Master Hunter program frozen

The Master Hunter Permit Program administered by the Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife has stopped accepting new applications for membership until further notice.

The enrollment freeze is designed to give the department time to absorb an increase of nearly 30 percent in certified master hunters over the past four years and clearly defiine the program’s role, according to Sgt. Carl Klein, program manager.

The Fish & Wildlife Department often calls on master hunters to participate in hunts designed to remove problem animals that damage property or threaten public safety. To maintain their certification, master hunters are required to participate in volunteer projects, ranging from maintaining elk fences to restoring wildlife habitat.

Seahawks cut loose receiver Edwards

The Seattle Seahawks have cut wide receiver Braylon Edwards after a season during which he had little impact on the offense and placed starting left guard James Carpenter on the season-ending reserve/non-football illness list.

Seattle made the moves Tuesday afternoon. Edwards was waived with an injury distinction, but no specific injury was cited. The Seahawks now have just five healthy wide receivers.

Edwards had just eight catches for 74 yards and one touchdown in 10 games.

Carpenter returned from a serious knee injury last season and started seven games for the Seahawks at left guard. But he left early in Sunday’s win over Chicago after experiencing what Pete Carroll called a sharp pain in his surgically repaired knee.
