OLYMPIA- The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) is looking to add 20 new members to Game Management Advisory Council and are currently accepting applications. The Game Management Advisory Council advises on a myriad of issues. Those issues include, hunter-access opportunities, resource allocation, funding options, research projects, and they make Game Management Plan implementation recommendations.
New members will be expected to serve for one-to-three years with the first meeting coming in December of this year. Members of the council meet at least three times every year, but special councils may be called, which would increase the total. Special councils are only called in cases of special issues/topic arising.
For those concerned with the cost of travel, the WDFW can reimburse travel expenses, upon request.
The application is open to anyone who desires to be part of the council. Applicants don’t need to be affiliated with a group, or even be a hunter for that matter, to apply. Although, they are looking for applicants who value game species and hunting as a tool to fund and manage game population.
Fill out the application to apply, by 5 p.m., Aug. 15. Submit applications by email to email@example.com or by mail to:
Anis Aoude, game division manager
