Taking away quality permits or general season
« on: November 11, 2019, 09:29:12 AM »
Why? Why take away seasons.? I would like facts on why we would take general deer seasons away or quality permits. Do you really think that is the answer? Will the Hurd really rebound. Itís like having a re org. at a business.? If you donít change the bad business habits and or bad managers will it really get fixed?

Who is talking about taking the general season away?
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Every father should remember that one day his children will follow his example instead of his advice.

Just seems like some people on here are wanting that. I keep seeing comments on other threads. Just want to know why they think it will fix the problems.

Gotcha.

I put this in the deer hunting section since you mentioned deer in your post.  My guess is it will apply to elk as well.  Hopefully some chime in and explain why they would like to see it changed.

Here is the tough part of that question for me.

I would be more than willing to give up some general and all the quality permits for a few years if I thought it would help a bunch. The problem I have with it is with all the poaching, tribal over harvest and the state being a predator pit it would only benefit those 3 groups

I don't think taking away the seasons totally would even happen, too much revenue lost for WDFW. Also take a look at the special hunts, application fees that we NEVER get back,,,ie 22 years I've put in for Quality Hunt without being drawn.
But, I do think the pressure, or days the deer are hunted, by all groups could be shortened. I only hunt the mule deer herd in the Methow so this thought may not apply to all deer. :twocents:

:yeah:

A compromise in my opinion that I mentioned in another thread would be to hunt deer every other year and elk every other year opposite the year you can deer hunt.

Make a larger portion of antlerless hunts youth and senior hunts.

It would be something to try for a three year cycle like the 4 pt minimum they tried a few years ago.  My guess is just like that after three years of it the majority will want it back the way it was.

I am fine with it the way it is now and if they change I will adjust and still enjoy my time in the field with friends and family.

How about you have to shoot a cougar this year to hunt deer or elk next year sort of thing? Or a bear or X many coyotes. Change the poaching reward to pick of any special draw tag instead of just points. Some off the cuff thoughts

Then only like 100 people would be able to hunt the next year.

Yep, that would thin the ranks!

I donít know what the answers are.  Well, I do, but no one but hunters would agree to them. So until this state really makes some changes, I will continue to pursue more opportunities out of the state.

Make people buy either a whitetail tag, mule deer tag, or a blacktail tag. Not be able to hunt wherever they want for any species. I also think if you draw special tag, you should not be able to hunt the general seasons. Having said this, without some sort if limit or draws or something for mule deer, Washington will continue to be a subpar place to hunt mile deer.

Removing quality buck & doe hunts like the Alta hunt should be considered IMO. Doubtful the herd will rebound if something isn't done.

No doe hunting and a solid bounty on coyotes would be a good step imo
