I was unable to watch any of the meetings.  Did anyone watch to see how the cougar issue went?

I'm curious as well.
Maybe I'll go look to see if it's been on the agenda.
Hope this doesn't turn into dragging there feet,then no season.

I already bought a tag for a fall season.

I just skimmed through some of the agenda.
Looks like there waiting for the comment period to end.
Cougar season will be a hot topic in July.
Also the anti-hunters are strong in the comments right now.
I just commented again,I would urge everyone to comment or comment again.

The commission met on Friday and Saturday. Looks like cougar seasons were discussed on Friday afternoon.

The recording of the Friday meeting is available at https://tvw.org/video/washington-fish-and-wildlife-commission-2024061250/?eventID=2024061250.

The discussion on cougar seasons starts around 2 hrs 47 minutes into the video, when the timestamp at the bottom right is at 4:16 PM.

I just started watching it. At the beginning they say they are extending the comment period only for 52 people who were signed up to give in-person comments but there was not time for them. But it isn't open for anyone else now.

We need to show up... and we need to show up at every meeting. I remember the earlier meeting in March or April where we had a lot of people at the meeting. It was joyous. I honestly cant say if it was the second April meeting that we had good turn out too but I watched it and I feel like it had dipped but I could be wrong.

I was at this one in Vancouver. As its a meeting near where I live. The cougar section was on Friday late afternoon. Now I know its during work hours etc etc but I'm telling you we need to start taking the half days of work off to show up if that's what is necessary. I fortunately could excuse myself early from work and what I can tell you is that when I showed up the room was not half full. Aka we missed an opportunity to take over a room and we didnt. Its great if you are in the room all day but you can show up just for your comment period. So the commitment with travel is a half day tops. We have enough hunters and fisherman here in Vancouver alone to have had that room filled past standing room only.

We ask them to bring our meetings closer to us so we dont have to go all the way to Olympia and the least we could do is show up. 

I'm sorry that my girls got stage fright, that was even tough for me. They could say there part with confidence at home but got a bit timid in that room. After watching the pro cougar folks bring their kids I felt we should bring a couple of our kids along too. I'm mighty proud of them. Plus its the first lesson in teaching them exactly what I am saying above. If we are passionate about something and we want change we need to perform our civic duty. Show up to the meetings, overwhelm their inbox's, and fill their voicemails.

They tally our comments online. The commission and really everyone since its recorded and on the WWW have to hear us when we show up. Its not just a check box for or against summarized in one slide.
Keep Calm Gobble On
