OK… You guys know that I can be pretty hard on the Dept of Game and Fish…. It is not because I hate them or have anything personal against them it is just that I want them to do the right (IMO) for the Resident Sportmans of NM… Anyway, about 2 years ago Dan W. and I talked about trying to get the Commission Meetings broadcast on the internet. At the time we both thought it would be a good idea but we just didn’t think it would happen in a timely manner…WELLLLLLL, IT FINALLY HAPPENED…. This is pretty cool… Look at this press release. I just talked to Dan W. and he mentioned that it is something that the Martinez Administration is really pushing… Cool… This made my day….
