Are you planning to enjoy a delicious Guinness or Harp beer this St. Patrick’s Day? Then be prepared to swallow bits of dead fish (seriously!).
I am currently sitting in Chicago as the river is dyed green for what I once believed was my rightful Birthday…St. Patrick’s Day. Just as I was once surprised to learn that I would not be getting presents on this day, I am now surprised to find that dead fish play a critical step in the process of making Guinness, my favorite Irish beer.

Fall is my favorite time of year; leaves change color and fall to the ground, farmers are busy harvesting crops and many animals are out and about gathering food to prepare for the winter. Fall is a time of great change.
Two weekends ago, I was teaching international style target archery to more than 100 youth from the surrounding area. Many of these kids and several of their parents had never had the opportunity to shoot a bow. It made me think about my role and responsibilities as a fish and wildlife professional.
In an age where smartphones and tablets replace fishing poles and shotguns, we, as fish and wildlife professionals, must take the time like our mentors did with us, to work with our youth to inspire future generations of fish and wildlife professionals. We can spend a ton of time and resources on habitat and population management, but if we don’t take the time to inspire the next generation of conservationists, then we have nothing. With that in mind, I’d like to challenge our members to find creative ways, within your organizations, to inspire our youth to ensure that we not only have the resources, but the people too.
As many of you take time away from the office to wet-a-line or crawl into a blind, make an effort to take along someone who’s never had the chance. You may find it life changing.
As I continue to talk about change, I would like to congratulate our president elect, Greg Simpson, for improving this newsletter to include a section that will list recent peer-reviewed publications authored by our members.
Additionally, I’d like to formally welcome our new sub unit at Valley City State University to the chapter and congratulate Dr. Casey Williams and sub unit president Josue Hernandez for their work to help make that happen.
Please help me welcome them to the chapter at our annual meeting in February. The annual meeting is scheduled for February 17th – 19,th 2015 in Bismarck (at the Comfort Inn).
I hope to see you all there!
Until then, take advantage of what the Dakotas have to offer and get outside!
Kurt Eversman, President
