I donít see how we can be held accountable if they canít even provide the rules to us. Could they pull us over for speeding if they just stop posting any of the speed limits but made them available online so we can look up any road we were on to see how fast we should be going. This whole new website is just a piece of crap and As already said is good for nothing but redirecting you to sponsors websites. I can say I am honestly guilty of just saying screw it and going with the rules that I thought/new to be legal because I couldnít find it mixed in with all of their garbage. So who knows maybe I was breaking the law maybe I wasnít. Probably would be interesting to ask them to point the violation out to you in the regulations if you were bustedÖÖ They say ignorance of the law is no excuse but if they never tell us what the dang law is how is that ignorance,  thatís not being informed

Everything they do is to generate revenue with little or no return to the public.

I guess thats my point.

We get less and less while they charge more and more.

I know a guy that got a ticket last year for "violating department rule" that wasn't written anywhere on their website, in the regulations, on the app, anywhere on the license or paperwork or in the laws.  Literally it wasn't printed anywhere.  Warden said it was "common sense" and he should have known or called the department to ask.  His choice was to take a day off to fight it and lose money or pay and get on with life.

Sounds like he ran into one of those LEOĎs that love to waste the judges time. Just throw charges at everyone and see what sticks to the wall. I really donít appreciate when they get that attitude of itís not my job to investigate I just hand out tickets talk to the judge. It actually is their job to investigate to find  out if the ticket is actually just or not. And I believe the argument of common sense went out the window years ago. If the last couple years hasnít shown everyone that peoples version of common sense can be polar opposites I donít know what will

I wonder how this would work with the new rules that have been put in place. That are effecting the local departments.  Since they are commissioned enforcement.

Reading this thread I thought Iíd go to their site & see if itís thst bad, since I donít live there anymore (thankfully). Following their links sent me to eregulations.com or something like that. They had a picture of the regs, but I couldnít open it, download it, save it, nothin.  Once I cleared away all the ads, first. What a bunch of crap, but Iím not surprised.

Found them today in Oregon of all places, Fisherman Marine Supply in Portland.  Called Sportsman's Warehouse, they have them also.  Not bad WDFW, only a month late.  As far as the App goes, it does you no good where there is no cell coverage, i.e. the Lewis River, Merwin, Yale and probably many more locations.  And the next person who says "well you can get it online" as if that's an excuse for WDFW's failure, I just want to slap them.  I want the pamphlet!


Anyway, thanks to everyone who contributed to this post.

I was at Vancouver Sportsman's WH on Thursday.  They had no idea when they would get them.  I guess I need to make another trip.

Got a couple of copies today at sportsman's in Kenn. Had to haggle a bit to get two as they were behind the desk.
Don't think i like the new sportsman's.
