Youd better re read that big bucker it says you CAN NOT use electronic calls for deer. It is interesting to know that you can use them for cougar, good to know, Sometimes you have to read between the subsections in the regs. YOur wondering if you can use electronic calls you should look in the section with the shooting times and or in between the advertising. I actually have a game warden that lives next door to me and we've discussed it before but most washington hunters dont read the regs because every year the regs get more ridiculous and harder to read and make sense of.

Yes, electronics are against the law for deer/ducks/turks but the are legal for bear/cougar/elk.
But probably not for long... every year things are getting tighter.

I just talked to the WDFW enforcement and they said they are in the process of making ALL ELECTRONIC CALLS illigal because "IT IS TO DANGEROUS, BECAUSE YOU MIGHT CALL IN BEARS OR COUGARS IF YOU ARE CALLING COYOTES" MY RESPONSE WAS "AND TAHT IS A BAD THING?" so use them while we can. And you can use them on anything besides waterfowl, wild turkeys, or deer........
bear, cougar, elk, racoon, coyote, fox,hog, rabitt, bobcat, goat, moose, big horn, crow are all far game.

The Enforcement office in Olympia? Did you get a name? Can you get a name?
I talked with a woman down there today and she said that is not true. I also called Education and they said it wasn't true.

That being said, I know that the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing down there and I don't trust em one bit.

I will pm you a link to this topic on another forum.

We, as hunters and sportsman, need to go to the meetings and have a say in these matters. If they ban baiting for deer, then what happens when you shoot one out of an orchard?

as long as you didnt place the fruit as bait and it is a natrual matter then you should be fine in my opinion (but they dont really care about our opinion
