|Braden's first tiger trout!|
I want to start out by thanking all of our Veterans for their service to our country! I know of a few folks that view our blog that have served in our nation's armed forces, and we thank you for that service! We owe our rights and privileges to you! I know Memorial Weekend has become largely about spending time with family and friends, and many of us head to the outdoors over this period of time to make that happen. As you do so, or as you reflect upon the weekend's fun, I ask you to take a second and think about those sacrifices made that allow you to enjoy your way of life! We are fortunate to have public lands, have the rights to take fish and game from those lands, and to wield firearms and gear to make our outings possible. We are indeed greatful to you for keeping our nation strong and free. We continue to thank those that are in service now to keep those privileges ours.
Speaking of fishing and the Boulder Mountain, here's some important news I want to share. This goes right along with the idea of public lands being ours, and living in a great country where we can enjoy these rights. The Utah DWR is seeking YOUR opinion regarding how the management of Boulder Mountain, Fish Lake, and Redmond Reservoir fisheries! Here's your chance to complete a short survey where you not only are able to select from choices, but to also leave your comments, thoughts, and ideas on the management of lakes in those waters and areas. Please do your part while you have time, follow this link and fill out the survey http://wildlife.utah.gov/dwr/fisheries-surveys.html. Please share it with your friends as well! You will also find a general 2014 fishing management survey as well.
That's all for today, but I'm excited to say we are compiling a great list of posts to share in coming days, as well as some news that is big for the staff of SUH&F this year! As a good friend of mine often says, "Big changes are coming!".
If you have photos of your spring turkey hunts, fishing trips, or family outings over the Easter/Memorial weekend period, we would love to see them! Please feel free to share them on our Facebook page, or email them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
