Default DOW and need for $$$$

The DOW is always saying how they are in need of additional funds, and how tight everything is in their budget.

Well low and behold, I was at Cheyenne Mountain Conference Resort this morning, and there were like 10 DOW trucks in the parking lot, and they were inside having some sort of meeting.

I dont disagree that they need to hold meetings, but hey the Cheyenne Mountain Conf resort is probably only 2nd to the Broadmoor in terms of cost. A breakfast buffet alone there runs north of $30.

They have a huge building up on Sinton road, and I know for a fact that it has plenty of space to hold such meetings.

I dont understand this sort of wasteful behaviour, and then have to listen to them on how tight the budgets are.

WASTEFUL!!!!!!

Kind of off the subject but...
Whats the number to report game poachers? Was at Valco yesterday and saw atleast 10 people bypass the NO FISHING signs and continue on past #3. Then come walking out with stringers full of fish. And they have to pass multiple signs to get back there... You can see them all the way from the road. Let alone walking past them like they dont exist!!

I prefer that the DOW and DNR be fully funded so they can protect the wildlife the outdoor opportunities and the water.
I would recommend you take a few minutes and do some research before you b*tch.
