Do You Hunt on a NWR?

The USFWS is proposing expanding hunting opportunities on a bunch of NW refuges throughout the country IF they get enough positive comments.

http://goodhunt.blogs.theledger.com/...st-marks-nwrs/

The anti's will be generating objections as they always do. Help yourself out and fill out a comment in favor of hunting and fishing expansions at:

http://www.regulations.gov/#!docketD...NWRS-2015-0029

When I commented yesterday, there were only 2 favorable comments (mine included). This is part of the first comment made by an anti: "THIS AGENCY CONTINUES ON EXPANDING HUNTING AND TRAPPING AND KILLING TO ALL NWR WHICH ARE MISNAMED REFUGES. THEY ARE ANYTHING BUT REFUGES WHEN SO MANY ANIMAL SPECIES ARE BRUTALLY TORTURED, WOUNDED AND KILLED IN THESE NATIONAL SITES. THIS AGENCY NEGLECTS THE PUBLIC TRUST WILDLIFE PROTECTION ACT ENTIRELY AND IGNORES THAT LAW, JUST LIKE OBAMA IGNORING IMMIGRATION LAWS. THIS AGENCY IGNORES LAWS TOO.L THIS AGENCY BLACBALLS ALL ANIMAL PROTECTION GROUPS. IT NEVER OUTREACHES TO ANY OF THEM."

The deadline for comments is July 13, 2015.

Nothing in Texas, but there are refuges here open to waterfowl and I've taken advantage of 'em in the past.

I bow hunted Aransas refuge in 1974 before the thermocell was invented. I think I lost 2 quarts of blood in 2 days. You have to wear a mask to keep from breathing the little toots. Hard to bow hunt when you're constantly slapping yourself.

Then hit the link and tell them so. It may lead to more and better hunts for you in the future.

Thanks for the link. I will send a positive note in favor of expanded hunting regulations into these areas.
