Wayne Lackey started this petition to Governor of Alabama and

The State of Alabama has a committee of people called the Conservation Advisory Board(CAB)that was appointed(not elected) by the Governor to help the Department and Game and Fish make rules and regulations concerning hunting and fishing. We feel that these people are discriminating against people who choose to hunt deer with the aid of a dog. Not one member of this Conservation advisory board is a dog hunter and because of that they do not understand our position. This board recently proposed an encroachment rule as well as permit system for Talladega and Clay counties. This rule was brought up and voted on at a meeting held in Gulf Shores which is a 5 hour drive from the effected counties. We feel that the CAB did this intentionally in order to disenfranchise the people being effected without opposition. This rule was not introduced at the previous meeting for discussion as required by the committee rules. There have been no reasons given for why we are having these restriction put upon us. We were told that this permit system would not effect dog hunters on US National forest land, but that has proven to not be the case. We have learned that this permit system would effectively eliminate hunting deer with the aid of a dog on the Talladega National forest which will restrict hundreds of hunters. We feel that we are being punished without cause. Many of us will no long hunt if this permit system is imposed upon us. The State Game and Fish says that they do not have jurisdiction on Federal land, however we know from past experience that the US Forest service will allow the state to make the regulations to do with hunting and fishing. This would effectively eliminate dog hunting on the National Forest. We want our elected to officials to put a stop to this permit system until it can be discussed by committee of dog hunters with members of the game and fish. We want clarification as to how this rule will effect dog deer hunters on the Talladega National forest and we want it put into writing. There have been not details provided to the effected. We feel that this Conservation Advisory Board has not served the people of Alabama in a fair and honest manner. We want your help.
