    So help me connect the dots. Is this part of the brouhaha over the duck hunting/illegal baiting?

    Some of that at least....the coverup, etc. but other larger issues that will probably surface soon. Others are involved and with the appt. of Tourism Chief of Staff as the interim Commissioner, it is obvious that Parkinson is stepping in to clean up whatever messes are there. I am aware that there are several whistleblower cases and several appearing before Ethics Committee related to other issues.............Strader radio show called this a couple weeks ago and it is now starting to play out.......Damn, I hate being listed as a "fawn" over here LOL....I was a 10 pointer before I lost my email provider...........

    Hope they clean up those that put a black eye on an otherwise great department.

    I suppose Bevins is still in the saddle? He should have been the first one gone, followed by a few more.

    How many ways can they step on their own peckers?

    What we should be concerned with is that the Tourism/Commerce Director is now heading KDFWR. Talk about taking care of the NR hunters! Next will be horses and off road parks on WMAs!

    We just have to make sure the kdfw budget stays out of the general fund

    Funny, Gassest got heat from telling them to stick it over horses on wma's. Anybody missing having someone in charge that was a biologist and had the sportsmens back?
