What will everyone be hunting Thanksgiving morning?
I grew up rabbit hunting Thanksgiving but have been duck hunting now for about 12 years. This year I might try rabbit hunting again unless the weather is cold and wet, then I will be at the duck pond.
I am a member of the Meade Co. High School Archery Club and we are trying to find some shoots going on around Kentucky. If anyone knows of any, please let me know.

Deer/Turkey Poaching Ring Broken Up In Ohio
Ohio wildlife officers say they’ve shut down a poaching ring that centered around a Jefferson County, Ohio, deer and turkey check station with the arrests Monday morning of eight people, including the shop owners.

Keith Beebee, and Karen Beebee, owners of K&L Sports in Richmond, Ohio, were the focus of the investigation. Also cited were Ken Dorsey, Michael G. Maurer, and Brian Benner, of Bloomingdale; Curtis H. Judy, and Steven Gamron, of Richmond; and James A. Schrecengost of Cortland.

Ohio Division of Wildlife (DOW) officials say they’ve filed more than 70 counts of illegally tagging and killing wild turkeys and white-tailed deer, over-harvesting deer and turkeys, spotlighting and shooting deer outside of the state’s hunting season and tagging deer in other hunters’ names. The investigation is continuing and DOW officials say more people are involved in the poaching operation. Additional charges are expected to be filed within the next few days.

This was sent to me so I thought I'd pass it along.

For 50 years, the Harvard Law School Forum has been sponsoring speeches by
luminaries ranging from Fidel Castro to Gerald Ford to Dr.Ruth.
Sometimes the speeches have generated a bit of media coverage, sometimes
not.  But one given last month by Charlton Heston has taken on a life of its

Heston, the actor and conservative activist, delivered a stem-winder to about
200 listeners about "a cultural war that's about to hijack your birthright to
think and say what resides in your heart.   "He knew he was coming to a
liberal environment, and clearly a group of his listeners was conservative
and another was more liberal," said David Christopherson, president of the
forum.  "About half respectfully challenged him during the questions.  It
generated a lot of debate around the campus.  But what happened caught us

What happened was Rush Limbaugh's radio talk show.  On March 15, Limbaugh
read the entire speech on the air, only to find himself bombarded with
thousands of requests for a copy of it.  The same thing happened at Harvard
Law.  "We couldn't keep up with all the requests," said Mike Chmura at
Harvard.  "It really didn't have legs and might have been forgotten if Mr.
Limbaugh hadn't decided to deliver it."

'Winning the Cultural War'
Charlton Heston's Speech to the Harvard Law School Forum, Feb 16, 1999.

I remember my son when he was five, explaining to his kindergarten class
what his father did for a living. "My Daddy," he said, "pretends to be
people."  There have been quite a few of them. Prophets from the Old and New
Testaments, a couple of Christian saints, generals of various nationalities
and different centuries, several kings, three American presidents, a French
cardinal and two geniuses, including Michelangelo.  If you want the ceiling
repainted I'll do my best.  There always seem to be a lot of different...
Didn't really know where to post this guy, but I think it's rather unique. BTW, he didn't come to a whistle [:D]

Dang i have been sitting here waiting on someone to post about Art Lander's article in the sunday Herald Leader titled: "Cost of Nature, wildlife management areas examine user fee"!!!! Two of kentuckys largest wma's, central kentucky wma and western kentucky wma have a combined maintenance cost of more than $300,000 a year!!! LKS president " we don't think it's fair that hunters and fishermen should have to bear the entire cost of the upkeep and maintenance of state wildlife management areas." AMEN brother! make the horse back field trialers pay to mow Central. "licensed trappers, hunters, fisherman and boaters would be exempt....we know there are alot of issues that will need to be resolved" ....." the cost should be about the same as the cost of a fishing and hunting license, ballpark figure about $20"

this sounds fair to me! if out of state trialers can afford to trailer in 20 dogs to run in a field trial and pay entry fees they can pay a user fee to have the privelage of usage of "our" wma.

looking forward to hearing responses from the masses!
