Just got back from the meeting in OKC to discuss proposed changes to the 2007 fishing and hunting regulations. I'll just do the high points. 1. Allow hunters to apply for controlled hunts via ODWC website applications. Sounded okay to me. 2. Allow walk in fishing on ODW lands at Lake Arcadia. allow controlled deer archer hunts through the City of Edmond, and to prohibit camping on the ODW lands. Sounded okay to me. 3.Delete the number of shad limit a person could have in his possession. and change the possession limit of the number of shad that can be transported in state from 150 to 200. Prohibit the sale, offer to sale, or transportation of shad out of the state. Good idea, also. 4. Add low point beer to list of items prohibited on department lands, except in camping or parking areas. This provision I personally am dead set against. The thought was it is easier to deny access to the alcohol than it is to apprehend/arrest those persons who drank to an excess. My take on this matter is I spent over 20 years of my life guaranteeing our citizens their right to personal freedoms. Now the want to ban the beer. Next year it probably will be to ban smoking on all ODWC lands as it is carcegenic to the game and wildlife. What a crop of bull. 5. To add new rules for those people who take care of the sick/injured wildlife which are not commerical enterprises. Think this is a good thing. I am going to divide this post into parts to make sure I get it all posted. This is part 1.
