I only see where they have closed the NE bear hunts, youth season and all state lands. I thought I read guys were claiming that spring turkey season has been closed already. Maybe I misread it, but that's what I was referring to.

Expect a announcement Monday about fishing and hunting after April 8. Itís not looking good. They are enjoying hitting the easy button so far.

BUT ITS OK TO GO STAND IN LINE AT THE STORE OR THE G DAMN POT SHOP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  YES, I'M YELLING, THIS IS F'  N BULL....

Maybe it isn't because of the people you are going to interact with while hunting but maybe the people you are interacting going to and from. Ok so maybe you won't interact with anyone going to or from but are you the rule or the exception. Or maybe you are the only person going bear hunting.
Life's a bitch and then you die so get over it and suck it up butterfup
My God, do we have to say this real slow? Listen up, I see and deal w more f n people at work than I would bear hunting!  I donít see people bear hunting, and if by chance I do, I donít get close to them!  You might go broke back mountain on guys when you see them in the woods, but I stay away!  So, again, Iíll say it, I deal with waaaaaaay more people at work than going hunting. Get it? Or do I need more spacing in between my words????

Who really knows, itís not so much the land being open, itís the bear season.  If they only closed the land, my butt would be bear hunting! But Iím not willing to poach.  My guess is, Monday all spring bear will close.  Possibly open back up on May 4th, Iím hoping thatís the worst case.  Also hoping most people turn in their permits to get points back so the woods arenít more crowded than normal.

Tagging,  good question.  We can keep this thread open but the moment it turns into a duplicate thread it's locked.

Well it's hard to say if it will all close.They don't want people to travel ,but there might be some west side units that have more local permits.The governor wants no recreation fish/hunt at all.They closed NE unit over 351 permits/Applicants so it's hard to believe that General Turkey would even be on the table.But nobody will know till Monday . But I will be sending more emails Monday if they intend to open Westside units asking why I can't hunt my unit since I'm only a few miles from where I intend to hunt.


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.

I urge anybody that has a spring bear permit to email WDFW .Kindly tell them about how you feel about possible units closing.Its better to email before your unit is shutdown.

Emails can be found here.

https://hunting-washington.com/smf/index.php/topic,248119.msg3338999/topicseen.html#new

The meeting to make the decision is Monday ,Let them know before then.

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.
