I have it from a good source that there is a significant rift between the high ups at the ODNR and the Div of Wildlife over the wildlife fund. It appears as though there is a push to bring the DOW "under the reigns" completely of the ODNR so they can dip into the wildlife fund. I also have been told that one of the leaders of the ODNR told the DOW chief that hunters and fishermen "don't matter anymore" and that it's all about "parks". This is very concerning. Our license dollars are paid out knowing they will go to the DOW for wildlife management, not to the parks so some yuppie can go on nature hikes and eat granola. We need to push our elected state representatives to pass the license increases and to keep the wildlife fund out of the hands of the general fund for the ODNR. One of the main reasons there has been a lack of proper forestation for habitat at our state owned properties is due to these "park" type of folks at the ODNR. I also have info that the ODNR told the DOW that if they want to make anymore land purchases in the near future they must sell 1.5 acres for every new acre they acquire. This put a wrench in plans to purchase 60,000 acres of land from AEP in SE Ohio. My source is a reliable one.
