For those of you living in AZ, I don't know about you, but I'm pretty miffed that I did not get drawn for ANYTHING that I put in for this year. Not even muzzleloader. If you are living in AZ and you are as pissed off as I am about the recent 9th Circuit Court ruling against Arizona Game and Fish, please contact John McCain and John Kyle. Info and links are below....

 

As a response to a recent decision by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, Senate Bill 2978 has been introduced by Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada. This bill would allow states, rather than the courts, to regulate hunting and fishing.

The Arizona Game and Fish Department’s ability to regulate hunting and fishing, and maintain resident advantage was recently abridged by the unprecedented decision of the 9th Circuit in Montoya v. Shroufe. The department’s biggest asset in accomplishing its mission is the public support that engaged residents are uniquely positioned to provide. While the department welcomes nonresident hunters, maintaining resident hunting opportunities is one of the best ways to support conservation.

If you have an opinion regarding this legislation, please contact your Arizona senators.

We appreciate your continued support of the department’s wildlife conservation efforts.

PS, this goes for other states too, but I don't have your senator links. Please support this bill to keep resident's advantage. Thanks!
