The season and details are still being hashed out but it is going to be pretty small scale and limited to begin with.  Hound hunters have a ways to go to rebuild trust with the larger hunting community and with conservation groups.

This bill was passed through the house and senate and a group of us worked hard to make it passable but still effective.  There were lots of compromises but it finally got a PASS vote from WDFW commission! 

It will allow 50 hound pursuit permits statewide after a pretty serious screening.  It also requires quite a bit of communication with WDFW enforcement staff.

Did Koontz vote for this?

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.

He did not.  I think the three NO votes were Kuntz, Smith, and Isaacson.

Iím a 0% fan of conservation northwest.  And this whole cougar bull is smoke and mirrors to make a small special interest group happy.  Itís not helping any way in cougar harvest in this state.  Quotas should be larger and hounds should be legal for a take season.  I used to do it when it was legal here and it was one of my favorite things.  My grandpa did it from the late 60ís on and taught us the ropes.

That sounds more like it.. i figured Baker had to be part of that group.

Is there a video of the meeting so we can listen to each members rationale for voting the way they did?

I've had hounds before ,a bill like this sounds great for someone that has already invested time and money into there hounds and need training time. Would I go out and get into hounds and start training and all that with absolutely no hope of ever hunting with them ,ah NO. So it's not really something for me.But don't really have any problems with it.

Do I want training hounds out Durring certain seasons when I'm trying to be a "boot hunter" for certain animals.Ahh NO,
So other than that being that certain times of the year may be better for training to take place. I really don't see a problem with it.

You said it perfect. I see it only benefiting a "select few" like it has for the past many years. The same select few would rather it be that way too. Pathetic.
