Critical NRC hearing on Field Trail Enclosures

Post by jackrabbit » Tue Apr 26, 2011 9:02 am

The meetings announced below are critical to all Indiana sportsmen. Along with the Fox and Coyote Field Trial areas, IDNR is already mumbling that they want to restrict the Beagle Field Trial Areas also. Its extremely important that everyone write and plan to attend one of the meetings. Tell the NRC that you support the existence of Coyote enclosures and that since there has never been a complaint there should be no Moratorium or size minimum.

Thank you
