Thanks to everyone who participated in the spotlight surveys, not only to those who rode in the trucks and counted deer, but to those who bought all the goodies, such as chips, dips, cheese, crackers, sausage, cookies, cakes, pies, wine, etc. The list goes on. We had a great time visiting with old friends and new neighbors. Hopefully, we can do it again next year.
Next up, the Herd Composition forms need to be turned in to Jerry Rogers by the first week of September. The forms can be emailed to Jerry at firstname.lastname@example.org, or mailed or dropped off at his mailbox at 1128 Starridge Road. Please remember to total the columns at the bottom of the form. Jerry will then submit our information to Mark Lange.
The Oakridge WMA Fall Meeting (AKA doe permit meeting) with Mark Lange will be held September 10th at 9 am at the Community Center. The September ORWMA Board meeting will be held immediately following the doe permit meeting. Among the topics will be discussion to elect the ORWMA President and Communications Chairperson at the October Board Meeting. If interested in serving as ORWMA President or Communications Chairperson, I will send out the roles and responsibilities as defined in the ORWMA Bylaws. Also, up for discussion will be the upcoming Youth Hunt scheduled for November 18-20. We are looking for landowners who want to volunteer their deer stands (must be registered on LMA). We are also looking for cash donations to help fund the event as well as volunteers to help with the event. This includes setting up, as well as cooks and servers.
Thanks again to everyone who participated in the spotlight surveys. Hope to see you September 10th.
