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!

Email from Del Albright
This land use and leadership email comes to you from Del Albright, BRC National Ambassador, using iContact.
Allow me to close out the year in a land use fashion by reminding us all that IF we want to change the world we believe in, we must be fully in the game –
JOIN, DONATE and VOLUNTEER.
These are the answers to preserving our off-highway sports and recreation.
In my experience, it really is that simple. If we all do it, in those causes that are important to us, our country will be a better place.
FOR CONVENIENCE, here are two places you can keep up with my writings and those articles I share from other reputable folks:

WORVPI Suspends Project
The Wisconsin Off-Road Vehicle Park, Inc. (WORVPI) has suspended further pursuit of our Forest County Off-Road Vehicle Park Project. As the result of the current political climate, WORVPI has determined that further investment in this county would not be prudent and best use of our member’s financial support.
We would like to thank the Forest County ATV Association, the Forest County Chamber of Commerce, the Forest County Tourism Commission and the other local supporters whom aided in development of our MRA Project.
WORVPI will continue to pursue other options to secure a location in or near a community which is receptive to the nearly $28,000,000 projected annual economic impact that will accompany Park development and operation.
Save the Date!

The Wisconsin Off-Highway Vehicle Association’s 5th Annual Great Northern Trail Ride
The Wisconsin Off-Highway Vehicle Association (WOHVA) is happy to announce that our 5th Annual Great Northern Trail Ride will held on the Mole Lake Indian Reservation on August 18th & 19th. The Mole Lake Lodge & Conference Center serves as the host site for this outstanding event. If you can only get out on the trail once this year, you’re gonna want to make this the event you attend!
In August of 2007, the Sokaogon Mole Lake Band of the Lake Superior Chippewa Tribal Council passed a Resolution which granted WOHVA exclusive access to Tribal Lands for OHV recreational events! The Mole Lake Reservation is located in Forest County, Wisconsin (deep in the heart of the Northwoods). These trails are available only for private riding events and are not open to public recreation. The result is an area that few have ever seen and even fewer have been able to access with OHV’s!
To state that “You can be one of only a few OHV recreational users to explore the area” doesn’t start to do this opportunity justice! You’ll not only see the site of the controversial Exxon Mine, but you’ll view several private lakes and areas not open to the public! Not to mention, you’ll be able to explore the area while negotiating trails that were specifically designed to challenge both your driving skills and the capability of your vehicle.
Trails are available for 4-Wheel Drives, ATV’s, and UTV’s. They range in difficulty from novice to extreme. There is quite simply, “Something for everyone!” on over 4000 acres of land. Mark your calendars now and join us for this truly awesome, all-inclusive event!
Participation is limited to the first 100 vehicles in each of the aforementioned vehicle types! Visit http://www.wohva.com for additional event information.
Room reservations are available by contacting the Mole Lake Lodge & Conference Center (715) 478-3200. For camping contact the Mole Lake Tribal Forestry Department at (715) 478-7560.
