A Message from the Association President

​Presidents Message 
October 14 2017

   The fall meeting of the WMLA was held today at the MacKenzie Center in Poynette, WI.  The usual people attended. We had an update on the Muzzle Safety Class and Instructor Training. A brief version of the minutes will be out later.

   I had hopes that the shooting numbers would be up this year but that did not happen. The numbers went the other way and clubs are starting to feel the pinch from short revenues. If we want our sport to continue we all need to get out and support the clubs by shooting.

   There are several anti-gun bills in state legislation. If you care about your freedoms contact you state legislator and talk with them about your feelings, but be polite.

   Hunting season has begun, get out and enjoy the fall weather, get some small game and scout for deer. There has been some changes to the laws so be sure you read up on them. Good luck to all if you go hunting. Don’t forget to contact Harley Whitt if you get a deer, turkey or a predator and get it on the books. The forms are in the “Badger State”.

   Remember each member of the WMLA can attend the quarterly meetings and each club can have two members at the table to get involved so we don’t loose what we have. We need some input for the “Badger State” so consider writing and article.

   Get out and hunt and hunt SAFELY and enjoy.
