Smith isnít confirmed, we need to let the senate committee know that she isnít working in the best interest of WDFW or of wildlife in Washington.

We also need to keep pressure on the commission, keep emailing!

Itís ok if the season starts may 1 or may 10.

We donít want this kicked down the road where we have to start the season process over from the beginning.
You do realize she is more than likely working in the interest of the chair and vice of that committee? Also confirmation is generally a low priority, this may change but in the past is gone years before sobering is confirmed.

Will be interesting to see where the Senate bills go.  Make it all a mute point.

I donít feel like this is good news

Not if you like to fish.  You get a NOAA attorney and the retired executive director of an orca activist organization.  One the good side he wants to cull seals but the chinook belong to the residents (orcas unfortunately).

I don't know about the third, only thing I saw was a letter saying WDFW was wrong in opposing some development that would impact elk.  His position was it's a small herd and they'll be fine.  Totally anecdotal, just the first thing I saw other than his publications on underestimating the danger to spotted owls along with other stuff on flying squirrels, bushy-tailed wood rats and other fine creatures.  Sounds like he won't be in our back pocket.

Told you guys not to wish Inslee to break out the pen.

i have a bad feeling about this. iím guessing the 4-3 vote to proceed with spring bear is going to a 5-4 vote not to adopt the rules in march. lehmkuhl is the only one i have any hope for.

Not looking good ,with new Commission members.
Just got done watching the last meeting.
Motion,to amend,this motion ,on top of this motion :chuckle: :chuckle:

Sounds like they better get busy. Then are these new guys are they on the Commission like RIGHT NOW.
I'm going to watch or attend the next meeting also.
Looked like the agenda has something to do with cougar and safety removals. Which is another hot topic for anti-hunters to try and stop.
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.

I wanted to see Brian Blake get the spot but to be honest I thought the chances were slim. He is just too pro-sportsmen to fit in with Insley's agenda. On top of that I feel like the WA Democrat party kind of abandoned Brian in the last election. He didn't move left with the party.
I don't think a few people on here criticizing him had anything to do with him not being picked.

Well, no they actually don't because they can serve on an interim basis. Even if they go to Senate to be confirmed Van de Wege controls that Committee. He is an animal rights supporter. He can hold the Confirmation hearing if he has the votes to confirm or if he does not he can refuse to schedule it. Either way, they are in.

That is like trying to climb a rope dipped in oil.
