I kind of feel bad / guilty because I just let my membership go to seed. I think it was more of a Southern Idaho thing and it frankly is a shame that it never took off in the Panhandle. I think the idea of having an advocacy group such as IWA to develop a relationship with Fish and Game and be a voice for all of us had great potential.
You guys may view the board and the goings-on as a small group of people who got too clubby within themselves, but I didn't see waterfowl hunters swelling the membership rolls or becoming active in the issues for which IWA fought the good fight. In the end, as I viewed it from the outside, a few guys were spending a lot of time to fight battles on our behalf and then getting publicly shelled in the blogosphere. If the group is fizzling it is probably because these few are simply tired of tilting at windmills with no reinforcements to back them up.

I'm glad somebody is working over there.... I'm a DU lifer... and us carp guys are now partnered with them for a couple events, you might try that with the IWA, oh another grand idea that should be suggested.... Or maybe a sign up page at the Cabelas stores in Idaho... But that would take some volunteers.... Which wouldn't be that hard if you could get 4 guys on 2 hr shifts... I'm not trying too bad mouth the IWA, just saying my experience back in 05'ish...
