If they've ever come out before late April, I don't remember it...

Lets say everything is adopted as written. How can they possibly get all that in the regs on time?

They don't care anymore about getting the regulations out on time or anything else that benefits hunters. Sad to day the WDFW is not a pro hunting organization anymore.

I think you need to acknowledge the difference between the WDFW and the Commission. I have watched WDFW bios give presentations showing data why  it's perfectly sustainable to spring bear hunt as well as more recently defending out current fall bear and cougar seasons.

The Commission most definitely has a number of anti's on it.
You will never shoot a camp bull by spending all your time hunting in the woods.

It's probably ready to go already. If they do make a last minute change which they probably won't it should be very quick and easy. They ask us for our opinions to make us feel involved, but really they are gonna do what they want anyway.

I realize that, but typically the regs come out about a week after they are adopted, and the permit submission period opens about a week after the regs come out. Just seems really late.

This is going to be one of the latest final meetings to adopt the hunting rules that I can remember. I think some of it has to do with the way the calendar falls this year. Thanksgiving this year is going to be later.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

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

Didn't they modify the process...that the Director makes the decision?  And the Director's Hearing was 26 March - so i'm thinking maybe 2024 regs/seasons will get finalized soon...by the director?  Did anybody listen in on the 26 March meeting to confirm this is how it will work?

You are right they gave the power to the director, I believe that I heard somewhere in the past that he would be making a decision very soon after that meeting.

I watched and gave comment at that hearing. I'm still confused about the process. They seemed to say the Director could modify the proposals based on testimony. I did not think they could change anything without allowing another 30 days comment. I did not get the impression the Director could pass this on his own. There are WACs up for change and I think that has to go before the Commission.
Still no agenda for the April Commission meeting but it is about the only place for it to be before the Commission unless they vote on it in May with no presentation before the Commission. May is just a web conference so there won't be any public testimony at that time I think.
I have a call in to find out what the procedure is. Will report back when I hear something.

I know last year they delegated it to the Director. I didnít realize they did that again this year, with it being the 3-year season setting.

Whoever has the power to adopt them, can modify based on what they hear from public comment, and then adopt.
