Bummer!  Got a 1x Weaver scope off ebay.  Came quick and nice to look through BUT the cross hairs have a monstrous dot at their intersection.  must be 10 moa crosshair dot.  Without the dot it would be great.

Back to the drawing board !
The crosshairs can be swapped out.

So it kinda sounds like the scope thing on muzzleloaders isn't going to go through this time. I guess we'll know for sure on Friday which way it's going to go.
Based on what?

I definitely see that.  I just dont see any mention of that anywhere on the April 9th meeting info.  Where did you find that out of curiousity and what is the date it was posted (wherever it was posted.)  After your post, I read line by line all that is posted on WDFW's site.

On a side note, I love the proposal to allow people to turn pwrmits back and get pts back within 2 weeks of season.  Found that during my reading.

:dunno:
Bobcat just posted the slide from the Commission agenda summary.  The fact WDFW is now recommending against moving forward with it is a huge blow...they aren't going to do that unless they have pretty good sense the Commission is/was going to reject it.  Nothing is final until April 9, but if folks can find a buyer for their 1x scopes...I'd be selling.

Not stirring the pot, just letting people know what I've seen. First notice I got of it was an email from the WDFW today:

Quote
April 7, 2021
Contact: Commission office, 360-902-2267

Commission to consider 2021-23 hunting seasons, hatchery policy, hydraulic code rules

OLYMPIA – The Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission will make decisions on a number of topics at its April 9 virtual meeting, including setting hunting seasons for 2021-23, adopting an updated hatchery policy, establishing new rules to govern certain mining in state waters, and considering a petition to repeal restrictions on fishing from a floating vessel on a stretch of the Hoh River.

The Commission will consider adoption of 2021-23 hunting season proposals including hunting boundary changes, deer and elk seasons, waterfowl, and most game species. WDFW staff will propose the Commission postpone several proposed hunting equipment and method updates to allow staff more time to review public feedback.

Rumor is that there were two WDFW employees betting on which of two topics would generate most pages of discussion on this forum.  Some lucky person will be enjoying a steak dinner Friday night.

So now that they are presenting it.  They are not moving forward with scopes on muzzle loaders.  From what I am understanding.  These are tabled for further discussion.  Could come back in 22'

I listened to the presentation and this is the just of it:
WDFW requested to not move forward with the rules presented because they need more time to process.
The WDFW does not object to the rule changes and mention that most will move forward by 2022 abs possibly a few this year.
Since the rules don’t involve bag limits or seasons then the do not need to be processed at this time.
The commission was given an opportunity to comment on the WDFW recommendation and none chose to do so.
There will be no change to the rules.
