Please contact Carl if you know of an individual or would be willing to fill one of these two open spots. Remember the person filling the position must live in that District.
The Southwest District shall be bounded by the Pacific Ocean, Highway 42 as stated above to the Northeast corner of Crater Lake National Park and including Crater Lake National Park, then south along the western boundary of Klamath County to the Oregon-California line and west to the Pacific Ocean.
The North Central District shall be bounded by the summit of the Cascades, Columbia River, Highway 395 and Highway 26. All cities and towns on Highway 26 are in this District with the exception of Madras (Central District). (Those cities and towns on Highway 395 are in the Northeast District).
John Stone, an OBH Life Member and owner of The Archery Hut pro shop in Lebanon, is trying to gain signatures on a petition urging the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission to legalize use of lighted nocks for bowhunting in Oregon. I've attached a copy of the petition form that John has prepared. If you have opportunities to get signatures from Oregon bowhunters on the form by posting it in your shops, taking it to your club meetings or 3-D shoots, etc., I'm sure John would appreciate it. Please gather up the signature forms and mail them to John so he receives them not later than September 30, 2014.
