On Monday December 4 2006 I will have lunch with the new IDNR Director Rob Carter. I was asked today on what "projects" we could work together on and what concerns we had. "We" as in the IDHA (Indiana Deer Hunters Association), The IDHA is proud of its' record of representing the "deer hunters" of Indiana and as such I would welcome all members of this site's comments. First and foremost on the IDHA agenda will be the purchase of the Minnehaha property that is for sale and could be lost to sportsmen if not purchased By the State. The continued commitment to land purchase for hunting and fishing is critical. I want suggestions on other ideas or changes we would like to see. This IS NOT a debate topic, throw out the ideas, if you agree with a point say it again. You don't agree silence is golden...........lol. I will make a list of points to be made in the meeting and will take notes during the meeting and do a summary to post here Monday evening. New Director and we start at "ground zero", we begin a new relationship and hopefully can work together as we have in the past. I asked a very important question of Rob today........what are your political aspirations? He said "none". We start anew............ I have posted this also on HH.com the IDHA site, I am certain that the IBA (Indiana Bowhunters Association) is doing the same thing on their site. Three outa four aint bad............lol.
