Maine Big Game Management Townhall/Forum

For those who may not yet be aware, the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife have opened up their Online forum where you can contribute your thoughts and comments on the management of big game in Maine – moose, deer, bear and turkeys.

Please find that site at this link.

I have just spent some time at the site linked to above. Upon visiting the black bear portion of the forum, it is obvious the mentally deprived, anti-hunting, animals-are-humans crowd, has found the site, posting asinine comments and silly pictures.

It’s also interesting that the website says it is designed for Maine residents but anyone can post comments and no registration, requiring a valid email account, is necessary. I don’t know if anyone is monitoring the site but it is doomed to become useless real soon if something isn’t done.

Don’t get me wrong. It isn’t that I think only hunters should be able to comment, but what I am seeing is agenda driven and not following the suggested items to consider about posting.

I don’t think the promoters of this townhall forum put a lot of thought into it. Hopefully it will get ironed out.
