SENATOR RALPH SEEKINS  asked what happens if  he is photographing                                                               
a trophy  bull moose and  someone comes  along and shoots  it. He                                                               
asked,  "Wouldn't  the  hunter be  interfering  with  my  viewing                                                               
purpose at that point?"                                                                                                         
                                                                                                                                
MR. POUND replied  that the question of intent would  be asked at                                                               
that  time, but  he  also  thought that  taking  pictures in  the                                                               
middle of hunting season would be a good way to get shot.                                                                       
                                                                                                                                
3:41:11 PM                                                                                                                    
SENATOR BEN STEVENS arrived.                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR SEEKINS  asked if  this measure  would create  a conflict                                                               
between  the dueling  purposes of  hunting and  fishing. He  also                                                               
asked  which purpose  would prevail  if two  people were  equally                                                               
disturbing to each other.                                                                                                       
                                                                                                                                
MR. POUND  replied that  he thought it  possible that  the hunter                                                               
would prevail  in that instance,  since he has a  license stating                                                               
he can hunt at a specific time.                                                                                                 
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR SEEKINS said  he wanted to avoid conflicts  and he wanted                                                               
to know how intent could be established.                                                                                        
                                                                                                                                
MR. POUND replied that that language is currently in statute.                                                                   
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR SEEKINS remarked that  "reasonable actual attorneys fees"                                                               
are talked about in the bill.                                                                                                   
                                                                                                                                
MR. POUND  clarified that  language in the  bill breaks  down the                                                               
award according to  what the agreement is. It could  be as low as                                                               
10 percent.                                                                                                                     
                                                                                                                                
CHAIR  WAGONER  pointed  out  that  two people  could  get  in  a                                                               
conflict over shooting the same animal, also.                                                                                   
                                                                                                                                
3:47:10 PM                                                                                                                    
SENATOR SEEKINS  moved to pass  SCS CSHB 107(RES)  from committee                                                               
with attached  fiscal note and individual  recommendations. There                                                               
were no objections and it was so ordered.
