  6. The Ozark Heritage Project is sponsoring a boat riding and fish gigging opportunity beginning at 1:00 this Saturday afternoon at the Pulltite Campground in north Shannon County. The campground is located off Highway 19 south, on Route EE to the Current River. The boat riding and fish gigging opportunity will be held at the river access. The boat rides will be free and there will be refreshments available including water, soda, hot dogs, and then fried yellow suckers and potatoes. The National Park Service is proposing Alternative B for the new Draft General Management Plan for the Ozark National Scenic Riverways, and part of the new restrictions include a year round ban on outboard motors on upper Current River and upper Jacks Fork. The boats that will be made available to all guests are the very ones they wish to exclude. The Ozark Heritage Project is presenting this opportunity so that more people can make informed decisions as to their comments on the new proposals. There will be no charge, but if anyone actually wants to gig that evening, they must have a valid Missouri Fishing License. People not wishing to actually take fish can still ride along and witness the sport firsthand. Life jackets will be provided. All of the activities will conclude around 9:00 PM. If you have any questions or want more information about the boat rides or gigging, contact Rick Mansfield at 573-663-2269, or send him an e-mail at emansfield2004@yahoo.com. Reservations are NOT necessary, but some idea of the number participating will better ensure their ability to have enough boats and food.
  7. Hats Off to Phil Robertson

    I hesitate to comment on this Duck dynasty thing as folks may want my head on a platter. I say to the left, dont get too cocky on this firing of Mr Roberson. Tolerance goes both ways. Who knows what will pop up from this open ended controversy. This could open the backdoor to the thought police.
  8. More wasted $ by MDC

    The eastern elk was the species that lived here before they were hunted into extinctiion. The Rockey mountain elk were never here, except on game ranches.
  9. More wasted $ by MDC

  10. More wasted $ by MDC

    http://www.bizjournals.com/stlouis/morning_call/2013/12/missouri-department-of-conservation.htmlHere we go again...More wasted money on a species that is neither endanger nor native.There are farms all over this country where an elk can be bought for $3000.00 and less.Oh well it\'s only money, not like we have any endangered species in MO. At least one or 2 folks will get to plug one of these when the win the permit lottery...
  11. I have a family problem. Would like your input.

    Another thing to consider if you bring in the law is asset forfeiture. The law will not be your friend but will be you reletives enemy. If they decide to take his property you probably will have to spend lots of cash to keep yours.

  13. Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show - Update - January 24, 2013Reed Exhibitions has decided to postpone, for now, the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show given the controversy surrounding its decision to limit the sale or display of modern sporting rifles (also called ARs) at the event. The show was scheduled to take place February 2-10 in Harrisburg, PA.“Our original decision not to include certain products in the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show this year was made in order to preserve the event’s historical focus on the hunting and fishing traditions enjoyed by American families,” said Chet Burchett, Reed Exhibitions President for the Americas. “In the current climate, we felt that the presence of MSRs would distract from the theme of hunting and fishing, disrupting the broader experience of our guests. This was intended simply as a product decision, of the type event organizers need to make every day.“It has become very clear to us after speaking with our customers that the event could not be held because the atmosphere of this year’s show would not be conducive to an event that is designed to provide family enjoyment. It is unfortunate that in the current emotionally charged atmosphere this celebratory event has become overshadowed by a decision that directly affected a small percentage of more than 1,000 exhibits showcasing products and services for those interested in hunting and fishing.“ESS has long been proud to participate in the preservation and promotion of hunting and fishing traditions, and we hope that as the national debate clarifies, we will have an opportunity to consider rescheduling the event when the time is right to focus on the themes it celebrates.”
