To preserve, protect and perpetuate fish, wildlife and ecosystems while providing sustainable fish and wildlife recreational and commercial opportunities.

"Commissioner Rowland stated she has no interest in discussing spring bear as she feels we should not have one." She's using her personal political beliefs instead of wildlife science to determine what she thinks is right or wrong. In my opinion, someone who is anti-sustainable-hunting by any extent whatsoever should not be on the Commission, as it is contrary to their stated mission.

There's also an RCW 77.04.040 which states that the Governor shall seek to maintain a balance reflecting all aspects of fish and wildlife, including representation recommended by organized groups representing sport fishers, commercial fishers, hunters, private landowners, environmentalists. Currently the commission is way too far leaning towards environmentalists. Not sure how we could come together to challenge this but its worth discussing.

I would classify them as climate alarmists and predator starvationists.

WWC:
The direct link is now included on the first post now that it is publicly available.

Well I sure donít think I would be too upset if Smith and Rowland followed through with their threats of self harm if they are forced to discuss the possibility of a spring bear season again. Iím definitely not advocating violence but if they say they want to shoot themself in the head before discussing spring bear season again then that is their choice And who are we to keep them from it. Ridiculous we have people on the commission that flat out say their minds are made up and they will not listen to any testimony, proof, or anything else. They are not upholding the duty of their job and they should be removed
