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

WDFW will use the comments received to develop

recommendations for commission consideration when

it meets April 7 and 8 in Yakima.
