this go into effect this year?
