The good news is, at press time, GSCO's Dennis Campbell told us that he had sent a letter to FNAWS/ISHA's attorneys offering to settle the dispute right away without further litigation, and he had just received a letter back indicating a reply to his offer would be forthcoming shortly. We would love to settle this issue quickly and hope they do as well, Campbell told The Hunting Report.
We immediately called Ray Lee of FNAWS and asked him about the exchange of correspondence. Lee said he did not want to comment on the matter, or characterize the chances of a quick, out-of-court settlement.
If there is a break in this case, we will immediately send out an E-Mail Extra bulletin and then post it to our web site 24 hours later. It's safe to say the hunting community as a whole hopes the matter is settled quickly so the two organizations can hold orderly annual conventions. FNAWS' convention is scheduled for January 17-21 in Salt Lake City and Grand Slam/Ovis' convention is scheduled for February 22-25 In Tunica, Mississippi.
