[ Order 05-89 -- Filed May 10, 2005, 2:10 p.m. , effective June 10, 2005 ]


Effective Date of Rule: Thirty-one days after filing.

Purpose: Amend WAC 232-28-341 2003-04, 2004-05, 2005-06 Small game seasons, 232-28-273 2005 Moose, bighorn sheep, and mountain goat seasons and permit quotas, 232-28-282 Big game and wild turkey auction, raffle, and special incentive permits, 232-28-335 Game management units (GMUs) boundary descriptions -- Region five, 232-28-248 Special closures and firearm restriction areas, and 232-28-351 Deer general seasons and special permits.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Amending WAC 232-28-341, 232-28-273, 232-28-282, 232-28-335, 232-28-248, and 232-28-351.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 77.12.047.

Adopted under notice filed as WSR 05-06-106 and 05-06-108 on March 2, 2005.

Changes Other than Editing from Proposed to Adopted Version: WAC 232-28-341 2003-04, 2004-05, 2005-06 Small game seasons.

Changes, if any, from the text of the proposed rule and reasons for difference:


&sqbul; Original Language: Fall Turkey Season: Open to all hunters in GMUs 105-124. September 24 - Sept. 30, 2005.
&sqbul; Change: Date Change: September 24 - Sept. 30 and October 8 - Oct. 14, 2005
&sqbul; Rationale: This change should accomplish two objectives: 1) Increase the fall season harvest in specific GMUs to address concerns related to high turkey populations; 2) increase fall season hunting opportunities.

&sqbul; Original Language: Permit Only Fall Turkey Season: Permit Area GMU 124
&sqbul; Change: Delete GMU 124 from the Permit Area list
&sqbul; Rationale: GMU 124 is listed in the fall season that is open to all hunters and was mistakenly included in the Permit Area list.

WAC 232-28-273 2005 Moose, bighorn sheep, and mountain goat seasons and permit quotas.

Changes, if any, from the text of the proposed rule and reasons for difference:


&sqbul; Change the following bighorn sheep permit-season dates to accommodate calendar date adjustments:

WAC 232-28-248 Special closures and firearm restriction areas.

Changes, if any, from the text of the proposed rule and reasons for difference:


&sqbul; Remove number 1 pertaining to the Little Pend Oreille National Wildlife Refuge. This change is in response to a request by the Little Pend Oreille Wildlife Refuge. Military training is no longer being conducted on the refuge so the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service wants to open the entire refuge to hunting when state hunting seasons are open. The change will simplify the current restrictions and increase access to more refuge land for hunting opportunities.

WAC 232-28-351 2003-2005 Deer general seasons and special permits.

Changes, if any, from the text of the proposed rule and reasons for difference:


Early Archery Eastern Washington Mule Deer

&sqbul; For the Sept. 16-30, remove 328, 334 through 340, 346 through 368. This is redundant with the Sept. 1-30 hunt.
&sqbul; Change 145, 163, and 178 to 3 pt. minimum or antlerless. Late archery is having little impact on mule deer buck survival. Removing the hunt for bucks is not likely to improve buck ratios in these units.

Early Muzzleloader Eastern Washington Whitetail Deer

&sqbul; Remove the hunt in Deer Areas 1030 and 1040. This hunt was not going to be effective in reducing the white-tailed deer population enough to accomplish the Washington State University cougar research and needs to be removed.

Early Muzzleloader Eastern Washington Mule Deer

&sqbul; Remove the hunt in Deer Areas 1030 and 1040. This hunt was not going to be effective in reducing the white-tailed deer population enough to accomplish the Washington State University cougar research and needs to be removed.

Late Muzzleloader Western Washington Blacktail Deer

&sqbul; Move GMU 407 from the any buck to the any deer section. This change will help with population control along the agricultural and suburban interface and provide some additional opportunity.

