    Neighbor's property to the south and State land to the north. Occasionally there is some movement off the back of my land to the neighbor to the west but not much. Most trails are north south. I have 662' of road frontage on a north-south road and property is 2762 feet deep.

    Does that include the risk with APR’s ?

    The legislature got interupted by covid, the hunting issues arent gone, just delayed.

    Covid excuse is getting popular for many things being put on back burners. Well beyond hunting issues.
    Not that hunting issues are not important.
    More so if causing more harm than good.

    I don't know that the "risk" of APR's is gone. But I'm pretty sure the $1.00 fine legislation is dead in the water. We have significant challenges before the state which should be the priority.

    The self identified stewards of the resource own this nonsense. As guilty for their ignorance as they are their bliss.

    Sounds about right to me.

    Yeah. Question is, do we have the guts to reverse direction on some things, clarify some others, and flat out apologize for others? Or will pride get in the way? Man or Mouse?

    You can't solve a problem with the same level of thinking used to create it. Or something like that.

    Don't worry guys pretty soon everyone will be seeing what QDMA is doing with feeding and baiting in other states and how it's working to grow big bucks and they will want baiting back.

    True on several counts, you can only push so hard for so long. The APR test lobbying was a little much, fortunately it came back and bit them and the MDNR in the ***. And their still pushing it, despite the proven fact it is an increased risk.....so much for the health of the herd mantra.

    They need to quash the NW12 next. To prevent the spread of CWD.
