Waterfowl Advisory Group The
Washington Waterfowl Advisory Group (WAG) was formed
by WDFW in early 2003 to increase citizen involvement
in the management of Washington’s waterfowl resources.
This group has 20 members from a broad representation
of waterfowl hunters throughout the state. Semiannual
meetings are scheduled to provide advice to the department
on a variety of topics, including planned expenditures
of state migratory bird stamp revenues, waterfowl
seasons, public access, and other topics.
