You're right slick.
I would like to see ODWC's booth on grinding up bass for chum, at the classic. Doesn't make sense to me, but it really doesn't have to. I generally don't fish for crappie and this does not affect me.
KUK, ODWC has employees that have a different opinion than you do. I do not think you all are off on the crappie limits necessarily, just food for thought. If someone wants to use crappie for holiday decorations, power to them. We live in an anthing goes world today.
When I was an 11 year old inner city kid in the early 70's and got to go squirrel hunting in the Bird Creek bottoms, I skinned and cooked my game. The good book says a lazy man does not roast his prey. I think we have an obilagtion to eat what is edible, for stewardship. I really like the honor many Native Americans give to their wildlife harvest, and their value of life taken. The older I get, the more I feel this way, so if you're young and don't feel the same, you may eventually.
Here's and idea I like to do, clean your freezer out spring and fall and give to someone. It makes room for a new harvest and helps others.
I will not condem this person and sorry if I have, but I do not like the law you oversee KUK, on this one. Some states have laws that are different, there is merit and reasoning on the other side.
I will say all outdoorsmen need to stick together and respect one anothers fish/game, or the anti's will win. We need to hang together or we will hang seperately.
