Thank you for chiming in, I love the fact you guys/HHC pac are so successful fighting anti hunting Legislation.

Does WWC have any plans to try and address the composition of the WDFW commission?  I joined WWC last year when they sued Lorna Smith and the Governor. I know the wheels of justice move slowly in the court system, but to me the anti consumptive commission members is an immediate threat.

Yes we are working on some cool things regaurding the composition of the comission.

Any plans to educate public in someway of the impending push to Non consumption by Game Commission? If you could get the fisherman on board ,because they will be next, that would be a lot more clout.

 :dunno:

In the past we have had a presence at the State Fair to expose the non hunting public to sportsmen and management of ALL species. Unfortunately our pool of volunteers for this has shrunk and they extended how long the fair is. Reaching the non hunting public is one of the most important things that can be done.  We need an ARMY of volunteers to cover the time of Aug 30 to Sept 22nd. If you are a member check your emails because in order for us to do this we need robust commitment. Often times we have been set up next to the archery event for kids creating ample opportunity to talk about hunting and management.

We were not at the sportsmen show this year. Sadly or lead organizer had his house catch fire and burnt up his office and Trophy room that provided many of the mounts and display items we use for events.

We can always use your money but your time is more valuable!

I belong to WWC and give money to the HHC PAC. I have been fortunate to have several talks with different  BOD members. Most of which represent different local sportsmen organzations.
In archery we have something like the way of the superior man. When the archer misses the center of the target, he turns round and seeks for the cause of his failure in himself.

The achievements of an organization are the results of the combined effort of each individual.
People who work together will win, whether it be against complex football defenses, or the problems of modern society.
Individual commitment to a group effort - that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work.

Unfortunately, we don't have any rights to hunt in this State. If we had rights, we wouldn't be continually losing them.

Not so sure about that. Look at firearms rights in WA, been losing any of those lately?
