I had to leave early just as dutch oven dinners were getting done. Man, did I miss a feast.
I did stop and catch one of the most beautiful fish of my life on the way home. Other items of association news are:

The UTA has reached an agreement with the DWR on the purposed otter plan.

The two most positive points are that we will be trapping otter in 2011 on a draw basis on the Green river Drainage and the DWR has agreed to use the least restrictive trapping restrictions possible on all other otter transplant areas in the state.

We are preparing for the Furbearer R.A.C.s, which will be coming up the end of July. At these R.A.C. meetings, we will be bringing up the non-protected species issue.This could turn out to be a fairly heated topic, but we feel that we have a good chance to win this one.Watch the Web site after the middle of August and we will let you know how this turns out.

Raffle tickets will be in members’ mail soon. Please do all you can to sell as many as you can. This is one of the lifelines of our association and we depend on these sales for operating finances. We realize these are hard economic times, but we can do it if we try. Once again, there will be some very nice prizes for those that sell the most and a drawing for those that sell a bunch.

Let’s start thinking about the Sept. 12 and 13 Convention right now. Make plans to attend. It will be worth your time.
