Director - Brad Wobbrock
Greetings To All:
First of all I want to thank Brian Clausen for a job well done on getting new banners made up for all districts to use at their events.
At the District 8 fall meeting at Cumberland’s, members requested to take a vote on non-resident trapping. A vote was taken and passed in favor of supporting non-resident trapping.
Bill and I took this information back to the board meeting in October.
It was stated at the October board meeting, that there one other district at their fall meeting had also voted with the same results - in favor of non-resident trapping.
Bill and I developed a proposal as follows:
1 - No tagged species including marten, fisher, otter and bobcat.
2 - Non-resident beaver season to close the end of February.
3 - Non-resident water season to open one week later than residents in each of the zones.
This proposal will go out to each district and be voted on. Once there is a vote from each district, it will then be brought back to the board. My understanding of how it would work - if in favor - it will at that time be voted on at one of or general membership meetings. Any questions feel free to contact Bill or myself.
Reminder that our Winter General Member Meeting in Askov is January 3, 2015 at the East Central School in Askov.
The Legal Defense Banquet will be Saturday, January 3rd. Doors open at 4:30 pm.
As always, please look at the president's report for new business and old business that was discussed at the meeting and any other additional pertinent information.
