so guys, you know how everyone said this hunting would never come about? Has anyone ever stopped to email the people responsible or try to get a change to happen? My guess would be no becuase I took the time to write a professional email to each individual starting at the city level all the way to the top, one by one and each letter personalized, not a cookie cutter email. I used valid points and voiced my concern even after i got the feeling from the posts it was a waste of time.
Welllllll........ today I received a call from our district wildlife biologist and guess what i lit a fire under someone. He received a call from the Director of DGIF who had my letter passed to him by our Lt Governor directly. Progress for this public access is being made and I will be a direct constituent for the program and working closely and attending meetings in regards to the matter in upcoming months with various officials. It will not happen overnight but i think it is going to happen. When you use key terms like "loss of potential revenue" or "leaving money on the table" people, politicians especially respond.
In the next month i am going to work on forming a non-profit called "waterfowler for Public Access" or something along those lines. I would love to get as many people involved as I (we) will be a voice for the public hunter.
I guess the moral is we as hunters need to get our voice out there and take the intiative send emails, attend meetings and try to get changes made. Sometimes the fight may already be playing out behind the scenes and us as citizens are the little xtra push or voice needed to tip that scale.. Lets make this happen guys.
