I am forwarding this information for Lori Hansen. Lori is spearheading the push to legalize tracking wounded deer with a leashed dog in Iowa. This has been an ongoing saga for about 5 years in Iowa. The initial petition was unanimously approved and recommended for legalization until the most recently elected Governor, Govenor Branstad decided to change the process of rule change through the petition process. It was bad timing and since then has become bogged down, and a challenge to get the elected legislators to move this through, and legalize what the overwhelming amount of Iowan’s want. I want to thank Lori Hansen for all her hard work. I also want to thank Larry Gohlke and Cheri Faust for representing the United Blood Trackers and manning the booth at the 2014 Iowa Classic. For more information about the United Blood Trackers please visit www.unitedbloodtrackers.org
Don’t forget to stop by the United Blood Trackers booth at this year’s Iowa Deer Classic (February 28 – March 2nd) to sign our petition! If you can’t make the Classic and want to be included, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. All it needs to say is I, your name, your city/state, support tracking shot deer with leashed tracking dogs. Feel free to ask your friends to support this cause by signing the petition or emailing me too!
After we collect signatures, the petition with signatures and emails received will be submitted to the Director of the Iowa DNR.
We are ready to move forward!
