I hope that some Huntwa members are close enough to attend the commission meeting in Port Angeles.  It is important that our voice is in the audience as you can bet the commission will be hearing from the other side.

Do what you can to get as many people as possible to take the survey (as long as they will support the change of course.)

August bears must have terrible hides at that point?

You can always hunt them later if you want.  me, i dont care.  We need more bears killed, and august is a much easier time to get it done.  Figure i dont keep hides from deer i kill, just meat and skull.  If a bears hide isnt great ill still get meat, fat, skull and claws.  And being able to focus on bears for a month before deer opens, and when berries are ripe, thats huge.
dont get me wrong, Iím not against more predator hunting opportunities. As a hunter Iíll always support all aspects of hunting, you couldnít pay me to ever kill an elephant, but Iíd never try to ban it.  I am a hide guy when it comes to bears, thatís all.

Currently.  Is GMU 578 east or west?  One bear limit or two?

Took the survey! Super easy, along with this and the wolf letter I think everybody should take the time to fill both out.

So dont hunt bears in august if its not for you, but still please take the survey to support this for the increased bag limit, the benefit to our herds, and for those of us who do want to hunt bears in august.

This is more about expanding hunting opportunity and hopefully putting a dent in the predator load then whether we should hunt in August or November.  I'm all for it although I don't foresee hunting bears in August anytime in my future.  Let's not get lost in the weeds here fellow hunters.

Done.  Would be a nice step in starting some better predator control!

They look much better than a rubbed out spring bear but do have short hair. Still tan up nice tho.
Hair off tanned bear hide would be cool
