    Dear Waterfowl Enthusiast,

    About a month ago I sent a message seeking applicants for a Waterfowl Quota Permitting Technical Assistance Group (WPTAG) to discuss possible modifications to online and check station issuance of waterfowl quota permits with the goal of streamlining the online process for permit issuance and develop consistent procedures among the waterfowl quota areas in respect to issuing permits. I received nearly 40 applications from individuals interested in serving on the WPTAG and the FWC Issue Team reviewed all the applicants and made selections.

    The WPTAG is comprised of individuals representing hunters’ interests for TM Goodwin, Ocklawaha Prairie, Stormwater Treatment Areas and Guana River. We also chose two At-Large members to represent individuals who may not identify with any particular hunting advocacy group or as a “regular” at the hunt areas but may wish to contribute to the discussion.

    The following individuals were selected to serve on the WPTAG:

    Guana River WMA

    Ashby Underhill Ashby_Underhill@yahoo.com

    Alex Limbaugh alexlimbaugh@bellsouth.net

    Ocklawaha Prairie PSGHA

    Steve Pasteur Pasteur55@outlook.com

    Brett Howard Bowhunt352@gmail.com

    TM Goodwin WMA

    David DeBerard DavidDeBerard@gmail.com

    Joe Richter, Sr. duckmanjr@comcast.net

    Stormwater Treatment Areas

    Newton Cook Newtoncook@bellsouth.net

    John Monti FFJM@aol.com

    At-large Member

    Jeff Kraynik captjeff@cfl.rr.com

    Ron Sanders ron.sanders52@outlook.com

    In addition to these applicants, FWC invited Jerry Krenz with South Florida Water Management District, Brian Emanuel with St Johns River Water Management District, and Dan Daniels with United Waterfowlers-Florida to participate. These individuals will collect ideas and feedback from hunters and meet on Dec 10 in Daytona Beach, January 14 in Melbourne Beach, and February 18 in West Palm Beach to present these ideas and develop a collective recommendation to the FWC Issue Team for all aspects of issuing waterfowl quota permits.

    The WPTAG needs everyone who uses the waterfowl quota hunt areas to share their experiences, concerns, ideas for improvement, and ideas for what is working well. You can provide your feedback to any of the WPTAG members or you can send them to ducks@MyFWC.com. As always, I am happy to chat with anyone about anything waterfowl or small game (850-488-5878).
