    Twi different WMA's have only one burn each- there are usually more. Is the wetter than normal winter a big factor? Kind of idisappointing situation. Overgrowth hinders opps- any thought? Wish I could clear some areas myself...

    FWC has a lot of hoops to jump thru to burn....Other agencies have a say...

    Actually they have a regularized rotating burn schedule for different sectors of the WMA's. I have noticed this with some regularity until this spring.

    Having a schedule...and getting the required sign offs are two different things.
    If you have questions...speak with the area Biologist and he can help.

    Agreed. Will try and get some feedback if I see a biologist or FWC officer.

    Holeyland and Rotenberger needs to burn again. Too thick to get to the ducks without Airboat or full track.
