People get offended at nothing at all. So, speak your mind and be unapologetic.

Didnt you guys learn anything from this year? It doesnt matter how much support it has from the public, if not holding the hunt breaks the law or if the science supports the hunt, rather it's what the commission wants for the furries. Spring bear is gone and not coming back in 2023. :sry:

I could be wrong but I feel there are 3 swing votes, 3 yeses and 3 noes. We just need to swing 1 vote from the last tally

Agree with chem, even if 100% of the comments were in favor of spring bear, remember, you’re talking to a bunch of anti hunters.
“In common with”..... not so much!!

Some of the Yes vote Commissioners terms are up this year right? Not sure of the timing and whether they'll still be in for this vote.

That one new guy was asking for basically fish ladder equivalent population studies on bear populations...I think he was the one that didn't know we even had a spring turkey season? And that we primarily hunt big game animals during their rutting seasons?

I have a feeling he'll be a no again.

Perhaps its just me, but as I read it they are looking for amendments. Isnt this the same thing the Inland Northwest Wildllife Council had a proposal for?  The one where the year was removed from the regulation so that the hunts would take place the same as the previous year unless adopted?
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.

Hopefully you made a logical and level headed comment supporting it coming back.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

This is a definitions page
https://wdfw.wa.gov/about/regulations/glossary

This is the Bear CR101
https://wdfw.wa.gov/sites/default/files/about/regulations/filings/2022/WSR%2022-10-098.pdf

What it says

Reasons why rules on this subject may be needed and what they might accomplish:
Amendments would be needed to set season dates and permit numbers in order to offer a 2023 spring black bear season.
In addition to providing recreational hunting opportunity, a special permit season could assist the department with
addressing specific management needs that include, but are not limited to, tree damage on industrial managed
timberlands, human-bear conflict and damage, and harvest distribution.


If I am reading this right it means they are taking amendments to the WAC to be considered.

No attitude, but your ignorance is bliss. Guarantee I do way more than you any year to support hunting. I probably donated more money and time to supporting the spring bear hunt this year then you have in your entire life. Thinking you know me is pretty cool though....for you at least.  :bash:
