Swakane wildlife area
« on: November 28, 2021, 08:09:33 PM »
Big changes at the swakane wildlife area this year.

They cleaned up the shooting pit just past the orchard, installed berms and parking area. They posted all kinds of signs about no target shooting in other less used areas and a ton of no unauthorized vehicles beyond this sign where people would drive off road.

Hopefully people use the shooting area and keep the other areas clean. I’m also hopeful people quit driving off road creating hill climbs and causing erosion.

Unfortunately people are not following the e-bike on motorized vehicle roads only.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

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

Every father should remember that one day his children will follow his example instead of his advice.

Guys unloaded e-bikes everyday and road right up the road. 90 minutes into your hike a guy on an ebike comes by 15 minutes after he left his truck.

They said “class one” e-bikes aren’t included in the e-bike ban.

That’s why I don’t like them. Gets the lazy back to where you had to work for it.

They said “class one” e-bikes aren’t included in the e-bike ban.

I didn’t know they had different classes.

Class 1: eBikes that are pedal-assist only, with no throttle, and have a maximum assisted speed of 20 mph. Class 2: eBikes that also have a maximum speed of 20 mph, but are throttle-assisted. Class 3: eBikes that are pedal-assist only, with no throttle, and a maximum assisted speed of 28 mph.

We saw all of that last month when we went up there to shoot before the season. Every turn out had no shooting signs. The new area to shoot is nice but it was filled with people so we left. Be interesting to see how many people actually follow the rules

This is what the WAC code defines the motorized vehicle as

WAC 220-500-020 (17) defines motorized vehicle.

17) "Motorized vehicle," as defined in RCW 46.09.020 and 46.04.320, means a vehicle that derives motive power from an internal combustion engine or is propelled by electric power. For purposes of this chapter, it does not mean motorized wheel chairs used by persons with disabilities.

every time we go in there people were using the old pit and all of the pull offs that are now marked no target practice.  We only saw people at the range this time so hopefully they continue to just use that area.
