All the units around Mt. St. Helens had cow permits eliminated this year. Along with archery general season antlerless season.


yeah but they still have youth tags and i bet master hunter tags too.... seems to me that it should be all or nothing rather than group selection.. would rather see the over 65 guys get the "only" chances as their trips in the woods seem to slip away too soon....
   

I see 5 youth antlerless elk permits for 560, that's it.
yep, last season i think there were 8 total cow tags for area. never shows master hunter stuff.. i know farmers on north side use them in 560 every year... 5 elderly tags vs kids who have lifetime to hunt was my statement there... i will go a step further and say maybe over 75 yo hunters, not assisted shooting. those guys may never have a chance again to harvest,  cow gives a fighting chance on public lands......

I think its better to give tags to youth over old timers. My thinking is the 75 year old hunter has many, many hunting seasons under their belt and during the times of great herd numbers and less hunting pressure. Keep youth tags around to get the kids into hunting (we need a higher percentage of the population as hunters and so get them started early). Also the way things are going with herd numbers and wildlife commissions, its looking like the youth hunters will not get 60 years of hunting in like the 75 year old hunter has already been lucky enough to experience.  :twocents:
