Speaking of Voting for Constitution Ammendment #1. Many of us have been DU, or Delta Waterfowl members in the past and/or currently. That is a good thing. They do great work in the most vital areas of waterfowl habitat. But members and Chapters usually don't have much say in what areas get attention. I have looked closely at DU, Delta Waterfowl, and Waterfowl USA and I have come to the conclusion based on testimonies and bylaws that Waterfowl USA allows their chapters to retain more proceeds for local projects, and overall at a chapter level they're credited with more state law changes in our favor. Plus they are headquartered in our own Palmetto State. Again don't get me wrong DU and Delta are great organizations and I recommend being members of all of them. But to make a differnce in our local area for waterfowl management and preserving any important migration resources, I think Waterfowl USA is the way to go.
Anyone interested in a discussion of starting a Waterfowl USA Chapter in the Upstate please send me a PM.
Hope to hear from you.
