Support for the bills was overwhelming and only four people showed up to oppose the bills (Humane Society, Sierra Club, Cougar Protection). There were so many sportsmen and women there to support the bills they are going to have another hearing to get everyone in to testify. OOC President Stan Steele and past President Wayne Endicott testified as well as our partners at OHA, RMEF, OR Chapter of FNAWS, Leupold, OR State Granges, OR Farm Bureau, OR Cattlemen and more! Rep. Wayne Krieger stated that “the Oregon Outdoor Council is the strongest organization representing natural resource interests in Oregon.” This is a testament to our partners, their unwavering support, and all of you as members!!
It is imperative that you keep emailing the members of the committee especially Rep. Reardon and Unger to politely ask for their support!
