sheep special permit question
« on: May 14, 2024, 06:36:12 PM »
In the 2024 big game regulations I picked  up today. On page 78, it shows that Umtanum is listed as #5 to include 51 and 52, whatever that means. So I go back to page 75, I see no 5, 51 or 52. Or anything that lists Umtanum. Does that mean that there is no hunt for that unit? Also on page 78, there is a listing for Selah butte, but again on pages 75 and 76 there are no places listed showing that there is a hunt choice for that unit.. Same thing with Sinlahekin! So my question is, why did they put these in there at all? I havn't figured out why this is like this. It has all changed from last year. I noticed there were other ones listed like 22 Black Butte. Why does it seem so confusing to me? I assume that this is a big screwup and there will be some kind of correction come out after the draw has been done.  Beyond that, can anyone help me with questions like, Are there still a good number of adult rams on Cleman mountain. Is Quilomene only a boat show to get there? How bout Swakane, does it have easy access with good numbers of rams, and any other questions that you may be able to help me with. Thanks in advance.

These are the sheep special permits.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

I believe he is referring to this.

I believe my post shows the available hunts this year and Bobís post shows the hunt units/boundaries. No Umtanum or Selah Butte hunts this year.

This for sure, but theyíve had it in there for quite a few years now. Did it suddenly kill a bunch of them recently or has this just been building up over time?

There are many sheep units in the state that have historically had tags and for whatever reason wdfw has decided they canít currently sustain any hunting take. Predation, pneumonia whatever. Mt Hull, Vulcan mt,  Sinlehekin etc. That doesnít mean they wonít ever have a tag again just not this year. The unit boundaries are still listed in the Regs.
