WI GSTC / DNR seeks WOHVA input
Recently WOHVA was contacted by the President of the Wisconsin Governors State Trails Council to provide input regarding 4WD opportunities in WI.
Bryan met with the WI DNR today. The purpose of the meeting was to present both current state and furture opportunities for 4WD enthusiasts.
Bryan continues to be a strong proponent of all types of OHV recreation including 4WD interests.
You may recall Bryan was instumental in heading up the OHM registration program. He has also volunteered to assist us with the 4WD registration program.
Attached is a copy of the letter I forwarded on behalf of WOHVA, W4WDA and 4WD enthusiasts in general.

Deer Hunting Safety
Can you believe it, Wisconsin's annual deer hunting season is right around the corner. As over 600,000 hunters will take to the woods next weekend it's a good time to remind us all, no matter how experienced we may be, about the 4 basic rules for all hunters.
1. Treat every firearm as if it is loaded
2. Always point the muzzle in a safe direction
3. Be certain of your target and beyond
4. Keep your finger outside the trigger guard until ready to shoot
It is likely there will be a fair amount of corn still standing in the southern half of the state. Hunters should use their binoculars - not their rifle scope - to verify their target and what is beyond. Twigs, branches or standing crops will not stop your shots if you miss your target. You must be certain you have a safe backstop before you shoot.
One-third of all hunting incidents during the gun deer season are self-inflicted injuries. This makes it a must to keep your finger outside the trigger guard until you are certain you are ready to shoot.
According to the WI DNR website there were 9 incidents during the 2015 gun deer season with 3 resulting in fatalities.
WOHVA wishes all hunters a safe and rewarding hunt!
WOHVA wishes everyone a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving! This is a time to spend with family and reflect on the things that are most important to us. It's also time to endulge in a feast of Turkey and all sorts of side dishes and watch some football.
This is alo a time to remember those that are less fortunate. Please consider making a donation to your local food pantry.
Sokaogon Chippewa – Thank you for your partnership with WOHVA.
The Wisconsin Off-Highway Vehicle Association (WOHVA) would like to thank the Sokaogon Chippewa Community for the opportunity to partner together for the past 10 years in OHV enthusiast a venue for education and recreation.
Recently WOHVA was informed that the Tribal Resolution Agreement between the Sokaogon Chippewa and WOHVA has come to a conclusion. We are saddened to hear of this news.
It was a pleasure to host our Annual OHV Enthusiasts Workshops and Membership Meetings at the Mole Lake Lodge and Casino. WOHVA also enjoyed the opportunity to develop and maintain a remarkable 4 wheel drive trail network on Tribal Holdings.
WOHVA would like to wish the Sokaogon Chippewa Community all the best in the future!
