While we're waiting...

Of course, we're all waiting to learn the outcome of the waterfowl opener and presevation strategy.

While they are still sorting out the mess, now would be a great time to send another letter to Hoeven and Hildebrand - they are the executives who will be making the executive decision. The legislative issue is later, but will be greatly affected by wat happens now. Word is the meetings will be next week, so now is a perfect time!

Remember that these folks don't get a lot of letters from us - the quiet majority. Keep it short and simple (only a sentence or two or three):

What you want:
- preserve quality hunting in the state and stop commercialization of ND hunting - stewardship, not proprietorship.

What he needs to do:
- listen to the biologists at ND G&F
- limit non-resident hunters according to plans the biologists favor
- don't put a small number of financial interests before the resource and all the citizens of the state.

Send it by mail, or by email. You know they are hearing from those with a commercial interest constantly. You, as typical resident, should stand out. It is worth the small effort.

Great, I sent paper, but a buddy sent emails and got prompt replies.
Did you get the same?

I appreciate your valuable input. The State Game & Fish Department is compiling input from our last meetings and we will be moving forward soon. We are working to find a balance for this year and the Legislative Branch will be working on these issues also in the next session.

Thanks again for your input.
