The Keefer broís just shared this on Facebook.  I assume itís reasonably accurate but not 100% as it says Washington cancelled spring bear hunts. They havenít yet but who knows what the future holds.

well they have suspended over half.And the best half.
yes, the other half sucks so they should just leave it open!!!!
I Agree
I got some more emails to send but not right now I'm too drunk about ready for sleep.
I pissed too man.
I've already sent God knows how many emails
This one I'm gonna say I want my lost time added to next year spring bear it not like they have high harvest rates anyway.Everybody that drawn this year gets tag next year +whatever new draws.
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.

Bro. Itís 5:00 somewhere.
:fire.:

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Bro. Itís 5:00 somewhere.

Not many old enough to remember this one but
"It's happy Hour in Bangkok

All I can find is where state lands, DNR and WDFW lands, are closed did not see any mention of the seasons being closed. So correct me if I am wrong which means instead of hunting public land get permission to hunt private property if you have to get out and  hunt that bad.

Spring bear seasons are closed in the northeast units, regardless of land closures

All you guys thinking that WDFW is going to reopen seasons May 4th are going to get a rude awakening this fall when WDFW cancels all deer and elk seasons too. This isnít over next month and Iím sure WDFW is salivating over the fact they get to cancel seasons right now

Not sure if this has been said, but if the governor mandates action that closes non essential businesses etc. the WDFW doesn't have a choice here.  Sounds like some are over estimating their reach.  They didnt ask for this situation.  They want us to be hunting and fishing. 

My young sons both have Kelly Hill tags, we are hopeful but it's not a WDFW decision. I'm also a pro fly fishing guide, so have a lot to gain with fishing opening back up, BUT again these mandates are coming from DC, to Olympia, and unfortunately all the way to eastern Washington where I live.  All we can do is hope for a change in the C19 situation. I agree with all comments and frustrations here, liquor stores have never seen more traffic yet I can't fish. Ridiculous yes. WDFW's decision? Definitely no.

I think they could help out a little bit more.We are talking about 700 tags that most people wait 4-8 years to draw.Its almost like a contract to hunt .Im paying and waiting for my chance,they sent out my permit/contract.They need to step up and honor it ,Lord knows Idaho would.

Here is one I have been looking at for two years.  Finally have the tag and will likely not be able to hunt him.... :bash: :bash: :bash:  He is always around in the spring, but I cannot find him in the fall.  We have named him Fred.  The first pic is this year and other is from last spring.    I will likely have to try this fall.  Bummed to say the least.
