    Remember when you sent a $5 check in when you mailed your application in? Then if you didn’t get picked ODNR refunded your $5

    My understanding is they will be placed in the wetlands and throughout the site to promote microbiomes.

    Went by the new wetland project Tuesday, it appears they’re finishing up. A lot of the heavy machinery is already moved out. Very interesting what they’ve done there, never seen a wetland project installed like this. I have to watch and see how it turns out. you get a chance you have to drive by it before, it gets water on it.
     
  5. Talked to a guy at the office , said they will be completed and offered in the drawing next year. Don’t know if it’s the marsh drawing or the field units

    It will have to be the marsh units. There will no longer be any fields. The majority of the acreage is wet meadow or wooded wetland. The wet meadow along Denman Rd. is a series of hundreds of mounds and depressions. You need to go by and look at it. You won't hunt much of anything in there.

    I saw the project as they were doing it and rode by this past weekend. There will not be any good hunting with what they did. Amazing GM got that sweet mitigation deal on state refuge property.
    Where was DU when all this went down? Oh wait Mosquito is not near the mallard club or Toledo so DU is not interested only interested in your checkbook and fundraisers

    You bet GM got a sweet deal. Normally the mitigator must purchase property. Right now property in northern Trumbull Co goes for $2000 / acre, so they were given a $300,000 gift. On top of that ,when GM closed the Lordstown plant, they should have paid back 64.5 MILLION in tax credits. The governor said he isn't worried about them paying it back, although the state auditor said otherwise(guess who is going to win that one). Now GM says it is so optimistic about their battery plant that they may make it larger. Wonder where they can find somebody dumb enough to give them free land for more mitigation work. Hey what about those remaining fields to the east. They can finish off the farming and the refuge, once and for all.

    Very well said wetlander, those wet meadows will be filled in with reed canary grass in about two years.

    Leave it t the state to screw things up for us hunters all while they try to sell it to us as a big advantage.

    Why does it happen?
    As sportsmen, we allow it to continue to happen because we don't speak or minds and make the calls needed to create some waves.

    UPDATE Today it was ruled that GM will have to payback $28 M to the State of Ohio and $12 M to Mahoning Co. of the $60 M in tax credits it received for keeping the Lordstown auto plant. open.
