All Other Big Game / Washington Bill Establishes Pilot Cougar Hunt with Dogs
« Last post by Michael on February 04, 2020, 03:11:08 PM »

Legislation introduced in Washington by State Senator Timmy Sheldon would establish a 5-year pilot program allowing hunters to use dogs for cougar hunting. The pilot would then be used to determine the effectiveness and need for such a program moving forward. Senate Bill 5100 is awaiting a hearing in the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Water, Natural Resources and Parks.

Take Action Today! Washington sportsmen should call their state senator and ask them to vote YES on SB 5100. Sportsmen can contact their legislators by using the Sportsmen’s Alliance Legislative Action Center Directory.

Animal-rights groups bankrolled a ballot issue in 1996 that banned using dogs to hunt cougars. However, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife is still able to use them to track individual problem mountain lions. Under Washington Senate Bill 5100, hunters would again be allowed to use dogs to hunt cougars in certain game management units in Ferry, Stevens, Pend Oreille, Chelan, Okanogan, Mason and Klickitat counties. The majority of the counties included have prime cougar habitat and a higher population of the big cats.

“The use of well-trained dogs to track and harvest cougars is an way to control those species that have no natural predators, which the state has been doing at great cost to taxpayers for years,” said Jacob Hupp associate director of state services at the Sportsmen’s Alliance. “This pilot program is a positive step toward a broader understanding of why predator control is necessary and how hunting dogs can be used to greater protect Washington’s citizens and its natural resources.”

Trump Administration Publishes Historic Rulemaking to Modernize America’s Firearm Export Regime

On Jan. 23, the Trump administration published rules that will be a boon to the United States firearms industry and all who utilize its products. The new regulations will become effective March 9, 2020.

The rules update America’s regulatory regime for the export of firearms, as well as related parts, components, and accessories. They are the result of an intensive, years-long interagency review process, as well as consideration of thousands of public comments.

No more will small, non-exporting businesses – including gunsmiths – be caught up in an expansive regulatory scheme for manufacturers of “munitions” and their parts that requires a $2,250 annual registration fee with U.S. State Department.

And Americans temporarily traveling overseas with their own guns and ammunition won’t have to register them in a government database or deal with the complexities of completing lengthy forms in commercial exporting software.
Photography / February P.O.M. Contest
« Last post by Michael on February 01, 2020, 10:53:20 AM »
This month the Theme is Open. Any picture can be entered...
1. Pictures can be shot anywhere, as long as they are shot by you.
2. ONE picture with a maximum length on the long side of the photo must be no more than 800 pixels.(If either side of your image is larger than 800 resolution it must be re-sized to comply.)
3. If you win one month, you are out the next.
4. Anyone can submit images including moderators.  This is because the winner will be chosen by the site on an anonymous poll at the end of the month.
5. Winners will have their picture put on the front page of the site.
6. No artistic creations are allowed.  In general, if you are taking something out of the photo it's ok but if you are adding something to an image or changing the original intent of your image and subject it isn't allowed.  For example, adding in more antler on a deer, cloning in more birds, or adding in rain/snow is no longer allowed. However, if you take the color out and make it black and white, clone out a barb wire fence that was distracting, or sharpen an image that is OK.  The intent of this contest is for natural captures only although other artistic creations can be posted in the photo section.  HDR is allowed.  This is a subjective area to judge and we will have to judge if you have gone too far in post process.
7. Theme: Open
8. If you accidentally enter two Images the last one that you submitted will be entered in the Contest.
9. Images will be accepted for the contest until the Poll for that month is put up.
