Fellow Hunters, Fishers, & Recreationists,

This Blue Ribbon Task Force on Parks and Recreation provides an opportunity for hunters, fishers, and other recreationists to be heard.
With your help, it's important that we (hunters, fishers, and other recreationists) provide insight and fresh new ideas to improve opportunities for hunters, fishers, other recreationists, and to help create recreational jobs that will benefit local economies. It's my hope to help gather as much input and garner as much involvement as possible to help perpetuate our outdoor heritage, so please be as involved as you can.

Thanks,
Dale

Agreed, hunters really need to take a minute and express their concerns. I would like to see some hunters as the top participants by posting often. :tup:

It was painfully obvious that Hunters and Fishermen were left out of the Blue Ribbon Charter.   It is imparative that our voice is heard.

It's imperative that hunters and any other recreational groups post their thoughts if they want to be included in whatever action results from this task force. Generally speaking, "The squeaky gets the grease!"

Sign up and participate often, visit the site every day and add comments, add stars to other comments you like, and post new topics and any solutions that come to mind.

THANKS FOR YOUR INVOLVEMENT  :hello:
