At the WCT confrence in Vegas this year we had a member of the USDA's wildlife services advisory comittee do a presentation on the comittee and his role, and yes, they (WS) are playing dumb in a lot of cases, and some cases just don't know we exist.
they claim if there is an outside bid they back out (not)
We are talking about inviting WS rep's to seminars and sending information to them on a regular basis,,
Gary B. the grad student who did the paper on WS compitition with us also did a great presentation on his findings and he claims they are open to communication as well.
But like buzz says, they are the goverment and do what they want,,,its time for some acountability.
