In short, folks, it’s time to HUNT! I shared with you here in the last issue how I’m always looking forward to hunting season, but with all that 2020 has brought us, the desire to get outdoors and hunt is even more intense than I think it’s ever been for me. Before you head out to your favorite hunting spot, though, there is one other extremely important thing you need to do: VOTE!

Three TPWD Killed in Helicopter Crash Three Texas Parks and Wildlife Department employees were killed Aug. 8 in a helicopter crash while conducting aerial surveys for desert bighorn sheep in West Texas. The crash happened in TPWD’s Black Gap Wildlife Management Area in Brewster County.

new york, washington, d.c. attorneys general sue nra

The Associated Press reported the New York state attorney general and the Washington, D.C. attorney general have filed lawsuits in August against the National Rifle Association. Both officials have accused the organization of financial wrongdoing. New York Attorney General Letitia James accuses NRA executives of illegally diverting tens of millions of dollars for lavish personal trips, no-show contracts for associates and other questionable expenditures. James also seeks to dissolve the organization. “It’s clear that the NRA has been failing to carry out its stated mission for many, many years and instead has operated as a breeding ground for greed, abuse and brazen illegality,” she said at a news conference. “Enough was enough. We needed to step in and dissolve this corporation.” Washington, D.C. Attorney General Karl Racine filed suit against the NRA…

pope and young announces entry fee increase

The Pope and Young Club has recently conducted an analysis of its trophy entry fee cost based on historical data and today’s actual cost of processing entries by staff.

These increases were often conducted to ensure staff costs were offset, and the Club made a minimal profit that could be directed towards other operating expenses. The Club’s current entry fee cost of $35 is no longer sustainable to offset all costs associated with processing entries. Additionally, the Club’s last entry fee increase was 12 years ago (2008), further indicating an adjustment was warranted. After reviewing all the information, the Board approved an increase to the trophy entry fee from $35 to $40 per animal, beginning…
