The Board talked about Crossbows in the MN archery season.  This  issue could come up at the next legislative session.  It was noted that  the MN Deer Hunters Association Board has voted to support including  crossbows into the bow hunting deer season.  MBI is going to draw up a  resolution on why archery deer hunters oppose crossbows during the  archery deer season.

Talked about having six events at the 2016 Game Fair (Board is calling it the Six Pack).

A lot of work has been done with the web site.  Dwayne explained what  has been done.  We talked about offering members the option of  selecting an electronic version of the newsletter which could be emailed  to members. This could save MBI money that could be used for other  efforts.

An MBI NASP funding request form is now on the MBI website.

Dwayne explained the definition of a 100% club as written in the MBI bylaws.

MBI added two new board members: Dan Buzicky from Shakopee, MN and Adam Schmidt also from Shakopee.
