    Default BOG Proposal #42

    This proposal will allow the use of bait to harvest wolves.

    I AM FOR IT!

    This would be more effective, it is cheaper, and is less contoversial than airborne hunting.

    It's redundant.

    The use of bait is already legal under a trapper's license.

    If it is redundant then why oppose it. Maybe more hunters will be able to kill more wolves.

    Exclamation i can't believe it!!

    i agree with mark! (or at least the part of his post that was quoted...still don't read them...)
    pony up the extra bucks and get a trapping license, then you can use bait and lights and kill lots more then a regular hunting license... and the dept uses the revenue for furbearer management.
    i oppose this regulation because it is needless, and could bring undue focus and criticism by the antis on a practice that is already accepted.

    I don't oppose it. I just pointed out that it's redundant, and thus pretty much useless.

    If a "hunter" doesn't already have the trapper's license and motivation to acquire bait, set it out, then sit on it, I doubt that including that into a hunting license will make much of a difference.

    I would love to be shown otherwise.

    that would be another feather in PETAs cap, not many people realize you can bait wolves under a trapping license...
    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

    I was not trying to say that you oppose this and I would have to agree with you on this. If someone wants this as an option then They would put in the time and a little extra money to get the bennifits of a traping license. I know that I changed my oppinion but I reserve the right to flip-flop after becoming better informed.
