From staff reports

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife is seeking applicants for its Game Management Advisory Council.

WDFW Director Kelly Susewind will appoint up to 20 new members to the council. The Game Management Advisory Council advises on issues including hunter-access opportunities, resource allocation, funding options and research projects, and makes Game Management Plan implementation recommendations, according to a news release.

New advisory council members serve one- to three-year-terms, with the first advisory committee meetings beginning in December 2019. The council holds a minimum of three one-day meetings each year. WDFW may call special meetings when special issues/topics arise. Upon request, WDFW can reimburse council members for travel expenses to attend meetings.

Applicants do not have to be a hunter or affiliated with an organized group to apply. However, WDFW is looking for members who value game species and hunting as a tool to fund and manage game populations.

Fill out the application to apply: https://wdfw.wa.gov/about/advisory/gmac and do so by 5 p.m., Aug. 15. Submit applications by email to heather.bonagofski@dfw.wa.gov or by mail to:

Anis Aoude, game division manager
