    Clear messages in red at top of page?

    Since the new look on here it shows I have 698 messages in a small red number at the top of the forums page. When I read one it reduces that number by one. Is there a way to clear that to zero without clicking on every message and without erasing messages?

    Editing an application Costs the app fee

    Decided today to edit an app I had already put in for this year. Was fast and easy, but it costs $9 (NR price) to do that. I guess that is fair, but was surprised it would cost to change an existing already paid for app. The computer does it anyway and the draw hasn't started yet.....

    CWD to other species: another angle?

    I have been in discussions about whether or not CWD might ever cross into humans, and of course the jury is still out. However, I have bought a bear tag for the first time this year for Colorado, and it got me thinking: If it ever does cross to other species, might it first be to the...

    New Small game license = decreased grouse population?

    I wonder if they have taken in to account that there will be many more grouse killed under the new "qualifying" license system? Will it hurt the grouse population?
