I don't understand why you just wouldn't report it. :dunno:  They use the info to set the # of tags available for certain units and could be beneficial to your unit to report.

Iíve been given the fine at least 2 yrs when I for sure reported. Itís just a money grab anyway, unless the shape that are herds are in dire straights because not enough people report, but that canít be because itís the climate change  :rolleyes:

The fiscal note for the bill is being drawn up now. Once it's published I will provide it. It will include how many people are currently being fined for not submitting.

In archery we have something like the way of the superior man. When the archer misses the center of the target, he turns round and seeks for the cause of his failure in himself.

I can tell you that  i have missplaced my snow goose card, and my kids crab cards always seem to disapear.  Ive resorted to taking a pic of them so i at least have the report code and usually know exactly how many and where they were harvested anyway.

I paid once for not reporting salmon catch card. Never even fished for them and forgot I had one.

I always report after the close of the season because I don't want the fine or to forget. Occasionally, I'll even check the WDFW website to make sure my profile shows that I have reported and that my "submitted" status hasn't changed. I don't trust the WDFW not to say I didn't submit when I know I did. Case in point previous posts of people saying they have been fined on more than one occasion when they know they have submitted.
God Bless,
Scott

I was fined a couple times when I did file my reports, on time. The second time I declined to buy licenses & never hunted big game in Washington again. Itís what finally made me have enough & start hunting other states.

This! Itís happened to me their story (Wdfw) is the site crashed. They werenít interested in the information they just want the money.

I suspect the reason this politician wants to increase it is because it goes to general fund and this is a way of grabbing more money from the people because it prob happens more than you think. No way in one year would clerical costs double.

Did either of you request and/or receive your money back?

So I always write down the confirmation numbers of my reports. 2 years ago I got popped and I went strutting into fish and game with my notes ready to get the fine dropped. Long story short, an hour of negotiations and a call to Olympia and my confirmation numbers were completely pointless and I got to fork out my $10. I almost just walked away from WA hunting altogether at that point. I still get furious just thinking about it.  I screen shot them now and I am firmly against this proposal!!!

 I paid $20 in 2017 for not reporting in 2016 even though I did report.  Eventually I was refunded $10 of the $20.

So whats the percentage of hunters that do it now? Is there something driving this besides money
The fiscal note for the bill is being drawn up now. Once it's published I will provide it. It will include how many people are currently being fined for not submitting.

The money goes to the wildlife fund.

Just another way to shaft hunters.  Why with all the scrap going on in the last year would they think to do this.  Oh yah because they do not care thats why.

Thanks for that I wasnít sure. I just figured either way itís all about the money.
Regardless no way the costs to dole out a penalty double in one year unless you are just looking to screw hunters out of more dough.
