Commission to set hunting seasons at April 3 meeting in Spokane

SPOKANEó The Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission will set 1999 hunting seasons at a public meeting here April 3.

The Saturday meeting starts at 8:30 a.m. in Empire Rooms A and B of the Ridpath Hotel, 515 W. Sprague Ave. Public input on any fish and wildlife topic is scheduled for approximately 9 a.m. and 3:45 p.m.

Most hunting season changes proposed for commission adoption are minor adjustments, such as calendar dates and special permit levels based on animal winter survival and other conditions. The commission will specifically address amendments to Game Management Unit boundaries; permits for moose, bighorn sheep and mountain goat; small game seasons including upland bird youth hunts and elk and deer seasons and special permits.

The commission will also:

  • consider recommending that the director adopt department/tribal hunting management guidelines later next month
  • consider adoption of volunteer cooperative enhancement program rules
  • hear an update on the department's budget
