As you all have probably have heard now that Gary Knapp has stepped down from the president position. He has done a great deal for us in his last 30 plus years fighting for us dog hunters. I myself and others have seen him in action, fight for us. I am sure he will continue to fight; it is in his blood I believe. He probably just won’t be playing such an active role now. As I would like to think him on behalf of the West Virginia Bear Hunters Association, for everything he has done in the past and also in the future.
I would like to thank everyone for giving me this opportunity. I know I have a big set of shoes to fill and will do my best to fill them. We still have a bumpy road ahead of us. I have had the opportunity this past Thursday to go out with bear biologist to locate a sow and her cub. Unfortunately we were unable to locate her she had moved out of her den. The cub was also not there which he should have been. Well I guess you can say we had a good walk and training for me before I hit the woods for training season. As training season now comes along please remember that you represent something bigger than just yourself. You represent all bear hunters. How people see what you do is how they see us all. I am just asking you to be polite and respectful whenever possible.
