More than one thing can be true at the same time.

 :yeah: :yeah:

100% agree.  I am not blind to the fact there are multiple factors....I just thought I could sit on my soap box for a while and bring up the cougar problem.    :chuckle: :chuckle:

Poaching, predators, disease, poor management, weather, etc., etc., etc., all play a part.

An archer never needed a doe tag in that unit. We were always able to shoot does until 2 years ago.

We also had massive fires in 2014, in addition to the 4-point restriction being lifted.
I Agree ,OTC Doe tags have there place,for youth,disabled,and archery ,when management and surplus animals exist.
Traditional if I remember right ,they would give archery the last five days of late season to smack a doe

I don't ever remember it hurting deer population,and gave opportunity.
But 2015 they gave ALOT of Doe OTC opportunity across the board and ever since antlerless opportunity has just slowly been erased.

Archerís could shoot a doe on the first, last and every other day of the season. It was always that way. Itís not now and Iím fine with that.

They could allow year around cat hunting with no quota.  They could allow us to bait cats.  They could allow us to trap cats.  They could allow us to hunt cougars at night. 

They can do a lot of things, but their biologist continue to blow smoke and say our state does not have a cat problem.  I have been told that our state has anywhere from 1500 ish cats / cougars.  This is complete BS and they know it.
I do believe it is legal to bait cats.

Weíve been beating a dead mule on cougar trapping our argument has been if you have a cat tag and are a licensed trapper then let us trap a cougar ( they go in bobcat cages constantly) it makes complete sense to me and a bunch of others but we get shot down by the commission every time about this  :bash:

And it could be selective like hounds, catch and release with a rush!!  Be careful out there

Let me give you guys an example of what I'm talking about.
Tomorrow is the last day rifle buck.
More Doe will hit the dirt than any other day of the season.

I don't know these things for fact,but I suspect it yes.

Total load of crap.
What exactly is a total load of crap.
I suppose in your perfect world poaching doesn't exist.
I'll tell ya what's a total load of crap.
Thinking that WDFW is gonna do anything different about predators,totally disregarded other issues that may be effecting our deer population. Keep living in a box where predators are the entire problem. And all your gonna see is deer numbers decline.
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.
