Fewer hunting, fishing rule changes likely
The Columbian    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Washington wildlife officials may scale back their consideration of hunting and fishing regulation changes in 2011 and 2012 to comply with Gov. Chris Gregoire's order suspending and limiting state rule-making. In mid-November, Gregoire issued her order with the intent to help small businesses and local governments by providing stability and predictability during the economic recovery. "This executive order will also allow our state agencies to focus on delivering the front line services Washingtonians are depending on," she said in a news release. More

When you are hunting elk, the hammering of your heart is most noticeable in the silence before dawn, when you stop for a breather on the mountain.

Raffle permit hunts questioned
Columbia Basin Herald    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Recently an e-mail arrived at the Columbia Basin Herald Website in Washington questioning the raffle permit hunts offered each year by Fish and Wildlife. The writer, who shall remain anonymous, stated.

"I am writing this letter today because I think that the tax payers of Washington State should know that the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife is selling our game animals to the highest bidders, raffle permit hunts.

"Fish and Wildlife is selling raffle tickets for multiple animals and multiple species. Also, if you are drawn for one of these hunts, the hunting season runs from Sept. 1 to Dec. 31, instead of the 2 weeks that all of the other hunters are allowed. "It is my opinion that the game animals in Washington belong to tax payers and should not be a source of revenue. It is also my opinion that a lot of people depend on game animals as a food source for their families and if some are allowed to harvest multiple animals, it lowers the chances for others hunters that are only allowed one animal per species.

"If this bothers you, please let your elected officials and Fish and Wildlife know that you do want our big game animals protected, not sold.
