    Get with UWF or go to FL Sportsman to help get our 2 weeks back.

    Rich, It is already published in the regs...it's not coming back this season...we got hosed. We will need to make a big push to get them restored for the future.

    We should be calling for the removal of the refuge manager....

    Joe, it is crazy what the refuge folks do. Hopefully we can at least leave a mark.

    As a follow-up for others reading this... There was enough of a push on the USFWS SE Regional Director guy that the season and permit no's were restored at the 2016 level!

    They also promised stake-holder meetings to discuss "stuff".

    Rich...I have to say I'm shocked. I thought with it already published they would dig in their heels....I know that UW-F along with many members put out a bunch of e-mails and calls...I guess you just never really know how things will go with a bureaucracy.

    But, we will need to remain super vigilant...at least they tipped their hand and showed us the cards they want to play....
