WASHINGTON DEPARTMENT OF FISH AND WILDLIFE
2011-2012 COUGAR MANAGEMENT REMOVALS WITH THE AID OF DOGS



Cougar Management Removal Information:

· The applicant must be a Washington State resident who owns dogs capable of tracking and treeing a cougar. At the time of application, the owner must possess a valid big game license with cougar as a species option.

· Cougar Management Removals will be conducted from December 1st, 2011 to March 31st, 2012.

· Hunters may use any lawful big game modern firearm, archery, or muzzleloader equipment for hunting cougar.

· The permit holder may be required to give up the Cougar Management Removal permit if he/she violates any condition of the permit or violates other criminal laws while acting under the permit.

· Applicants must apply for a specific Hunt Zone. Up to four (4) Hunt Zones may be listed in order of priority. All applicants will be randomly ranked on a list by Hunt Zone. Applicants will be contacted from the ranked list on an as-needed basis and assigned to hunt in a specific portion of a GMU within their Hunt Zone if needed to address public safety issues or protection of livestock and pets. At this time, the Department anticipates that there will be very few GMUs meeting the requirements for a cougar management removal.

Removal quota system:

· Applicants contacted by the Department for participation in a cougar management removal will be issued a permit to hunt cougar with the aid of dogs in a portion of a GMU.

· The permit holder and all who accompany the permit holder must complete the Department’s Cougar Management Removal education course prior to participating in a Cougar Management Removal.

· To verify the cougar removal season is open or closed in a GMU, the permit holder shall call Olympia WDFW Enforcement Program Office within 24 hours prior to exercising a Cougar Management Removal permit. A permit holder may harvest one legal cougar.

· Permit holders may hunt cougar until the allotted numbers of cougars have been removed from their respective permit area, or March 31st, 2012, whichever occurs is first.

Yah these are public safety cougar removal permits. We have had these since 98 and will never lose these hunts. Bad part is you only get a couple square miles in the houses to hunt a cat that is traveling.

I think it's even worse than that, they are going to randomly rack and stack everyone and then call you IF they need you. I understand what your saying oldvesper77 and why you posted it, but Cougar hunting in WA with hounds is not back.

I think the only way to get our hound rights back in all states is unity, as much as it would suck not to hunt for a couple years it would show the public what we did as houndsmen, also the legislation wouldnt even attempt to ban any hunting again except for close to extingsion game. just my opinion
