WDFW Spring Bear 2022 cancelled!
« on: October 11, 2021, 10:27:20 AM »
I posted this in another thread, but thought it may get more eyeballs here.  Only takes a second.  The survey just asks if you generally agree or disagree or are neutral to the Spring Bear WAC.  Only takes a second.  Please share where ever you can.

I believe this is organizational strategy... one of the compaints we have heard here and elsewherr is that sportsmen dont show up. Everytime comment periods come around the Antis know that it is attack time and sportsmen are busy doing something else. We have to stand gaurd and and vigilant otherwise we will constantly get opportunities chipped away.
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.

Commented a couple days ago. Actually surprised to see how many pro hunting comments there were with solid logic and reasoning. All the anti's were purely based on emotion.

The survey also splits hunters, we should put up a poll.  I could argue we should agree with the spring hunting.  I also could argue we should oppose the current proposal which again reduces the tags available, an unfortunate trend.  I think I said it on the other thread, it should be two questions 1) Do you support spring hunting?  and if yes, then 2) Do you support the proposed regulations?

The way it's written you either support reducing tags again this year or oppose spring hunting altogether.

I didn't like that part either, and I made it clear in my comments that I was displeased with the reduction of tags.  In their wording if I support spring bear hunting than I am okay with tag reductions.  Which is horse pucky the way they did that.  Hell, there should be a OTC spring bear tags available for many areas of the state.  I outlined that in my comments as well.

Gary
One does not hunt in order to kill; on the contrary, one kills in order to have hunted. If one were to present the sportsman with the death of the animal as a gift he would refuse it. What he is after is having to win it, to conquer the surly brute through his own effort and skill with all the extras that this carries with it: the immersion in the countryside, the healthfulness of the exercise, the distraction from his job. ~ Jose Ortega y Gasset
