I hope you enjoyed this year’s Banquet speaker, Steve Flores, as much as I did.  It was great to focus on our home state and hunting OUR deer, if just for one year.  Please feel free to call or email me with your thoughts on our banquet weekend.  After all, it’s for YOU that we do what we do… what do you like?  What could we do better?  And again, let me say a very big THANK YOU to all of our members, Banquet attendees and donors.  Without your generosity, without you giving your time, your arts, and your money we couldn’t do what we do.

To those of you that wrote, called and emailed your legislators in favor of the Sunday Hunting initiative: thank you!  West Virginians now have the personal choice of whether or not to hunt on private land on Sundays statewide.  It was absolutely inconceivable to me that in 2017 you could buy a beer, go fishing, go out to dinner, buy groceries, or participate in any other LEGAL activity on a Sunday, except go hunting.  I know many a hunter that will now spend Sunday mornings in the pew and Sunday afternoons in the treestand.
