    Theres literally hundreds of anti hunting bills comming up.There all listed in the Bangor Dailey News in or around the classifieds when there comming up.The coyotes are a big issue comming up on the 6th of April.All about every aspect of the sport.There not going to stop anytime soon.All sportsmen need to really step up and start taken time to go to these public hearings and get involved.When it's to late, it's all over.As you know they schedual them during the week because they know we're all working.Everytime I go down it's the same few that go.Let me say we know who we are and the rest will have no say in the matter if they dont fight for our cause.Even if you dont want to speak theres power in numbers.When we out number the antis everytime theres a hearing it helps alot.Our sport of hunting with hounds is dwindeling,we need to step up and support our sport,and everthing else that pertains to it.Lots of folks spend countless hours on this board talking and posting,None of thats going to matter if they win.Please I urge all of you guys on here to start showing up.Dont exspect the other guy to take care of it for ya.Thanks for letting me vent!

    I went to the work sesson about 'written permission' for bear 'cat and coyote hunters with dogs Monday.
    I got a chance to talk with Colonel Wilkenson for a few minutes and got good feedback. The warden service can be the hound hunters greatest ally or it's worst enemy and Joel gave hound hunters a good scorecard in coyote controll at this workshop.
    I also talked to George Smith and Board member Ralph Sardie with good feedback from both.
    I did get the feeling that if houndmen in the area where the tresspassing complaints are coming from don't use their heads that the committee may end running similar to the restricted bear training area in Washington County.
