I meet Wingaurd at a WWA meeting when he explained the private lands program for waterfowl. This appears to be an extension of the same program. I could see this being a boon for archers as Shooting a bow doesnt seem to concern as many folks as firearms do.

The waterfowl $ comes from the same source which is why  when waterfowling they had the survey cards about time spent, success, etc. My interactions with Rob were positive.
In archery we have something like the way of the superior man. When the archer misses the center of the target, he turns round and seeks for the cause of his failure in himself.

Loki...I "heard" them talking about this a few weeks ago on ESPN's The Outdoor Line....here is the WDFW press release:

https://wdfw.wa.gov/news/wdfw-offering-1000-encourage-hunting-private-property-san-juan-and-island-counties

I've seen the article. I don't think it will work... unless the landowner can choose who hunts. I would certainly discourage my neighbors from allowing a free-for-all....

So, if I am understanding this, currently they can let their friends & family or any one they want to allow to hunt, but reading your post, it sounds like you would have them get paid and then still limit access to friends, family or only people they choose???

Sounds like they would have quite a bit of control over how many people, when they can hunt so hardly sounds like a free-for-all, unless I am missing something??  :dunno:
It is better to be consistently incorrect than inconsistently correct...

Sarcasm: The ability to insult stupid people without them realizing it. 

My level of sarcasm depends on your level of stupidity...

Sarcasm makes smart people laugh and stupid people mad.

Blacktail, I'm saying there are a lot of slob hunters out there, sad but true, that I would not want hunting anywhere near me... one of the reasons I don't tend to hunt public land.  Just my  :twocents:

The private land system is hardly a free for all and it works very well.  Except perhaps for the “hunt by written permission” part which gets abused by the land owners.  The “hunt by reservation” system would work quite well there as it does all over the state.  WDFW knows exactly who is there and when and controls all aspects of the hunt.  I doubt if you will see any “feel free to hunt” spots open up on San Juan Island.
