PPBI Newsletters

PPBI attempts to publish four newsletters annually:

  • Spring
  • Summer
  • Fall
  • Winter

This schedule is modified depending on if the fish are biting, deer season is open, March Madness is underway, college football season is open, snow needs shoveling, or the lawn needs mowing.

We welcome contributions. If you would like to contribute any news article, item of interest, tips, reports of events that you think would be of interest to our readers, just send it to us at:
