WES’S NOTEBOOK
The excitement is building, at least here at my household. It is open water fishing season and the time is fast approaching that some of us are headed to Devils Lake. I probably bragged a bit last year when we came home with several limits of quality walleye, pike and white bass. I am looking for a repeat, but I hear that the lake rose another two feet or so and that means some new exploration. What an amazing resource it is! But, we certainly feel for those folks that are losing their farms and homes to the high waters. CHAPTER HAPPENINGS The annual election is coming culminating with ballot counting done at the Annual Meeting scheduled for July 26th. As you recall, we elect four directors to serve on our board for three year terms each year. This year the incumbents whose terms are being completed are Ed Mundorf, Dick Mavis, Mike Moore and myself. All of these members have been re-nominated and Ron Teselle has joined the slate of candidates. See the biographical sketches elsewhere in this newsletter. A matter of considerable concern in recent years has been how the elections are carried out, both in terms of equity and cost efficiency. This led to much discussion about an appropriate processes. The board wishes to make sure that each member has ample and equal opportunity to cast a vote and adopted the following procedure for the upcoming election. When balloting begins in the next (June) newsletter, if you are a member you may cast your ballot in any of three methods. You may cast a ballot: 1. as a return email; 2. by mailing a paper ballot from a paper copy newsletter which will appear opposite the mailing label (label needs to remain readable); or, 3. by casting a ballot at the meeting by showing your IKEs ID card. Only the election committee will know who voted for whom. The committee will certify that each member will be allowed one vote correlated with the membership roster. I urge you to exercise your voting privileges. Only you can elect the best leaders for our chapter. OTHER STUFF In other action, our board has decided that it is high time to undertake a serious review of our bylaws. The last changes were made back in 1997, 14 years ago. With that in mind, a special board meeting is called for June 7th to be dedicated to that mission. As always, all members are welcome to attend. I am pretty sure

The new 75 yard facility should really take some pressure off of the old “pistol/small bore” range. If you haven’t been out to look it over, go out and see what you think. Please let the board know what you think. We are trying a bit of new approach. With some intermediate target backers, safety must be high on the list of concerns. We need to police ourselves in order to prevent problems, problems that could result in closure of our rifle ranges. Range safety is a number one priority thus everyone needs to be observant. Please read the signs.

that some of the changes will be approved by the board and thus need to be adopted by the membership at the annual meeting to become official. A long awaited opportunity for persons wishing to learn basic handgun shooting is about to present itself. Member Kent Kennedy approached the board offering to provide classes in handgun shooting as a benefit to new and other interested persons. Our board enthusiastically embraced the plan and urged Kent to move full speed ahead. Of course, as with all activities, the logistics will need to be

CHAPTER 65 MEMBERS, we finally put the finishing touches on the new multi-use range. This range has one bay and target backer at 25 yards and we ask that it only be used for sighting in new rifles, or new sight/scope or other optical sight system. Because this target is not close to the berm, we would ask that you limit your time on this firing point. There are also three bays (six benches) at 75 yards corresponding with three target backers. Likewise at 50 yards there are three bays (six benches) for the three 50 yard target backers. We need to be especially careful not to cross fire over to another target as that may put other equipment in the line of fire. than a day, but we will send out another notice when we can firm up this date.

Well it finally showed up, I’m talking about the nice weather. The morning temperature was in the mid 50’s with slight North-toNorth East breeze for this Benchrest match. Everyone was visiting about how nice it was not to bundled up and shirring from the cold. After all of the aspects of the weather were discussed, we got down to do some shooting. This month we shot a new format of just two shots on the record bull’seyes. We had two targets posted for each shooter during the match. The targets we use have six bull’s-eyes on them. So the person shooting has one target bull to sight in on and the remaining five targets to shoot for this score. We did have one competitor that added another shot to his target during a memory lapse, but it only cost him an X and it didn’t make a significant difference in his overall score in the end. I like the new format. Chris Benchrest match on July 16th. A couple of the premiere Benchrest matches right in your own back yard. If you need information on either of these matches you can contact me at 402-4205763 or Westover and I were doing the scoring and found it much easier to score and add up things as we went a long. We may look at doing this on a permanent basis for the match’s. The only draw back I can see is that you have twice as much paper to control when the wind decides to pick up. Any way, with the new things we do, we usually find ways to combat the problems that may be associated with them. I’m sure we’ll come up something to fend off Mother Nature’s winds. As mentioned in the newsletter last month, our Nebraska Benchrest Score Championship match is coming up on June 18th and the Cornhusker State Games

The top LSW shooter was Barret Moyer, who tied for 22nd out of 1002, with an 86 x 100. In the high overall events, Chase tied for 8th, and Barret tied for 22nd. In the HOA team events, the LSW Pink team won 3rd place, shooting 764 x 1000, and Gold placed 11th. Overall, LSW and Scott brought home five trophies and 25 medals.

WES SHEETS Hello. I would like to ask for your vote in the coming election as an incumbent seeking re-election. If we haven’t met, I am the current secretary and have served as your president in past years. I am a retired but not tired conservation advocate, at least that is my principle motivation. I had a working career as a fisheries biologist and administrator for the Game and Parks Commission, becoming active in our IKEs chapter in 1998, and have worked on the board since.

With that I would ask for your vote in the coming board election. RON TESELLE I would like to be considered for an open board member position. To give you a brief update of who I am and who I have been involved with in the past, please consider the following. 1983 -2005: I was actively involved with the York, Nebraska, Chapter of the Izaak Walton League. I shot spring, summer, and fall trap leagues during this time. Served as score

keeper most of these years and held an office, but just help out as needed. 2004 to the present: Employed by Apache Camper Center here in Lincoln. Because of my job requirements and hours worked, I am no longer able to shoot with a trap league. 1990-2002 and 2006 to present: I have enjoyed shooting Big Bore Pistol silhouette. Started with the Grand Island range and have also shot at Holdrege and Eustis ranges here in Nebraska, and the Pringle range at South Dakota. I started shooting small bore pistol silhouette here in Lincoln in 2006. I have also been helping to assemble the big bore targets and looking forward to shooting the big bore pistol silhouette here in Lincoln in the near future. 2008 to present: member of the Lincoln IWLA.

The Urban Coyote Management Workshop
On April 21, 2011, the Izaak Walton League hosted the Urban Coyote Management Workshop sponsored by the Wildlife Damage Management Working Group of the Wildlife Society and the University of NebraskaLincoln School of Natural Resources. This was the second workshop on wildlife damage management hosted by the Izaak Walton League. The previous workshop, held in 2010, focused on shooting in sensitive environments. A workshop on the management of coyotes may seem strange to members of the Izaak Walton League given that conflicts with coyotes in Nebraska tend to center on livestock predation. Yet, in many parts of the U.S., conflicts with coyotes are on the rise. While coyotes typically attack pets and scavenge on trash, instances of coyote attacks on humans, including one death of a 19 year-old in Cape Breton Highlands National Park Canada in October 2009, are not unheard of. In light of these events, the Wildlife Damage Management Working Group decided that a hands-on workshop on the management of coyotes in urban areas was needed. The workshop began at 8:00 a.m. The 38 participants were divided into three groups based on their experience with shooting and trapping coyotes. The groups were assigned to the three field Metro barrel and the proper is a canine specific and liveuse of suppressed and trapping device that captures them by looping a relaxing cable over their neck, helped oversee setting the trap.

participants about the importance of being careful, professional, and using the best equipment available. Joe LaBarbera of the LaBarbera Media Group rounded out the day by helping attendees understand how to handle the press. As a former news reporter, LaBarbera explained how reporters are under tremendous time pressure and noted that reporters will report a story whether you speak to them or not. LaBarbera said it is critical that you provide the facts and that you avoid saying “no comment.” In no circumstances should you ever say something is “off the record” cautioning that there is no such thing. He encouraged attendees to begin building relationships with reporters so that your perspective will be treated fairly which is the best that you can hope for. LaBarbera provided explicit rules of dos and don'ts in media relations which provided everyone with strategies for a more successful experience in dealing with the media. The workshop concluded with supper from Parker's Smokehouse, which included beef, pulled pork, muffins, and baked beans along with apple crisp for dessert. The Wildlife Damage Management Working Group and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln School of Natural Resources wishes to thank the Izaak Walton League for making their facilities available to us. In addition, we express our special thanks to Mike Kunkee for his willingness

to go beyond the call of duty to help us. We also thank the kitchen staff of the Thursday night Trap League for “sharing” the kitchen with us. We commend the League for its leadership in helping us provide researchbased information on wildlife damage management to the public. Stephen M.

Please Help Restore Clean Water Protections
For nearly 90 years, the Izaak Walton League and our members have worked to protect and conserve clean water. Today, we have a critical opportunity to provide our support for restoring Clean Water Act protections for streams and wetlands nationwide. The EPA and Army Corps of Engineers have proposed new policy to restore Clean Water Act protections for our nation's waters. These waters are threatened by Supreme Court decisions that are chipping away at the bedrock protections the Clean Water Act provided for streams and wetlands, drinking water supplies, and outdoor recreation. This new policy, which is open for public comment now, is based on sound science and will restore long-standing protections for some of these waters. The League and our members have been working hard to restore the Clean Water Act. This action by EPA and the Corps is a small, but important, victory in our fight. Now, it's up to us to support the proposal during the public comment period. Support from League members and other Americans who hunt, fish, and enjoy the outdoors will make a difference.
