Question Re: HOLD the 2017 BBO DATES July 21-23 - The Official 2017 BBO Rules Discussion Threa

The BBO Rules committee would like your input on a proposal to simplify the rules by eliminating the East Coast and West Coast declaration which I have pasted below.

If this rule change is made, shooters could hunt on either coast on either day (Friday or Saturday).

We would also extend the 2 barracuda allowed for West Coast Shooters to all shooters because the coastal declaration would not apply and since the barracuda donations go to the good cause of marine research efforts at the Bimini Shark Lab and elsewhere. The new barracuda rules (15-36 inch slot size) impacts a shooter's ability to get 20 points for barracuda at the BBO in Palm Beach County where the Weigh-in possession limits will apply. Obviously, shooters must comply with all the harvest rules where they shoot on either coast.

Let us know your thoughts on this proposed rule change. Thanks, Tony
