Coming up in George’s Outdoor News this week:
Today, a look back at many of the deer plans and recommendations from task forces and working groups.
Tomorrow (February 24), a report from the legislature where the IFW Committee hosts public hearings on four interesting bills: one on the impact of winter ticks on moose, another to allow hunting small game with a slingshot, one to allow hunters to wear pink instead of orange, and a fourth to modify fishing rules for Webster Stream.
Wednesday (February 25), a report from the legislature where 3 different committees will hear important bills on mining, new restrictions on signature gathering for ballot initiatives, and a transfer of public lands to the forestry division of the Department of Agriculture, Conservation, and Forestry. I’ll touch down at all three hearings and give you a report.
