I went in today to buy my razor clam license for next weeks tides. They said they weren't available yet so it looks like everything is down to the last minute.
They should present the three year package at one meeting and approve it at the next. I don't see how they cannot vote on approval at the April meeting though. It feels like there will be no consideration of comments at least by the Commission.
Did you know a combo fish license covers razor clams?  Just letting you know.
I bought a shellfish license but it is more money for stuff I will not do.

If the open date for putting in for special hunts is april 15th then the reg's should be out by Monday the 8th right. Its been about a week after reg's for quite a few years now. And the closing date is May 15th which is month later. Same amount of time to put in as it has been. thoughts?

Cant happen because the rules donít get officially adopted until after the commission meeting April 18-20th.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Every father should remember that one day his children will follow his example instead of his advice.

Well it shouldn't take more than a week to put in apps.
So hopefully they keep the mid May deadline.
Otherwise it'll be July before result's are out.

Not cutting the commission any slack though
If they did their job and focused on providing us opportunity instead of figuring out how to take it away it wouldn't be last minute.

Can sue wdfw for false advertising 😆

I still say early next week. If they wait until after the commission meeting they won't be out until the end of the month or almost. Quite aways past the norm.

 :yeah:

I'm thinking new regs will be posted online by the 15th. They're just not being very transparent with the process, and the timeline of when it's being approved, and how.

So you think they will post regs on the 15th, modify rules on the 18th and put out emergency rule change notices online on the 22nd?

No idea really, but I know they like to give people the maximum possible amount of time to spend money on special permit applications, so I can't see them giving us a shorter window. Although like I said before I wouldn't be all that surprised to have them at the last minute just come out and say hunting season is cancelled due to the predators not having enough to eat.

I think they need to put out the new hunting regs by at least when the new licenses go into effect, if not sooner. There really is no excuse. If they need to push back season setting meetings then do it. Start in the summer or earlier. Oh they need harvest stats and critter counts. They have plenty of data. How does Montana and Idaho do it?

Montana doesnít care about the survival of their elk herds and that is why they donít even require hunting reports. Idaho sets 2 year cycles and donít make adjustments even if there is significant loss during the winter. Both states basically say it is what it is without any true science.

Not trying to say Washington does it right and puts science and sense into their process but we know why Montana and Idaho have their regs out on time.

I don't see how they can do that. They haven't approved anything yet nor do they have a meeting scheduled to vote on it until the weekend after next.

My guess is that it was delegated to the Director like last year.  :dunno:

There are updates to tag numbers every year. The commission can delegate their authority to the Director.
