WDFW proposing to Ban Baiting
« on: July 18, 2021, 09:04:02 AM »
WDFW appears to be quietly slipping in a deer/elk baiting ban...by recommending it via the CWD Management Plan (pg. 36). 

I'd suggest submitting comments by the Jul 28 deadline if you are inclined: https://wdfw.wa.gov/licenses/environmental/sepa/open-comments

A couple points I've thought of:
1. Baiting is regulated to 10 gallons, a small quantity which is very unlikely to concentrate animals to any degree
2. There is no scientific evidence of small bait quantities leading to the spread of CWD
3. CWD is not even in the state (or neighboring state ID)...so a preemptive ban is ridiculous.
4. Banning baiting is racist, sexist, and discriminatory against disabled hunters.

WDFW caving in to anti hunt/anti kill pressure.  The cwd thing is how they will justify it because so few people actually know anything about it.

If you think success rates are low now, just wait and see what happens when all the guys who cant scout also cant dump food on the ground.

Ill add its been in the works for several years and theyve already got their minds made up on this.

See that page 42 of the draft plan.
WDFW ready for the loss of revenue that may be caused from there rule change.
Sounds like no more deer urine too.

NE Washington the wolves will save us all ,they only kill the sick ones right. What a joke.

First you decrease hunters by taking the bait option away.
Then CWD hits even more hunters drop out of the game.
Then what no revenue to deal with the problem.

Sounds like them elk feeding station gone.
Them elk herds will be gone by damage permits in no time.

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.

"To Whom It May Concern,

Suggesting a preemptive ban on baiting for deer and elk, when there is no CWD in WA (or ID for that matter), is ridiculous. You’ve already limited the amount of bait allowed. We stood by and accepted it. Now, you want to ban it completely and for no justifiable reason? Your proposal would further reduce the ability of hunters in this state to fill their tags and feed their families. How about instead of yearly changes to the rules and seasons which negatively affect the people who pay your bills, you give us a break. Hunting in our state should not be as restricted as it already is. Do you want to encourage fewer and fewer people to take up hunting here? Because that’s what you’ve been doing. Stop the trend to discourage our state’s hunters and start with this idiotic proposal.

I don't really do Alot of feeding Durring the season ,I'm really too busy hunting. Pre-season and after the seasons through the winter.
This not only hurts the hunter but deer as well.

I'm with you.  I bait to take inventory and see if an area is worth hunting, rarely do I hunt anywhere near the bait.

I really love(hate) how this state will shove things down our throat and tell us all about the science says...but only if it fits their agenda.  In this case it doesn't,  it doesn't even pass the common sense test, yet it is proposed....

Where do they find these people?

Done. I hit on a lot of the same points: unnecessary no cwd here, 10 gal limit already solves mass concentration, it will hurt animals that won’t have supplemental feed often put out year round by hunters and people who enjoy watching them,  and also emphasized how they were voting their budgets and jobs away by continuing to make unnecessary rules that drive hunters away from the sport. Hopefully everyone gets on board and sends An email against this.

Unbelievable.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.
