I know I posted this in the general hunting forums but this is important for ALL sports people.

Just a heads up the elections for the conservation congress are coming up. I just saw a post from a young lady named Sara Lou on Facebook's riverwest page saying she is running for a seat. She is anti hunting and only worried about certain environmental issues, she completely ignorant of the true purpose of the congress. Her name will be on the ballot at West Allis Central high school April 10th at 6:30pm. I will try to show up to vote against her, I'm giving the true sports people of Wisconsin a heads up to keep ignorant environmentalists off the congress.

Fair enough boB.  But if you had peeked a little longer, you may have noticed his job title is State Geologist, not Poet Laureate.  So it's not completely touchy-feely.

Those studies scientific or more word of mouth.. took a peek at one of manni's, the comment  , paraphrased,  went something like  " ...and the river never went dry before...as far as anyone knows..", not sure that qualifies as a scientific fact

That's all well and good but said studies were done and peer reviewed since last year when this similar legislation failed.

This is just another case of donors being rewarded by short-sighted and foolish lawmakers. The damage will only get worse before the upcoming studies not-so-surprisingly will show things the growers don't want us to see.

Sad.

Everyone except key members of the legislature recognize that high capcity wells are bad news for central sands streams, and fish. 

This is a big deal for fisherman. This could be a win win if the DNR has periodic review, and cumulative impact study authority. 

Fishermen, and farmers can get along just fine if we work together for all our interests.

So I may get booted for this, but here goes.........

The high capacity well vote is tonight.  The Little Plover River was once a Class I trout stream, and the entire Central Sands is in jeopardy.  Of course, the problem is bigger than that and certainly not limited to one region.

Sara Lou was on the radio again, you can hear her commentary, and opinions at the following link:

http://www.riverwestradio.com/show/broadcast/

Saras statements about the Conservation Congress, and her objectives begin at minute 1120, they get interesting at minute mark 1348, and run through minute mark 2900. Sandhill Crane guys might want to take interest in the comments following minute mark 2415.

Show up to vote, or this could be your future.

Sara Lou ran last year, andonly lost because the crowd was hunter strong. Sara has ran before, she will run again. She is building support. Hunters, anglers, trappers, and shooters show up, or Sara is your future.

650,000 hunters, more fisherman than that, 4000 - 7000 people attend the meeting, sad, so very sad.
