What About Extending Small-Game Season?
Since the increase in deer season, this has decreased the days of the small-game season. Even though the small-game season comes in during November, you really can’t hunt public hunting or even private areas for rabbits when the deer season is in due to dogs disturbing deer hunters and the possible harm that may come to me or the beagles. I propose extending the small-game season up until or just before turkey season. It costs to keep up with my beagles in feed and vet bills only to get to hunt them a few times a year. I still work, so I can’t hunt every day and sometimes not every weekend. Any other ideas? Please consider the small-game hunters

Fox Reports Biden’s Latest Move Against Hunting
GON readers should be aware and read the article that dropped on Fox News on April 30: “Biden’s war on hunting faces blowback from Republicans, sportsmen groups.” (A link will be available at GON.com in the June issue.)
This is another area of this administration that we sportsman should be VERY concerned about and the GON family (readers) should be aware. Please start encouraging others to registers to vote. I work in commercial construction, and it is fairly common that in our industry a lot of workers hunt and fish. I have found that many are not registered to vote. I tell them the struggles my grandfather went though on Saipan, Iwo Jima and Tinian (some of the worst fighting in the Pacific Theater of WWII). I tell them I owe it to him and all the others to stand in line and cast an educated vote because I have never had to endure such experiences because of their sacrifices. I tell them that I am sure that someone in their family made similar sacrifices and so they owed the same debt of gratitude. That is reason enough to vote.
I pray that God will restore some sanity to this country.
