The 5 Signs Turkey Season Can’t Get Here Soon Enough

How many of these describe you?

1) Your diagphram call has become a permanent addition to your mouth.

2) The thought of this many months between deer and turkey season must be someone’s idea of a sick joke.

3) You’ve become an NWTF banquet junkie to get your fix of turkey talk.

4) The phrase “Grand Slam” makes you flash to images of Eddie Salter rather than Babe Ruth.

5) We all know that Thanksgiving really coincides with the spring opener.

Who’s ready to see one of these guys this spring?

A Letter to the Nebraska State Legislature

The following letter was written by Powderhook CEO, Eric Dinger, to the Nebraska State Legislature. Please join Powderhook in working in your state to strike down anti-hunting, senseless legislation like the permanent ban on mountain lion hunting proposed by radical Nebraska Senator Ernie Chambers.

Senators,

My name is Eric Dinger. I live in Senator Bolz’ district here in Lincoln. Please include my email in the testimony presented at tomorrow’s committee hearing on LB 127.

Our company, Powderhook, operates an online hunting and fishing industry marketplace. We work with folks all over the country to find places to hunt and fish, access outdoor events and plan trips.

I’m writing today to tell you that I’m concerned about our mountain lions. More than just the mountain lions, I’m concerned about the precedent LB 127 would set as it relates to the management of our wildlife and wild places here in Nebraska.

Your Public Land is at Risk!

There’s 640 million acres of public federal land in the United States that is open and available for citizens to enjoy year round. This may not be the case if action is not taken soon because legislation is being proposed to transfer federal land to the states so they can manage land as they wish. This may sound like a good thing to some, but there are some very serious issues that need to be looked at before drawing any conclusions.

In The Past 

One of the main problems is once a state takes possession of the land, it is likely to sell it for short-term financial gain which makes that land private permanently. Nevada, for example, was given 2.7 million acres when it became the 36th state in the union in 1864. It now has only 3,000. Utah has sold more than 50 percent of its original land grant and other states show the same pattern of selling off public land. States just do not have it in their budgets to manage the newly owned land and therefore have to turn to alternative actions.

Powderhook Team Helps Launch Online Ticket Sales At NWTF National Convention and Sport Show.

The Powderhook team recently arrived back from participating in the 39th annual NWTF National Convention and Sport Show at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville, TN. While in Nashville, Powderhook helped launch online ticket sales for NWTF on a grand scale, providing a “Skip the Line” opportunity for those with a smartphone that wanted to avoid the deep ticket counter lines. With over 800 tickets sold, the promotion was an outstanding success.
