Please read carefully. There are TWO (2) different petitions in the email. 1.) The first petition is to bring back the use of dogs to hunt BOTH cougar & bear. 2.) The second petition is to bring back the use of dogs to hunt Cougar only. This is TWO (2) different petitions to try and get TWO (2) different ballots. This is to try and help get both bears and cougars to be hunted by dogs again, but at least the use of dogs to hunt cougars.
1.) You will need Adobe/Acrobat Reader to open the petitions files and print them.
2.) Print both pages front and back of one piece of paper. One side will have signature page and the other side will have description of what the petition will do. This means you CAN NOT staple pages together. Do not use any staples on any petitions.
3.) DO NOT sign and/or date the bottom of the petition until you have had people fill out the form. Your signature has to be after the dates of ALL the signatures on the petition.
4.) Please try to mail in all your petition forms before May 15th.
Any additional questions or concerns should be directed to the person with the information below in email.
I just got some news from someone. Sorry about my wrong info earlier.
"The way I understand it is that the wording came back from the first petition at the end of 2009 all changed in the first round. Not something that we could pass. The current two petitons are part of four that he (Jess M.) will be again submitting to get a ballot title and they will again reword what we have. Then we need to choose one and gather like 90,000 signatures to actually get it on the ballot."
PM me your emails and I can send everyone the petitions to gather signatures to bring back the use of dogs to hunt cougars or cougars & bears. The round of gather signatures on the petitions is to get good wording to convince people to like and want a ballot measure like this.
