I have read multiple post on this thread about "primitive weapon season".
Washington as never had a "primitive weapon season" that I'm know of!!
Where did that idea come from.
Hasn't always been a muzzleloader and archery season?
Because that's what archery and muzzleloader seasons are called by many game Departments in other states .Where the hunting is better than Washington. :chuckle: :chuckle: :chuckle:
Now what about the many posts on this topic about a persons eye sight and there ability to hunt.
Maybe I want my scope,range finder,and lazer sight on my bow ,my eyes are bad 😉 😉 😉.I'm getting a little old here since we are give ,take,take,take these days I'm gonna need multi season deer and elk ,with every advantage attached to my weapons.
Pretty Please.🤔
Which states "game departments"  (most are now fish and wildlife departments)  do you mean?  Oregon, Montana, Wyoming, Nevada, Utah, Arizona (That is all I checked) have no "primitive weapon season. Only Muzzleloader and archery.
From New Mexico to Florida and some states along the east coast of the country.
Is the hunting better ,I don't really know.
What is the definition of a primative weapon
A rock
Speer
Long bow or archery
Muzzleloader
Not sure maybe yours is different might be interesting to hear it.
Ask yourself why is archery season so long.More primative than muzzy ,maybe less harvest rates. :dunno:
But when scopes attract more people to your side of the pasture don't expect to play the primative weapon card when your season get shorter.
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.

Montana has a muzzy season?

No, there is Archery and any weapon season ... The last two years Iíve shot bucks with a shotgun slug during any weapon season.

I "think" that we don't have primitive weapon season because it would be difficult to define a "primitive weapon" Spear, sling, long bow ??
Allot of places don't allow hunting with spears.
Archery season is longer because they have been better at lobbing/being involved in the process.

"Montana has a muzzy season?"
I was trying to state Montana doesn't have primitive weapon season.
Most if not all western state have no primitive weapon season. Would have been a better way for me to state that.

Dude, put down the peace pipe.  And unless it's your name, learn how to spell chief.

....locked thread coming in 3...2...

Seriously guys, there is no resolution to this debate.  It sure seems like the Commission (before the new membership, however) was set to approve this, based upon the department's recommendation.  Who knows what will happen??

It won't be the end of the world.  Let's cool down just a bit.

One guy is banned. Thatís likely all thatís needed.
: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

 :hello:
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

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

It's actually very helpful for the mod team....

Posts that begin with or include " this post won't last long" "will likely get me banned" " is against the rules but needs to be said"....  It will, so don't post.

Posts that are childish name calling to members, mods, the forum....whatever....are simply not worth posting.  Do people really feel big and mighty,  sticking it to the man......to behave like a child? Really? News plash.....we (mods) really don't care. Our feelings are not hurt, no damage is done,  you accomplished nothing other than looking the fool and playing the part.

So yeah....if you are that guy or that gal, please....make those posts and really,  swing for the fence! Don't dilly dally in the gray area....let both barrels go baby! That makes it far easier....no long mod discussion,  no should we act or did we act to late or to soon.  None of that effort gets expended at all. Ban hammer pow boom one and done baby!

Carry on. :tup:
