That would suck....
however there is 3 sides to every story.
Scenario this: You work all week 9-5 busting your A and do nothing but look forward to the weekend when you can hunt your favorite spot where you know there are birds. Unfortunately some goons hunted that exact spot Friday night and shot at birds well past shooting time. When you get to the blind your greeted with trampled down vegitation leaving little room for a natural blind and find countless birds stomped into the mud, left there for who knows what reason. Not to mention floating shell casings littered all around a 50 ft radius. and to your surprse the birds that morning are decoy shy... wonder why?
...there has not and will not be any vote on limiting access on Mocc or elsewhere. It is not in UW-F's interest to limit access. It may be necessary to limit access on some venues, but not because it is our desire to do so. If it is required to keep a venue open or if it is desired by the controlling authority or agency, then we deal with it to obtain and continue access.
I talked to Doug yesterday and there are no plans to close Mocc.

Funny, I just got off the phone with one of the Regional Directors of your website.
He's a nice stand up guy,not afraid to say what's on his mind about MI. Although I do not agree with him, he has his thoughts I've got mine.

My position can be one thing...even as UW-F Executive Director....and the UW-F position can be totally opposite....sometimes happens, not often.I can see where a person can have one position and then another depending on what "hat" he wears. I see that a lot in people that lack conviction!
My job is to "know" the Board and what the votes would probably be on all issues. The UW-F Board has never voted to restrict hunting on a property that I know of...and I would expect that record to remain.
However, the UW-F Board does not have to vote on local issues, or any issue, unless the Members see good reason to do so....Until there is good reason to expect the SJRWMD is planning to make a change at MI the issue simply does not seem to come to the level of needing a Board vote. The UW-F Board votes only a handful of times per year...wisely not entering every fray and chosing to patiently "advise and consent" when appropriate.

The UW-F Forums continue to get over 4 million hits a month with several thousand individuals from all over....including a lot of international. The Forums are ranked in the Top 25% of the catagory.....not bad for a "little group of Florida duck hunters"......We want them to be informative and entertaining...but also "kid friendly".
