I'm planning on going in October. I took those days off work for hunting season. This is more important to me. I will gladly miss a few days of hunting one season if that means I get to hunt the next 3 years.

I mentioned this to some guys at a pheasant release site. They heard about the bear/cougar situation, but didn't seem to understand how important this is. I reminded them  about hound hunting and trapping. Hopefully, they contact everyone they know to get into action!

Iíll be going. Iím not sure how much it will matter, but I canít do nothing and expect anything to be ok going forward.

If anybody is on the fence about traveling because of the cost, I live 90 min from Olympia and have 2 rooms that arenít used. We can even carpool.
What country can preserve it's liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon & pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants.

Despite all of the talk going on here, almost none of my buddies or family that hunt know anything about this until I mention it to them. I would venture to guess that 10-20% of WA hunters are vaguely aware of this situation at best.

Agree 100%, people who participate in these forums and actually know whats going on are a very small percentage.... I am preaching every chance I get and the amount of side-ways looks I get are unbelievable...

Is there opportunity for public comment at this meeting?  Or is going just a solidarity/increased presence thing?

Add in to that the amount of people that will refute that anything like this could ever happen.  Once you show them proof, and they still don't believe it.  I know hunters are a fickle group, but I am in awe at the amount of people that are blissfully ignorant to what is going on with our hunting rights and heritage.  However, I will continue to try to keep as many people informed as I can.

One does not hunt in order to kill; on the contrary, one kills in order to have hunted. If one were to present the sportsman with the death of the animal as a gift he would refuse it. What he is after is having to win it, to conquer the surly brute through his own effort and skill with all the extras that this carries with it: the immersion in the countryside, the healthfulness of the exercise, the distraction from his job. ~ Jose Ortega y Gasset
