This may not be the right place, but could we try to get rhe innitiave banning hound hunting back to a vote? Get big donors to spend tons of ad revenue in seattle showing all the positives etc and the benefit to wildlife?
It can be overturned by a majority vote of the Legislature. Fighting it through the Initiative process would probably take $10 million. Better to spend that money in the elections. At this point it seems pretty hopeless.

:yeah:  How could anyone have hope??  We live in a Blue state, ran by the WORST Governor ever if you're a true outdoorsman. Looking back at what has transpired, it's all been planned. Starting back to outlawing dogs for cats and bears. They have been slowly and methodically picking and implementing regulations that would one day set up their big plan. Everything that is now in place cannot be changed, like hound hunting. So, since the predators are here to stay, their only argument for "saving" the deer, elk, and fish population is to ban all hunting. I've seen it coming for so long, and people looked at me like I was a conspiracy theorist. These peolpe pushing this stuff truly dont care about our game population, they care about being antihunting. So, if they dont see first hand how predators effect our game, its worth it to them if it means banning hunting.

The state never "outlawed" hound hunting and baiting for bears.  That was done by a ballot initiative in 1996 that had a very well put together and misleading ad campaign by multiple anti-hunting and AR groups.  Groups which some of the current commission members are proponents of to this day.  That's why it's so hard to get that law changed.  It would take another ballot initiative to be voted on "by the people" to overturn it.  Which it would never fly in this state as now there are too many bleeding hearts that have no clue as to how real game management should be done for any species.

Not only that but they got hound hunting for cougars and bears along with baiting for bears onto one ballot initiative. Washington is a single ballot initiative state but they found some bleeding heart, panty waist judge to allow both to be on the same initiative.

I sure hope our trump hating, liberal, democrat, brainwashed members on here are happy. If they think they have nothing to do w this mess because they hunt, they are fools. It’s all connected, you voted against republicans, you voted against hunting! Twist it any damn way you want to make your decision sit better, but you are a part of the anti hunting crowd.
“In common with”..... not so much!!
