Public invited to comment on hunting
The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife announced
that hunters and other interested persons will have several opportunities to
comment on proposed hunting season alternatives for 2000 through 2002
at public meetings.
While the proposals have not been sharply defined because harvest
results of the 1999 seasons have not been compiled and spring population
surveys must be conducted, the proposals are based on the following
general principles: minimize changes to early general hunting season; ask the
archery, muzzleloader and modern firearm hunting groups to share
changes; and include group size and hunting success rates when asking groups
to share season changes. WDFW will also ask hunters to comment on
proposals to require them to report the results of their hunts each
year, whether or not they were successful.
Public meetings on the proposals will be held through January
from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at seven locations in the state, including:
Jan. 24 _ Fife, Best Western Executive Inne; and
Jan. 25 _ Everett, Snohomish County PUD, 2320 California Street.
Hunters are also invited to comment on the proposals via the
Internet at www.wa.gov/wdfw.
WDFW will use the comments received to develop
recommendations for commission consideration when
it meets April 7 and 8 in Yakima.
