Well, 2017 is almost a memory as I write this. Much has changed in the past year. Some good for our hunting community, so not so good.
As for the not so good, OHA members must get involved with legislative actions, ODFW Commission actions. If you start leaving things to others...the "OTHERS" will speak their minds and we will lose. If you don't have the time to attend meetings, go to the OHA website - Oregonhunters.org- you will find information on how to make contact with legislators and commissions. Consider putting your name on the E ALERT email list. OHA uses this list to send information on upcoming actions. If you don't know what's going on, you can't help and without your help we may see our privileges disappear. Check the website and look at the "Get Involved" menu and pay attention to the Legislative News. The state office will post legislative actions that will affect us.
Another area for you to become involved is by attending or donating to our annual Blacktail Classic Banquet. With the monies we raise at the banquet enables us to contribute to various habitat projects, OSP equipment, and the TIP (turn in poachers) program. Again without your donations we have to purchase items for the banquet making our bottom line less in the long run. Please help.
We are accepting ticket orders for the 2018 Blacktail Classic Banquet. The 2018 banquet will be April 7 at Columbia Hall, OR State Fairgrounds. We'll have games, raffles, and auctions. Hope to see you there. See the link for downloading a copy of the ticket order form on the MORE page then scroll down to the - BLACKTAIL CLASSIC BANQUET page.
