The republican support for hunting and the environmnent stops at insuring that everyone has a gun or a dozen. They should never be in a position of writing legislation that affects the future of our environment. Complete and utter failures and if this session doesn't prove that to the most die hard republican voter I don't know what will.

What a horrible bill ! I think I'll write the gov's office now and urge him to veto it, which it sounds like he will, but he needs to hear from hunters and anglers on this. I already emailed against the land exchange, weakening of water standards, and the weakening of standards for silica sand mining which it doesn't appear this talks about.

Everything seems to stop in House, because of poor majority leadership. All McNamera, he who can't shoot straight, wants to do is micro-manage the deer herd and loosen pollution regulations. No action of significance on AIS and funding staff at DNR to do their job. Outdoor writers need to focus on this lack of vision and failure to lead so voters have info in the fall. Anderson, Schara....where are you ? Minnesota is at outdoor recreation crossroads....and that does mean JOBS!

If the DNR needs more money, why is Ingebrigtsen increasing some license fees and slashing others?

He's increasing fees because he thinks we will notice and he's slashing others because he thinks we won't.

We are over licensed, over permitted, over taxed, over regulated and have too many laws. Is there really a public funded gun range?

Tomorrow will probably be the test whether the republicans really do support hunting or if they think as Rep Tony Cornish said we should "just accept" our dogs being killed by trappers setting body grip traps on the ground instead of taking a few more minutes and setting them off the ground where they will catch just as many fisher, marten and coon. McNamara showed that he doesn't support hunting so now we'll see if Ingebritsen and Carlson do or not. Pay attention to the body grip trap vote on SF 1830 to see if your senator supports hunting.
