Don't get me wrong, I purchase a yearly $35 Discovery Pass and a $40 SnoPark pass that gets me nothing in return as far as snow cat access. I am willing to give the government even more if they would just make a class that we fit into and to give us a map with places we are welcome.

Yes, the outing in the 443 with Tracy was on the designated route given to us by the Ranger Station but once we got up there we found that most of the 'open' roads were gating for non-motorized hunting. I'd like to see the numbers on hunters in that area on foot or horseback.

we had the same issues. one large drainage that was used for all was gated and a sign cross county skiing with out any public input on it. I very seldom see cars parked at the gate . i'm beginning to think you need a club that may do some voluntary work to get noticed.

Rob/Jim, i had a long talk with a FS Rec Manager from another district in Centeral WA. She gave me some good insight, and i need to follow up on it. Basically she said a lot of the approval for our broader access is up to the state. Maybe i'm just being passed around from agency to agency but i'm going to give it a try.

Your point about needing a club or organization to represent us is 100% spot on. Only issue is that their are only about 12-24 of us in WA give or take a dozen........

That is not going to get us very far.

I'll be in touch with updates.

Slight cross thread if you don't mind. See todays thread on trying to get a list of WA state cat owners. Please respond to that thread or PM me please. See that thread for details.

Thanks!

I did finally get my cat titled. I found a number of for sale cats here on the forum and forwarded the info to the person who does our title work. The DOL office accepted that as proof of fair market value. Thanks to all who offered up advice. It was appreciated.

Now onto the question of where to operate them. I'll jump to the other thread.
