Ok, so let’s have another comment from the public contest!!  Again, let’s not listen to WDFW biologist, let’s listen to anti’s and pro hunters, BUT this time your comments will mean something……. I’m cem3434 on this.
“In common with”..... not so much!!

Doing nothing will do just that.
Get off you’re arses and be vocal.
100% agree we have too many that are not willing to make any kind of effort at all but are willing to complain when things don't go their way

Seems like there worried about 2023 spring bear.
Makes me wonder how much money was lost.
5k....10k....15k... 20k.....Who knows.
On another note ,I can see why some might be a little reluctant to comment.
Maybe there hoping to slip this comment period by a few of these anti-hunter groups. :dunno:
I really don't know if that would change the Commission vote.
On the other hand it seems like it's not gonna hurt anything to slam a comment in there.
But I agree with some on here no point in getting your hopes up.
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 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
:dunno: you feel like there are 3 swing votes? You must be seeing something I'm not.  I see 5 no 1 probably no and 3 yes.

It was 5 to 4 last vote. I wouldn’t say that the swing people would move easily but we only have to gain 1 vote.

If I didn’t my math right WDFW lost $26,200 not running a draw. Plus the labor hours put into the biologists, policy writers, etc.
People get offended at nothing at all. So, speak your mind and be unapologetic.

Lol we did
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.

The swing will be tough. He is supposedly a hunter but he referred to hunters as “you” guys get two bears and 2 1/2 months to hunt.  Why do “you” guys really need a spring season.  If he really was a hunter, he would of said we I’d think.

They don't need to comment when they're seated at the table.

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:

What a great attitude to have! Thanks for doing your part!

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:

Lol holy toledo.
Didn’t realize I was talking to the Grand Poobah of donations and supporter of conservation! I’m so so so sorry I hurt your feelings disrespected you in any way. You have my deepest apologies and I sincerely vow to never commit treason against the nutsack man who’s put in more work and money towards one issue than I have in my entire life.

Once again sir, I apologize.
