Yes, quite a bit of public, and timber company land. Some fees on timber company, and some road closures on the public ground. Roughly 3 main areas coastal, Cascades, and Eastern WA.. These are broken into smaller units, with season dates August 1-November 15, a couple units open September 1, spring tags on a drawing. Non resident bear looks like $222, they sell licenses in packages so anything else drives the price up. Eastern WA. is 1 bear , all I know of the 2 bear areas is it will cost you another $222 for another tag, NR bear tag doesn't appear to be good for anything else.
I only have 2012 regs, and they indicate the 2nd bear tag $222, has it changed this year? Or am I missing it elsewhere? I checked your link, interesting they are calling as well, any idea how successful they are with that?
