WAC 232-28-351 2006-2008 Deer general seasons and definitions.

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

     Under Early Archery Mule Deer:

• Delete GMU 382 from Sept. 1-30, 3 pt. min.; and Sept. 1-30, 3 pt. min. and antlerless. Return GMU 382 to its original position in Sept. 1-15, 3 pt. min.; and Sept. 16-30 3 pt. min. and antlerless. This adjustment corrects an error in the CR-102 filing. Region 3 GMUs were moved from antlerless opportunity to buck only opportunity in response to declining mule deer numbers and increased losses due to winter kill and possibly hair loss syndrome in the last couple of years. GMU 382 should not have been part of that move and is being returned to its original date and legal deer.
     Under Muzzleloader High Buck Hunts:

• Change language to include all of the Henry Jackson Wilderness Area. This adjustment corrects an error in the CR-102 filing. The entire Henry Jackson Wilderness Area should have been included in the High Buck Hunt for both modern firearm and muzzleloader. Muzzleloader was inadvertently left out. This adjustment corrects that mistake.
     Under Late Muzzleloader Deer, Western Washington Blacktail Deer:

• Delete GMUs 651 and 673 from any deer. Add GMUs 651 and 673 to Nov. 21-Dec. 6, 2007, any buck; add GMUs 651 and 673 to Nov. 19-Dec. 6, 2008, any buck; add GMUs 651 and 673 to Dec. 7-15, 2007, any deer; add GMUs 651 and 673 to Dec. 7-15, 2008, any deer. This adjustment accounts for new information made available after the filing of the CR-102. Preliminary harvest information was not available when the CR-102 was filed because the time period for reporting hunting activity runs until January 31. Upon receiving preliminary harvest information after the reporting deadline, analysis by Region 6 staff discovered a higher than desired harvest of antlerless deer in GMUs 651 and 673. This adjustment reduces the "any deer" harvest time period to the last week of the late season.

WAC 232-28-352 2006-2008 Elk general seasons and definitions.

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

     Under Late Archery Western Washington:

• Move GMU 648 from 3 pt. min. to 3 pt. min. or antlerless. This is an attempt to provide some antlerless harvest opportunity and provide harassment to move elk off of private farmland and onto adjacent timberland and Elk Areas.

WAC 232-12-181 Livestock grazing on department of fish and wildlife lands.

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

     Under subsection (1):

• Second sentence originally read: Except for temporary permits or permits that are being renewed or renegotiated with existing permittees, each grazing permit shall first be submitted to the commission, which may review the permit to ensure it conforms with commission policy. It now reads: Except for temporary permits or permits that are being renewed or renegotiated with existing permittees, grazing permits shall first be submitted to the commission, which may review the permit to ensure it conforms with commission policy. This was changed for clarification purposes only.
     Under subsection (3):

• The second sentence originally read: The director is authorized to reject any and all bids if it is determined to be in the best interest of the department to do so. It now reads: The director is authorized to reject any and all bids if it is determined to be in the best interest of the fish and wildlife to do so. This change has been made for clarification.
     Under subsection (5):

• Second sentence used to read: The director shall inspect the site of a grazing permit no less than two times each year. It now reads: The department shall inspect the site of a grazing permit no less than two times each year. It was changed to reflect that department staff and not the director would be inspecting grazing permits.
• Third sentence used to read: The director shall retain the right to alter provisions of the plan to reduce acreage available or the number of animals using the area when such change is, in the judgment of the director required to benefit... It now reads: The director shall retain the right to alter any provision of the plan as required to benefit... The original language said that only numbers of animals or acreage could be changed when in fact the department might change season of use or other parameters of the permit if need be.
