Newton everytime you try to persuade new members or prospective members that UWF had nothing to do with Curry Island or Mocassin Island you broaden the rift with many old current or former members. The fact that Capt Chris was a regional director who spearheaded the effort to change Curry Island cannot be argued. The only thing that saved Curry Island was that members spoke up and the Management Plan had to be modified. If it werent for that Curry Island would have become a private park or a private lease. Either way hunters would have lost to the antis or to hunter greed. Mocc Island is a bit different but there is still hunter greed involved and you cannot argue that key elements within UWF are working independently to restrict hunting access. In both cases whether independently or supported discretely as you did with the letter on your letterhead, the work is against the mission of improving access for all. It is however easy from a SpaceCoast point of view to justify that you are improving habitat or quality of hunt, but you are only doing so at the expense of other hunters and that is not fair considering the incredible amount of opportunity that the area already has. Last but not least Finsandfeathers, Board votes mean nothing to me. Just like there are no elections to the Board I cannot expect that a Board vote represents what the membership wants it only represents what a majority of 7 people think is best for duck hunting in all of Florida, to me that is playing God! BTW Gianni I never lost God, I just dont preach or push my agenda on others when it comes to religion. I dont care whether you are born again or you sacrifice animals.

I have given you the benefit of the doubt countless times because I continue to hear from other guys that know you what a nice guy you are. If you want to question my integrity, my devotion to a sporting lifestyle, or my decisions as a husband or father while I put my real name on the internet and leave my contact information for everyone to see then I'm going to only ask that we discuss our differences in person from this time forward.
I feel that is the only way I won't lose even more respect for you.

The evolution of where CI was at conception and where it was headed and where it is going today is not revelant to UW-F as an organization....not from the beginning...nor even today.
UW-F did not then and does not today have an opinion as an organization on the CI issue.
Some of those people continue to try to tie UW-F to issues whenever individual (and independent) Members are involved

Here on this thread you have a contingent that includes almost all of the disgruntled EX-membership - none of whom have hunted but a few times at Moccasin, some who have never hunted there, know it all types that do very little in the way of volunteering their time unless it benefits their own ego or business, or adds a bullet to their resume. These are the selfish guys who think they have all the answers, but generally have very few good ideas, and when they do have a useful thought expect someone else to act on it. They enjoy beating on their chests while behind the keyboard...a smattering of bi-polars and miscreants that enjoy running their mouths when no one is around, trying to run off members from our organization. Now they have to do it from the bench. Every organization has a few of these losers to deal with.

Yes, We all knew Jorge was salivating at the thought of a " El Presidente'" of that terrible waterfowl org. .....Sadly, His outburst on the phone with the head of the states waterfowl section...not only would derail any thought of that...but would in effect be a part of why he would not be re-appointed to the BOD. Just can't have that type person....
David L was just being a good Christian man and let him know he was done with the BOD so he could step down with some grace....and for that he took a groin kick..You know what they say..no good deed goes unpunished.
