OLYMPIA – The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) invites the public to submit written comment on a proposed spring black bear season rule change by Oct. 29.
The proposed rule modifies season dates, permit numbers in some areas, and removes two private timberland properties from the North Skagit hunt.
“We need your feedback on the proposed rule to better understand how the public feels about adjusting season dates and permit numbers in some areas,” said Anis Aoude, WDFW game division manager. “We’ll use this information to guide how we offer spring black bear opportunities in 2021.”
