Anyone hear anything lately
I read a article about 2 months ago that it could be the first year since 2008 that I can catch horseshoe crabs again, I sure do miss it
What a screwed up state I live in!!!!

We surely don't want to endanger a 6 ounce bird that flys from South America to the North Pole only stopping once to feed on horseshoe crab eggs??lol
Maybe that's the birds flaw?
