I truelly love It if you had to pick a gmu for deer or elk and when those tags are gone sorry for your luck , and as much as I love the deer  multi season I think they should have way less tags,  and I totally agree with bango on the pick  a species of deer

If there was was public land to hunt in this state that might work.The problem is our public lands are over pressured from hunters tired of paying hunter fees to timber company's.Thats why no hunters are hunting this state.

Hmm " if there was public land to hunt in this state might work" ....... then you say there are no hunters in this state ?? There  is lots of land out there to hunt. Problem is the management  In place there's not enough animals , between predators and piss poor managment.  The timber companies I complain about charging also but if you were a business wouldn't you ? That's a whole different subject but predators  are our #1 issue  . I know people will try and say natives /poachers but we know that issue we can't touch predators are #1 it's time for.huge change and its.sad  . I think almost nightly if my boys will get the chance to do any of the wondrous stuff my father has  taught me

Bango's comments actually make alot of sense to me. 

I did see in the proposals that the early desert quality tag would now open on the same day as the general deer season(plus waterfowl).  So much for being a quality experience if you draw that tag.  It should open a week later than the general like it always has.
I don't see how that changes much for that unit. Don't think the deer are going be bothered much by the duck hunters and since there is no general deer season in the unit

I wasn't very nice with my comment on a lot of it.
Everything from stop overharvest,do your job,stop giving multiple permits for the same species to one person.No multiseason,No antlerless moose permits,you get the picture.I didn't approve anything.It was neutral,or disapprove.
Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

Other states break them down to units.

That would ruin it for those of us that hunt both east and west.

I would rather see weapons restrictions in areas that are over-hunted.

But the main problem is that the WDFW doesn't spend enough time improving habitat.

I've only seen a few areas where they actually planted protein sources.

There are also too many areas that are inaccessible due to overgrowth which encourages hunters to congregate around the same entrances.

The state has plenty of public land, it just isn't managed for much other than logging.

Yeah, thats the point.

What is wrong with hunting both east and west? You only get one deer tag.

If you rationed by gmu the state would have to lottery some areas. They would love that.

Which species are you trying to protect here? Mule deer? Just get rid of scoped rifles in GMUs by freeways. No more lucking out by the road.

Where is a unit that isn't crisscross with roads.

Whats wrong with it is that everybody that strikes out on mule deer comes over here to do the any buck whitetail rifle hunt because killing a yearling whitetail with a rifle during the rut is like shooting fish in a barrel.  Its everybodys backup plan, and it puts too much pressure on the resource that is not doing well.  Choosing a species would go a long way to fixing that.

Iím not sure what youíre talking about. Thereís a metric *censored* ton of public land in this state. And itís not that hard to find areas that arenít a pumpkin patch. It just takes the willingness and effort to get off the beaten path.

Not talking all roads.

I'm suggesting a limited weapons zone along highways and freeways in mule deer areas.
