DNR should help businesses


Dear Woods-N-Water News:

I am writing as a concerned Michigan sportsman of over 40 years. I am losing faith in the MDNR and our legislators as to how they are appropriating OUR taxpayers' dollars.

I would like to know why the chief of the MDNR wildlife division is spending millions of taxpayer and licensing fees dollars to CLOSE business's in Michigan. I am an avid hunter on both my land as well as hunting preserves in Michigan. I have been hearing that the DNR is trying to close hunting preserves. I believe the chief of the wildlife division of the DNR should be concentrating on issues on STATE land. He is not in charge of private property. Maybe he should concentrate on the following areas:

• There is a huge coyote problem all over Michigan including the suburbs. In my area I have been told if I own a small dog to have them on a leash and do not leave them unattended.

•How about reintroducing pheasant hunting in Michigan? Why doesn't the DNR do something about that industry? They should be helping the economy, not hurting it.

•There has been a lack of grouse in Michigan. How about they concentrate on that population?

We need to encourage business in Michigan, NOT CLOSE businesses in Michigan. Michigan is known for its hunting and fishing industry. Why is the DNR taking actions with our taxpayer money to destroy it? Michigan's economy is struggling already. We need all the help we can get to promote revenue. I believe that Michigan will lose more dollars in revenue because the DNR is regulating the hell out of our resources.

I will close with the DNR mission statement: "…the conservation, protection, management, use and enjoyment of the state's natural and cultural resources for current and future generations."

Sincerely

Bill O'Flynn
