There are a number of alternatives to the proposed concession program that can be developed with the participation of the BGCSB, APHA, "non-APHA" guides and the BOG. Some aspects would be implemented by the BOG and some by the DNR and part by the BGCSB.
Though I may have real concerns about the concession program as proposed the issues regarding quality of hunt and resource concerns are real and need to be addressed. Should the concession program as proposed fail, there is little doubt that something will be done to address the issues.
If there is enough interest on this forum I will setup an "open" gmail account to get started. Everyone interested, regardless of whether a licensed guide or not is welcomed to participate.
The only thing asked is a genuine interest in discussing the issues and not become a venue for bashing individuals or organizations.
Please send a PM if interested.
