Surewood, I was just going to post this exact same message. If you want to read more about it Dennis Andersen wrote an article in the Strib about it.

Let's help and do our part to save this program. The Ducks Unlimited website (ducks.org/farmbill) make is very easy to write to your representative.

On a related note from a state program standpoint...State programs such as the Reinvest in MN (RIM) are going to be competing with a lot of other issues/programs for state bonding money on 08'. It's not too early to begin discussions with your state legislature's and tell them how important it is to put a priority on funding these sort of programs. There are some shorter term (20 yr) RIM contracts that are expiring this year and without any funding, the lands will go back into production. Go to the MN house and senate websites and contact your legislature's.

daydreamer, I read the article from Dennis Anderson, it's good that he is willing to keep people informed. He's right that many people complain but very few do anything about it. Everyone please do your part as like many other people, I want to be able to take my son hunting some day in the future.

      model name / number: Mako Upgraded to an electric auger and selling my old one. Runs great and has been well taken care of. Starts on 2-3 pulls every time. I have the extension for it as well as a new set of blades that I bought but haven't needed to change yet. I also have a cabelas auger bag that it fits in.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.
