Here's the short of it: Huey Lewis is a monstrous douche. For some reason FWP is considering a petition that he filed to close access and duck hunting on portions of Mitchell Slough. Now, you may not give a shit about duck hunting on public water but this kind of ridiculous thing sets precedent for every Huey-like douche in the state to petition to have public land or water next to their property closed to recreation. I ask you all to please sign this petition, it takes about 15 seconds.
Its been noted here that newbies sometimes get a rough treatment. Here is one response, written by Old Dog, that might help those thinking of making their first post understand a little bit about this place. After you read this take a moment (or two or three) and look around and get a sense of this place. If you're still interested make your intro and join the fray. —Jed
