Thanks for the information

Thanks for the information.  It's nice to hear about these meetings BEFORE they happen insytead of reading about them in the newspaper the day AFTER they happen!

Hey, there's a guy who now

Hey, there's a guy who now lives in California who might be interested in this!

I agree, Mike - sometimes they are a little slow in getting this kind of information out to the public. I have found that it really depends on what newspaper you read, though. In most states, there is an Outdoor Newspaper that you can subscribe to that will keep you informed well ahead of the game.

Try doing a search for the name of your state plus "Outdoor news" and see if they have one where you live. Here in Michigan, it's Michigan Outdoor News. Lots of good articles on fish and game, plus public meetings, notices from your local conservation clubs and so forth. Also news from nearby states as well as those across the nation.

Would that be me??? Yeah, I

Would that be me??? Wink

Yeah, I am watching these meeting with great interest.

I think one of the biggest things now is that this winter has been BRUTAL!

My Mom sent me some photos of my Dad cleaning off her car and shoveling the driveway today.  Unbelievable!  They are supposed to get 2+ feet from this storm, after having 3 or 4 other 2 foot storms already this winter.

Hope the deer survive in decent numbers.  I am already planning my trip back this fall, so there has to at least be one left for me. lol
