FLY FISHING MEETING IN OKC

DEER DOGGING VOTE SCHEDULED MARCH 24
A vote on banning dogs from the Three Rivers, Pine Creek and Honobia Wildlife Management areas in southeast Oklahoma is scheduled March 24.
The Oklahoma Wildlife Conservation Commission was scheduled to vote on the proposed rule at its regular March meeting earlier this month, but commissioners from southeast Oklahoma were unable to attend the meeting because of the weather.
As a result, a commission meeting on that issue has been set for March 24 in Oklahoma City.
It’s already illegal to hunt deer with dogs, but game wardens contend it would be easier to enforce the law if dogs were banned entirely from those wildlife management areas.
