From former IDNR Director Kyle Hupfer...

Discussion in 'Indiana Outdoor News' started by jbwhttail, Jun 5, 2007.

  1. I received this email notice from former IDNR Director Kyle Hupfer Today. As President of the IDHA I must state that we can not and will not support a single candidate or party for any position or elected office. Under our 501c3 status we are not allowed(IDHA) to lobby or endorse candidates for public office.

    We are allowed to present both positive and the negatives of politicians andlet our membership decide who is best for our interests.

    The IDHA presents the following letter from Kyle in hopes that those who support what the Governor has done for hunters and fishermen will attend this function and let the media, citizens of Indiana and our politicians know we are out here and want our voices heard.

    There will be no better forum to be seen and heard than this event, wear your camo and be seen....... Imagine the impact of 300 sportsmen in camo at this event anouncing his bid for four more years.........


    Kyle's email......


    All:

    I want to thank you for the support that you have shown Governor Daniels and
    the DNR over the past three years. Hunters, anglers, gun owners and outdoor
    enthusiasts from around the state have supported Governor Daniels as he has
    directed some of the most significant positive changes that have ever been
    witnessed by these groups in Indiana. The Governor has a big announcement
    on June 16th from 11:00am to 2:30pm at Hinkle Fieldhouse on the campus of
    Butler University. This is a FREE family friendly event that will feature
    in addition to the announcement, games, music and food. There will be
    something for everyone to enjoy.

    This is my personal request that you and any other hunter, angler, gun owner
    or outdoor enthusiast that you know attend this big event. Some of you have
    already agreed to come, and I appreciate that. I would ask that you send
    this email to all of your friends, members, hunting and fishing
    buddies--basically your entire email list--- and post it on any website that
    you control or visit. Please forward this invitation along.

    In less then three years, the Governor has seen to it that (i) the state
    acquire Goose Pond, (ii) hunting opportunities for all be expanded, but
    especially for the youth of the state with a free youth hunting weekend,
    youth deer season and youth turkey season, (iii) law abiding citizens be
    able to carry concealed with a permit on DNR properties and while hunting,
    (iv) homeowners enjoy extra protection while defending their homes through
    the passage of the castle doctrine, (v) the Atterbury range be completely
    rebuilt to provide vastly expanded shooting opportunities and (vi) our DNR
    properties be as clean and safe as any in the country. In addition he has
    fostered a more wildlife friendly forestry plan, developed and is
    implementing a statewide trails plan, expanded trail riding opportunities
    for horseback riders, balanced and strengthened the fish & wildlife fund and
    ensured general funding of the Heritage Trust for the first time in years.
    This list is still just the tip of the iceberg, but it shows that the
    hunters, anglers, gun owners and general outdoor enthusiasts of the state
    have no better friend then Governor Daniels.

    This is the ground floor of a potential second 4 years for the Governor. We
    want to ensure that our voices are heard along with all the other
    constituent groups that will be out in force on the 16th. This is our
    chance. To further highlight your support of all things outdoors, if you
    come on the 16th, please try to identify yourself with a CAMO hat, shirt,
    etc. Let's make it clear to Governor Daniels that we appreciate his efforts
    to improve the state for hunters, anglers, gun owners and outdoor
    enthusiasts and that we want these issues to remain in the forefront during
    his next term. Thank you in advance if you can attend this monumental
    event. If you have questions or want to let me know you plan to attend,
    feel free to email me at khupfer@hotmail.com. Looking forward to a sea of
    camo on the 16th.

    Kyle J. Hupfer

    Sorry, Mitch has hit me where it hurts, no way can i support his re-election.
     

  3. I just can't figure out why this is being made into a big event.
     
  4. Who needs an economy that provides jobs and doesn't hemorrage cash, yeah ditch mitch.
     
  5. BECAUSE OF A SCHEDULE CONFLICT, I WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ATTEND. HOWEVER I WILL STAND WITH HIM IN SPIRIT. IN MY OPINION MITCH, WHILE NOT PERFECT MITCH HAS BEEN GOOD FOR SPORTSMEN OF THIS STATE AND GOOD FOR THE FINANCIAL WELLBEING OF THIS STATE.

    MITCH HAS NOT HAD MUCH TO DO WITH JOBS LEAVING THE STATE, THEY WOULD HAVE LEFT WHETHER HE WAS IN OFFICE OR NOT, BUT I CAN SAY THAT HE HAS BEEN INSTRUMENTAL IN BRINGING NEW JOBS TO THE STATE, IE HONDA IN GREENSBURG.

    I DON`T AGREE WITH EVERYTHING MITCH IS FOR, BUT HIS GOOD OUTWEIGHS THE BAD, I.M.O.
     
  6. I'm with Birch on this one.

    The best part about Mitch ... DAY LIGHT SAVINGS TIME ... yea baby!:coolgleam:coolgleam:coolgleam

    All day kinder garden would be real cool too.
     
  7. ditch mitch, another term and he will have the rest of state sold off to some private companies.
     
  8. some people just don't get it.:banghead3
     
  9. Some of the citizens of this state don't agree with Mitch. Why? Because Mitch is a forward thinker and is willing to step out of the status quoa to make things happen and make things better. Indiana, traditionally, doesn't move on anything until everyone else has done it first. We cannot be a competitive state if we continue to let everyone else go first. I love the time change...more daylight to fish and hunt...who on here can argue with that? Let me here you now...4 MORE YEARS! 4 MORE YEARS! 4 MORE YEARS!
     
  10. Mitch actually put a good management team in the DNR. We've been awful lucky so far. Unless the Dems bring back John Goss I'm sticking with Mitch.

    Jack
     
  11. Amen
     
  12. Brother if you ever take a break from huggin trees I'd like to hug you for saying that!!!

    4 MORE YEARS!!! 4 MORE YEARS!!!
     
  13. Could not agree more with you tree. 4- more years and 100,000 new jobs.
     
  14. He's a puppet! Bottom line. Sorry, It's just the way that I feel. I agree that the state needs to be more progressive, but why do you think it will happen with him and another four years?
