2010 hunting reports filed, bring on 2011

HUNTING -- I just filed the last of my 2010 online hunting reports. 

If you hunt in Washington or Idaho, the reports are mandatory. It will save you grief to do it before the end of the year. You'll avoid delays and hassles when you go in to buy a hunting license and tags next year. 

Moreover, Filing the reports helps wildlife managers assess and manage game populations.

Hunters are among the most regulated outdoor sportsmen. And for the most part, they understand why it has to be that way.
