The Sac Bee recently wrote about the waning political influence of hunters in California. A comment by one Eric Mills (animal activist) at the conclusion of the article suggests that like-minded piss-ants should make their feelings known to the governor, etc. in order to install a commissioner that meets their approval. My guess is that hunters would not approve of the man or woman they would foist upon us.
I have copied the comment with addresses of state officials as written. Take time right now to write letters to these state officials. Better yet, go to Sac and voice your opinion Feb 10/11.
The State Fish & Game Commission next meets in Sacramento on February 10-11 (Wed/Thurs) in the Resources Building, 1416 Ninth Street (near the Capitol). The public is urged to attend and voice their concerns.
See the Commission website for the agenda and the supporting documents. There's a PUBLIC FORUM early-on, both days.

All may be written c/o The Resources Building, 1416 Ninth Street, Sacramento, CA 95814.
Encourage Gov. Brown to fill those two vacancies ASAP with highly-qualified people. Hunters, fishers and non-consumptive users alike need to work together for the benefit of ALL wildlife, which our State Constitution decrees belongs to all Californians.
