Summary Statement:

 This program began with the pilot focus of opening and retaining hunting access to private timberlands in WDFW Regions 5 & 6 with the goal of statewide duplication into areas of need.This adaptable program can be utilized to provide public access for hunting & fishing seasons, spring bear hunting, antler collecting, etc...

Hunting is a key element of the WDFW Elk management plan; this program assists hunters and the WDFW mission of creating healthy and sustainable wildlife populations.

As most pilot programs evolve, Property Watch has developed into 3-areas of focus; (1) Land Access, (2) Assisting with WDFW conservation closures and (3) Assisting the WDFW public access site program.
