Upcoming Application Deadline for Washington Cougar Hunt
Somebody help me understand this....
Cougar hunting with the use of dogs is being encouraged in a few of these management units. Goal of these efforts is to help reduce the amount of cougar in the area.
Cougar hunting without the use of dogs (hillbillies in pickup trucks...like me) is not allowed to hunt cougar in these GMU's until later in the year. Goal of this effort is to increase the amount of cougar in the area.
Is it just me, or should Game officials maybe consider opening up the cougar hunt in these units to an all year type hunt, and open it to hillbillies in pickup trucks, in order to best achieve a reduction in cougar numbers in the region.
Or, is it all about the money? Cancel the hunt for all. Allow cougar numbers to increase, who cares about the deer...Open it up only to the guys who are willing to pay the extra fees to apply for a chance at the hunt?
Like most of you I'm certain, I love to shoot my guns. I enjoy shot after shot all day long at the shooting range… whether it is with one of my Shotguns, one of my rifles, or with my handgun… or when the crosshairs are on a big game animal in a safe shooting scenario. I love to shoot! What I don’t have the same excitement about is cleaning my gun afterwards.Now this is not going to be gun cleaning 101 as every kit comes with its own set of directions and the internet also has a great deal...
