The other ORV thread is getting a little cerebral for me.
Seems to me one of the biggest problems with ORV's during hunting season is that hunting season almost alway coincides with monsoon season. Swamps are full, rivers are running high, and trails are generally wet. One solution is move some seasons in sensitive areas back to October after the ground starts to freeze and the rivers drop. Problem is the rivers become unrunable for boats.
It is impossible to meet the DNR criteria for habitat degradation with any land vehicle.
I put forth a proposal to the BOG about 12 years ago when they were just talking about changing unit 13 to 4 brow tine. The proposal was that the entire state go drawing permit for moose, any bull. It kept hunters spread out and looking at the numbers everyone that wanted a permit could have a great chance of getting one somewhere. If there were problem areas they could have registration hunts. The hate filled responses written to the BOG were amazing I thought I'd have to fight my way out of the room.
Everyone agreed there was a problem with hunters concentrated in small areas tearing up the country and conditioning the game. Just that noone wanted a regulation that regulates them.
How about some real ideas on how to make the situation better?
