What’s the point of a comment like that? She’s done more for hunting in this state than a lot of us combined.
I know her well. She’ll be back. It’ll be more interesting to know who else will support the cause. If you contact her and she doesn’t answer, let me know.

Seems crazy to me that people want to put money and effort into establishing pronghorn populations when we cant even keep our deer, elk or moose populations healthy.  We should put effort into managing what we already have, and worry about being successful at that, before we go adding more animals to the mix.  Hell, we cant even keep a stable whitetail herd, how sad is that?

Pretty sure they’re working on more than just pronghorn. Maybe you guys should come and see what it’s all about rather than complaining and questioning then not doing anything to help.

This is sadly how this sort of thing usually goes. Been there done that. We all sit around and complain about hunting in our state and wildlife in our state. We then have a legitimate organization doing things to help  who are looking for support and people question and complain and make silly pointless comments.

 :hello:

Just checking in to see how we as a group treat a first time poster who is working to raise money to help our wildlife.

So far I am not impressed but maybe this thread will take an unexpected turn for the positive.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

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

The antelope project has been going on for over 10 years. Why start something and not see it through? This group has also spent a lot of time on big horn sheep and mountain goat projects as well. Its a small number of people who are actually getting this stuff done. So instead of criticizing why not get involved, a handful of people can only do so much!

•   $11,000 Vulcan Mountain Big Horn Sheep Projects
•   $2,300 Mountain Goat Relocation Support and Ear Tags
 
Personally, this is about the legacy that we leave for our children--being able to actively participate in raising funds to re-introduce Antelope, going to Nevada and putting my hands on 50+ antelope, watching the release, and then bringing my two young children into the field to see them and their babies – that’s important.  Taking Hunter Ed with my son and being in the outdoors with him, that’s important.  Receiving funding from SCI to add Wildlife curriculum into a local elementary school, to introduce concepts to kids that would instead never be exposed to this – that’s important. What we leave behind to future generations is critical. 

The fundraiser is coordinated by Seattle Sportsmen’s Conservation Foundation and Seattle Puget Sound Chapter of Safari Club International, both of which are voting members of Hunter’s Heritage Council and Washingtonians for Wildlife.  Many of our members spend their time lobbying in Olympia and Washington DC, in addition to partnering with WDFW. 

If you’d like to learn more about these organizations, you can visit www.working4wildlife.com and/or www.sciseattlepsc.com.  Both websites are in process of being updated, but give you a sense of the work that we do.  In addition, you are always welcome to attend our monthly meetings. Come to the event, meet us, get to know what we do, and share your opinions.  If you feel passionate that focus is being placed on the wrong things, get involved and help shape where we spend time and money.

I didn't know much about SSCF living on the east side,  but it looks legit, might be a great place to get your conservation on, and it's fairly local for you  :tup:

Im not complaining, im not questioning whether they do anything.  Just commenting on the pronghorn thing.  Just cant wrap my head around why people want to introduce a new big game animal when we cant manage the ones we have.

wasn't pronhorn a collaborative effort with tribes?   I'm not against doing that. 


agree on mismanagement of other big game species, letting caribou die then introducing prongs  /boggle


but still, I'm not against prongs in WA.

We got other threads to talk about these issues, this is for a fund raiser for SSCF so lets not  :jacked:

I think it's awesome we have antelope in Washington, and appreciate that local Safari Club chapters put funding and human resources into making it happen in addition to supporting other hunting and conservation causes.
Nature. It's cheaper than therapy.

SCI is one of the best organizations in the state, nation, and world, for getting things done that benefit wildlife and hunters. It amazes me that anyone would seem upset that an organization is trying to improve hunter opportunity when there are so many forces trying to take away hunter opportunity? Thank you SCI for all that you do!  :tup:

I would really like to make it this year.  Just curious, what is the conservation cash for?  What’s the difference between that and regular cash?

Thanks!

Conservation Ca$h is just like cash at the event -- it can be used to purchase raffle tickets, participate in games, pay for live auction and silent auction items. It can't be used for purchases at the cash bar. The benefit is that when you pre-purchase Conservation Ca$h, you save $ on your dinner ticket price. For example, buy $250 in Conservation Ca$h and your dinner ticket is discounted by $25.  Buy $1,000 in Conservation Ca$h and your dinner is free. (And the Lynnwood Convention Center doesn't have an ATM, so it's also convenient in that case, too, although we will gladly take a credit card for any of the above!)

Hope you can join us this year!

I believe conservation cash is money you purchase ahead of time at a discounted rate. You can use regular money there too. And plastic.

Life membership to Seattle Sportsmen's Conservation Foundation is a new membership option that started in November 2019.  Anyone that has purchased a life membership for SSCF to-date (since we began offering it in November 2019) will be entered.

Seems crazy to me that people want to put money and effort into establishing pronghorn populations when we cant even keep our deer, elk or moose populations healthy.  We should put effort into managing what we already have, and worry about being successful at that, before we go adding more animals to the mix.  Hell, we cant even keep a stable whitetail herd, how sad is that?

Good point there Bango. And I would prefer Washington SCF over Seattle SCF.

If you reference my earlier post in this thread, you will see the list of funded projects over the past 20 years.  You will also see that most of those projects are not Antelope-specific and are not Seattle-based. 

While I am new to hunting and new to Hunt WA, I am not new to volunteering my time to the wildlife of our state. I find it discouraging that fellow hunters aren't able to simply see that we are trying to do good things for hunters in Washington, regardless of the species.  No harm, no foul if you don't want to attend or support a fundraiser where the funds raised stay here in Washington state.

The majority can see the good things that SCI is doing all over the state, I don't understand why anyone would be opposed to any of those projects, but the majority can see the good, thanks for keeping us informed on this great fundraising event.  :tup:

How is this not directly benefiting hunters and the image of hunters throughout Washington?  :dunno:

 - Washington State Mountain Goat Surveys
 - Deer Hair Loss Studies
 - Hunters for the Hungry donations
 - Funding of hunts and fishing trips for veterans
 - Youth outdoor and educational programs
 - Mountain Goat relocation
 - Pronghorn Antelope re-introduction into eastern Washington

I love what you guys do.  What’s more is that groups like yours provide valuable funding and research that actually helps WDFW, rather than the leftist groups who just drain WDFW with meaningless lawsuits.

How many life members since nov are there?

Do you need to be present to win on the life member drawing?

I don't know the number of life memberships purchased to date and we will be selling life memberships at the event as well, so total number eligible to win is unknown at this time!  And yes, you must be present to win.
