OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — The Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission is scheduled to meet this week in Olympia to discuss the upcoming hunting season.

The commission will be taking public comment on proposed changes in rules for deer, elk, bear, cougar and other game species on Friday and Saturday in the Natural Resources Building in Olympia.

Most of the proposed changes were discussed during the commission's April meeting. However, two proposals are up for reconsideration. One relates to cougar-hunting seasons and the other to the use of bait when hunting deer and elk.

The commission will also review the protected status of brown pelicans.
