Director - Buzz Neprud
Greetings District 4,
The fur season is over and even though the numbers were great, the prices were not. I am already getting calls for control work. On a side note, thanks goes out to all of you that responded to my calls to help individuals in our District where there were problems. Ninety per cent of them call me back and tell me how professional you were and what a good job you did. Thank you so much.
We had our spring meeting at the Paige Town Hall with around thirty people attending. We talked about the non-resident proposal. It was passed by the Board 7-2 with District 4 and one other voting against. It will be brought to the membership for vote at our winter meeting.
It was suggested that we do not inform the membership fast enough for some issues. Steve Pahlen District 2 member and Jon Longfellow District 6 Director are going to try to bring a plan to the board for approval.
The Anti’s are at it again. They are suing Maine and Federal Fish & Game over Lynx. We voted as a board to intervene if necessary.
If anyone would like to help work the MEA convention October 15th, please give me a call. Summer convention was discussed, and is being held August 14-16 in Bemidji. Our duties are booth on Friday from 8:00am-11:00am, ball toss on Friday from 1:30-3:00pm and front gate on Saturday from 7:00-11:00am. If you can help it would be great. See you there.
Many thanks goes out to Tina Jonas for providing snacks for meeting, and for raffle prizes donated by McKenze Stellmach, Gerald Stellmach, Dennis Sowada, Tim Bauer and Lloyd Baakkonen. Lloyd also donated a red fox for the tanned fur project.
Other upcoming events include the Lake Shore Rod and Gun Club Youth Day on June 6th. If anyone needs release kits, let me or Tom know and we will get them to you.
Till next time,
