Looks like inside man Mr. Storm, what do you think?
My understanding is that it was a "rigged" appointment and several statutes were violated in the process.
Had a big article on hey KY ,
Please elaborate if you don’t mind.
Never heard of the guy but is he tied in anyway with tourist bunch ? If so I would be very worried about him giving up the fish and wildlife surplus funds. We all know they would like nothing better than to get their hands on that money.
The commission hires the commisioner. My understanding is that several commission positions were vacant and we're filled with hand picked applicants of Storm and the Cabinet head. These commision members then voted on applicants for Comissioner, choosing Storm from a list of much more qualified applicants.
What is this guys background?
I’m just wondering why in the heck this retired Army Colonel Abell wasn’t selected for the job.... to me he would seem like an outsider choice. It’s evident that F&W needs new management amongst there ranks.
It's a ploy to take over KDFWR by the Tourism Cabinet. Heard that a substantial WMA has already been removed from public hunting area to a "Wildlife Viewing Area".
Can someone please show me how the wmas were purchased and with what funds? Also the upkeep and maintenance of the property. Thanks in advance
WMAs not including State Parks or Corp property are purchased with KDFWR funds which are payed with sportsman's dollars. Not "general fund" tax dollars. Some contributions are also made by sportsman organizations like NWTF, RMEF, DU etc.
I’d love to see the percentages broken down. I’d love to see what other money is used. I’d love to see the specifics of the sale. I’m extremely skeptical that most of the comes from hunting licenses
Hunting/fishing license, boat registration, matching PR Act funds, donations, etc. NOT general fund monies! Sportsmen of KY pay their own way! KDFWR has recently begun a wildlife/conservation organization which I believe is going to end up opening Pandora's Box and KDFWR pocketbook but that's for a different discussion.
