got back about a half hour ago. more of a open house. mingle around and wait until the bs stories stop so you can ask one of the guys in uniform a question that they can't answer or won't answer on the record. i filled out a couple suggestion papers and added them to the stack.

Ack,

Never been to one but that would have disappointed me that that is all it was. Glad I didn't waste my time driving almost an hr. My daughter had t ball sign up so that took precedence. Hope something good comes of the meetings though.

Went to District 1. My W.O. was there. Always good talkin with him. I talked to one of the heads and asked him why one of the regs is the way it is and not only his response but a couple of others that I talked to were the same. "Tradition", the Reg has been the way it is for so long that it hasn't changed. Well, I and a quite a few others feel it's time to make a change.

There was quite a big turn out and I got some eye opening percentages on some issues. Talked to the Fish Management Supervisor and believe I've gotten Hunter a boat ride along on some of their fish survey outings. I don't know who was more excited me or Hunter when I told him because the supervisor said I get to go to. :)

I just got back from District 4. Got to meet the new chief. Seems like a personable guy to me.

If you're looking for excitement at one of this meetings, don't bother. Years ago, these meeting were held "auditorium" style. People assembled in a chair filled room, and all comments, suggestions, etc. were taken verbally. It was a fiasco!!! You had to sit for hours while every Tom, Dick, and Harry made his view known on the state of deer hunting in Ohio. I remember waiting through hours of that, just to take my turn and go on record for the Ohio State Trappers Association. We only commented on trapping regulations, and we sent a representative to every district so we could get "on record". I can never remember a time when we were in disagreement, publically, with ODNR.

The current format is better. You can go there, and submit your comments in writing. That's WAAAY better than sitting around listening to what EVERYBODY else has to say. You can meet with ODNR personnel too and talk to them one on one. I used to plan to spend three or four hours at these things. This year I only stayed about an hour.

I was informed that I had just missed you when I arrived, Hal. I agree that the format is a good thing.

My best laid plans never seem to reach fulfilment now days.

Had plans to be at the district 3 meeting.

I wanted to get more information on the fall doe season, the 160, extended beaver season, and some other small interests.

I won't get my truck back until Tuesday or Wednesday.

Was there any news on the 160 and the doe season?

The 2 day muzzleloader for does only is on the proposal. Talked with one of the management supervisors. Very enlightening on what he had to say, to say the least.

When I get to one of the open houses, I try and find the biologists that are there.
Also the managers of the wildlife areas they can spare for the day.
It's good to get to know as many there as you can.
It helps when you have doubts or questions.

I was hoping for more than two days, but it's better than nothing.
It will take time to prove it's self, along with if it's going to work to their expectation's.

I must have just missed you Tim, I couldn't get out of the shop until almost 2, and by the time I got there it was pretty well cleared out. You are right about the guys wanting to tell story's, but it is way better then the old way that Hal was referring to.

the old way was terrible .

sounds like there was a real good turnout of trappers at these across the state , hopefully there concerns are listened too.

i've wanted an early statewide muzzle loader season for a long time . 2 days at the end of the special area early season , i'd rather have a week but its a place to start .
i'd like to see it be a true primitive weapons season though, with no in lines allowed . caplocks , flinters , but theres way to many in- line's out there , that isn't going to happen .

there is some interest in buckeye firearms proposals of legalizing handgun cartridges in rifles and black powder rifle cartridges , i thought the one managers ideas of starting with something along the lines of the original handgun laws were a good starting point , allow just a few of the more popular handgun cartridges , say .357 mag., .41 mag., .44 mag./spl., , .45 colt in rifles to see how it goes , then go from there.
he said they already didn't see much of a problem with black powder cartridge rifles but were kinda in the dark as to what calibers and cartridges .any of todays .50 cal. inline's is more powerful than any of the old black powder rilfe cartridges . indiana 's law on that is the same as there muzzle loader law , .38 cal and larger which would work well with ohio's current laws.

skippy, i want to use Atlatal's to hunt deer with . Missouri had a season this past november for them for the first time , 2 guys killed deer the first day with them.

Talk about primitive !!!!!!!!

LOL, Minker!
Would that be buck only? OR either or? Or doe only?

If I was in better health and somewhat younger, I'd try that !:)

i'm pretty sure both killed a buck , not sure what the reg.'s on the season entailed but i'd guess it was either sex or i should say whatever deer you can wind up getting close enough to spear.

thats pretty hardcore primitve , i bet it took alot of practice to get good enough .
