Did we actually win one???  It looks like we might have pulled it off.
 A HUGE Thank you to all the folks out there that reached out and commented on this outrageous proposal.  It looks like we stopped this... again.   I truly believe without this forum spreading the word, this land would have been closed to hunting years ago.

Yes or No--Do the commission members actually see the emails sent to the commission???
Yes they do,after they proof read them,not 24 hours before commission meetings,but yes they do get to the commission at some point in time.
I'm still pretty sure that commission members are discouraged to speaking to the public directly.
And you will receive your canned email that's says it reached the commission.

But on another note.
Glad to hear this public land will stay open.
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.

That's great news.

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.   :sry:

And where does it say anything about boundary descriptions in that statement?

Thank you again folks.  On April 9 the WDFW officially pulled the proposal for the next year. 

They say they will "engage" stakeholders and hunters to come up with something that can be supported by all.  We shall see.......

I'm glad to see the GMU descriptions haven't changed in the regs. However, if you use the online Hunt Planner map, it now shows Elk Area 5066 to be within GMU 522, not 524 as it should be.

Weird. I wonder if they did the mapping before the proposal was tabled (assuming it would have passed).
