Thats the word Hawkeye! Thats the word!Is there any reason to think that it might be open to fishing but not hunting?Wouldn't the safety concerns be the same whether one is carrying a rifle or a rod?I've "heard" rumors that the "REAL" commander wears a skirt and carries a PETA card,ie: the BC's wife?
The Outfitters Association is pissed to say the least. I heard this was going to happen (about a month ago). The person telling me said it was because the BC wanted to use the base for training and not have to appeal to the general public when it comes to environmental issues (watercourses, etc). He wanted to train the soldiers for combat and not have to worry about killings some fish, frogs, trees, etc.There is alot of training going on. Its no diff than any other year. The areas used for training only take up a small part of a very large training area. The base Com just doesnt want hunters here. He tried the same last year but it looks like he got his way this time
