One more time everyone. Lynn needs every bit of support we can muster up for him. Anti people are doing a better job than we are, convicting the legislators to not confirm him. It dose not take much, just a few minutes to write a letter of support.
Here are some points you can use, or personal interaction you had with Lynn works good to.

Life long Alaskan(2nd generation)
Has a family business
2020 trapper of the year
subsistence trapper and hunter
Helped on the "share the trails" pamphlet
Promotes responsible hunting and trapping
Is well prepared/educated for every BOG meeting
Was AC member
Makes decision on proposal based on sustained yield
Listens to public input
Understands the best data available and uses it in decision making
Represents all Alaskans first
Board member of the South Central ATA

Please summit a letter of support today. His hearing is set for Wednesday at 3:30 Senate Resources. Also sent one to your House Representative and Senator.
To sent an email to Senate Resources you can use this email. Senate.Resources@akleg.gov

To find your Legislator's contact info to can use this link. http://akleg.gov/index.php

Today is the day for public testimony for Lynn. As of this morning Resident Hunters of Alaska have rallied their base. They have summitted about 75 letters opposing Lynn. We have about 17 letter of support. I know there are still letters out there that have to be posted, but it is up to us to support Lynn.
The call in number is 1-844-586-9085. Call in at 3;30 tell the person you wish to testify in Senate Resources for BOG appointees.

Who is RHAK supporting? Sounds like its time to fight fire with fire.

They have no one. Their guy was not reappointed, and they do not want any more guides on the Board.

It's symbolism over substance on RHAK's part because even though Lynn holds a registered guide license he does not run a hunting guide business and only works as an employee for one hunt a year. Pretty much a glorified cook who might have to skin something. Or it's just a power play to make RHAK feel like they're doing something. Either way RHAK teaming up with the antis does not have a good smell to it especially given their ties to Back Country Hunters.

I never thought i see the day when one trapper of the year, would not support another trapper of the year. Marty Meierotto is opposed to Lynn Keogh. I can only guess you play with the hollywood boys, you start thinking like them.

Live NOW:

Click on Senate Resources

OK they're done with the BOG stuff for now.

Next it goes to the both houses of the legislature for an up or down vote likely sometime 4/22 - 4/28 time frame. That is when it's yes or no!

We need Lynn on the BOG so please send support to the legislature before 4/22.

Funny thing is the guy who called the meeting after the flying during sheep season got banned that ended up creating rhak use to guide with me. He is on the Board of Fish. crazy

The BOF is full of, .............I don't want to get banished.
Let's just say, while the BOG is usually an open and fair place for progress, thought, and honest discussion, the BOF is the exact opposite.


Made it almost 3 years without censor!

The only guy Rhak had was Tom Lamal. I wasn't impressed with his knowledge at the last BoG meeting here in Fbks? Doesn't make any sense to be a one issue group. If Lynn gets voted down who does rhak think they will get that is better? I think rhak may lose members on this.
Al, did the fairbanks AC support Lynn?

Keogh was confirmed to the BOG. The urban lefty extremists voted against him in a solid block but all the R's and bush votes went his way. Great job supporting Lynn!

The Joint Session of the Alaska Legislature provided some amusing drama when it came to Lynn's confirmation.

Rep Andy Josephsen, the "concrete cowboy" anti-trapper from Anchorage, started the objections to Lynn by claiming that there was a pattern to Dunleavy's appointments to the BOG.

1. No diversity
2. Multiple "fish and game" violations. Citing "22 items" on Court View.
3. Previous problems being confirmed

Representative Mike Cronk ("Northway" on this very forum!) rose to point out that Lynn was the ultimate in diversity because: "He not only hunts, he traps AND he fishes!" It was the highlight of the Joint Session!

Others went on to point out that as far as Point 2 was concerned, there were NO game violations and actually the only violation had been a horsepower restriction ticket on the Kenai River years ago.

Several legislators pointed out that what previous legislatures have done, have absolutely no bearing on this one.

Game over....!

Pete
