Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) Seeks Comments on Plans

Tuesday, May 22, 2007

Please Make Your Voice Heard Today!


It has come to the NRA's attention that WDFW is accepting public comment on its proposed rules concerning public use of department managed lands throughout Washington State.  Unfortunately, the deadline for public comment is the end of the day on Wednesday, May 23.  Please take the time to send a brief email to WDFW at wildthing@dfw.wa.gov.  Your email should request that hunting continue to be an accepted and encouraged activity on department lands.  This is essential for the protection of our hunting heritage and game animal and habitat management.

Your email comment should also request that recreational shooting continue to be accepted and encouraged on department managed land.  The proposed rules are contemplating many potential regulations associated with current recreational shooting practices.  Target shooting is a safe, time-honored tradition on public lands and there is no reason to prohibit it.  It also ensures that hunters who use the same lands are able to practice their skills in a real-world environment and zero rifles in order to ensure a clean, humane harvest.

Other activities and subjects affected by the proposed rules include camping, access to pets, parking and general public access.  You can find the proposed rules at
http://wdfw.wa.gov/lands/land_line/land_use_wac_3-30-07.pdf.  

Again, please have your voice heard regarding the proposed rules being considered by WDFW.  The interests of hunters and recreational shooters must be represented in the process.  Email your comments to
wildthing@dfw.wa.gov