Modern Firearm Deer Permit Hunts

&sqbul; Change number of permits for Kelly Hill from 25-150 to make up for deleting special permit and muzzleloader hunts in Deer Areas 1030 and 1040.
&sqbul; Change the dates for the Steptoe and the Almota A hunts to Oct. 15-23 & Nov. 7-19. This change is a calendar date adjustment that was omitted in the filing.
&sqbul; Change the dates for the Cowiche B hunt from Nov. 8-21 to Nov. 7-19. This change avoids an unintentional overlap between late archery elk and modern firearm deer.
&sqbul; Change the dates for the Green River A hunt to Oct. 29-Nov. 4. This is a calendar shift adjustment and is consistent with the dates of access agreed upon with the land manager.
&sqbul; Adjust the calendar dates for East Klickitat A, Lincoln A, Stella A, Mossyrock A, Stormking A, South Rainier A, Packwood A, Winston A, Yale A, Toutle A, Marble A, Lewis River A, Siouxon A, Wind River A, Wind River B, West Klickitat A, West Klickitat B, Grayback A, Grayback B, Pysht, Olympic, Kitsap, Wynoochee A, Wynoochee B, North River A, Minot Peak, Capitol Peak A, Deschutes, and Skookumchuck A. These changes are calendar date adjustments that were omitted in the filing.
&sqbul; As a result of annual, permit allocation formula adjustments, change the following permit levels to:

Quilomene A 74
Alkali A 74

Muzzleloader Deer Permit Hunts

&sqbul; Change the permits for Quilomene B from 10 to 11. This change is a result of annual permit allocation formula adjustments.
&sqbul; Change the permits for Desert D from 20 to 21. This change is a result of annual permit allocation formula adjustments. Adjust the calendar dates for Green Bluff, Mossyrock B, Stormking B, South Rainier B, Packwood B, Winston B, Yale B, Toutle B, Marble B, Lewis River B, Siouxon B, Wind River C, Grayback C, and North River B. These are calendar date adjustments that were omitted from the filing.
&sqbul; As a result of annual, permit allocation formula adjustments, change the following permit levels to:

Desert C 4
Alkali C 11

Archery Deer Permit Hunts

&sqbul; As a result of annual, permit allocation formula adjustments, change the following permit levels to:

Quilomene C 76
Alkali E 73

Special Modern Firearm Deer Permits for Hunters 65 or Older

&sqbul; Adjust the calendar dates for East Klickitat C, Stella B, Mossyrock C, Stormking C, South Rainier C, Packwood C, Winston C, Yale C, Toutle C, Marble C, Lewis River C, Washougal B, Siouxon C, Wind River D, West Klickitat C, Grayback D, Williams Creek, Copalis, and North River C. These changes are calendar date adjustments that were omitted in the filing.

Special Modern Firearm Deer Permits for Disabled Hunters

&sqbul; Change the dates for the Green River B hunt to Oct. 29-Nov. 4. This is a calendar shift adjustment and is consistent with the dates of access agreed upon with the land manager.

Youth Special Deer Permits

&sqbul; Adjust the calendar dates for East Klickitat E, Lincoln D, Stella D, Mossyrock E, Stormking E, South Rainier E, Packwood E, Winston E, Yale E, Toutle E, Marble E, Lewis River E, Washougal D, Siouxon E, Wind River F, West Klickitat E, Grayback F, Satsop B, and North River E. These are calendar date adjustments that were omitted from the filing.

Special Deer Permits - Second Deer Tag

&sqbul; Remove the Ten-Thirty hunt in Deer Areas 1030 and 1040. This hunt was not going to be effective in reducing the white-tailed deer population enough to accomplish the Washington State University cougar research and needs to be removed.
&sqbul; Under special deer permits - second deer tag, change Huckleberry B permit numbers from 100 to 300 permits. This corrects an omission in the initial filing.

Hunter Education Instructor Incentive Permits

&sqbul; Added "except GMU 157" to the Region One GMUs. This change was made to correct an error that was omitted from the filing.
