The internet is also a tool to be utilized by those who can not attend. Gather up the contact info (email and phone numbers) of the decision makers and distribute it to your membership. Give them a basic outline to follow and flood the decision makers with emails and phone calls. Identify the appropriate members of your state legislature that are on committees dealing with wildlife issues and include them as well.

This type approach can be very effective IF you can get enough folks motivated and involved.

I hate to see that New Mexico is upon this threshold. As mentioned above the internet seems to be a powerful tool for voicing opinions. Montana is going through a similar situation even though the voters of the state voted against a recent trapping initiative.
Our FWP has been influenced by letters from out of state and even out of the country people against trapping. If they bring these letters to the TAC meetings and read them hopefully they will do the same for letters of support.
Call out to all trappers to write and send emails to the NM Game Commision. I will be sending one here shortly. Good luck with the battle. Perhaps another thread posted up in Trapper Talk will get more response.
