For those complaining about Washington cow elk tags....Oregon DFW would like you to "here, hold my beer we can top that" ....

OTC any legal weapon cow tags August through March.

I love elk hunting Oregon but wow it's going to be a massacre this year.  I know lots of elk-damage tags used to get issued, and if you went through an outfitter you could even exchange your unused fall bull tag for an elk-damage cow tag in January on ranch land for a small fee.   Now it's just OTC August through March for cows in those units.   The elk herd I like to hunt in the mountains in September migrates into that zone in the winter.   Very frustrating.

I don't think that it's going to be a massacre. I think you're going to have a lot of people that buy those tags and find out they don't have a place to hunt. Sure, there's some public land mixed in there, but not much. And not all those tags go till March, just where they really want them moved out. Some areas are very low density. For those, like myself, that utilize damage tags this is so much easier. Especially in areas with lots of broken up parcels.

Specifically in my area, ODFW cut the tag date because of the migration. I actually applaud ODFW on this move.

Whats funny, well not really, is the that they want to take away general cow tags but issue a bunch of cow tags via permit only. If you look at the number of cow tags they want to offer via permit its still more than the number of cows harvested in any given year.

I also have a hard time with the statement that they could not do 2020 population surveys because of the mild winter and lack of elk in normal wintering areas. So they just automatically assume the population is down. Now that's science for ya.  :bash:

No time for science or surveys if you follow the biweekly wildlife reports in the wdfw Website the same bios responsible for big game were busy catching and marking bumble bees for a national registry and hair trapping gray squirrels

Wow, so there was no early cow season or cow tags just a late general cow season. They cancelled all general cow and made it all permit only, early and late.

I am glad to see that they reduced all user groups.

I feel like looking at these proposal it might not be so bad if they just cancel the season. Numbers should be way up next year.
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.

Closing the season would be a bandaid on an open gun shot wound to the stomach.  Stopping non tribal hunters fixes nothing, gives the tribes the play ground to themselves, and laughing all the way to the meat locker.

These issues don’t need to be on the shoulder of us hunters only.

I believe bobcat and I said this before, we have to figure out a way to get the natives to manage and work w Wdfw.  One way seems very radical but it’s a way, open all Yakima gmu’s up for any weapon, any sex deer and elk! Sounds nuts but if we kill off everything, you’d think the tribes would have to wake up!
