Its unfortunate that so many anti's spoke in this, it just goes to show how much of a coordinated effort they have and being tied to the WDFW commission.

It just goes to show how unorganized hunters are. It's a multi billion dollar industry where hunters should have the upper hand when it comes to voicing their directive...but we don't.

Truly baffles me how much time and money hunters are willing to throw at tags, trips and gear yet the vast majority won't attend a meeting or throw 100 bucks at the orgs fighting to protect our heritage

I listened. The Tribal representation and Tom Nelson  were damning testimony about how sideways the Commission is getting. WA Wildlife First still doesn't have a good counter argument to being called by Tribes and marginalized communities, its worth hammering.


Completely agree.

These guys are "stakeholders" like the guy going 50 in the passing lane... they all pay taxes. 

Being a stake holder means you have something to lose and none of those anti's really have anything to lose while hunters and fishers have everything to lose.  Oh and we pay for all the management not the tax payers.  Legally speaking most of them are funded from out of state and as such don't have any stake in state owned resources.

fed up

Hunters are too busy posting grip and grins to their Instabook page, arguing about calibers and spot burning on forums to be bothered with such frivolous tasks
