I found it ironic that many of you who consider yourselves subsistence hunters who support the idea of a duck stamp. The duck stamp is a permit to hunt waterfowl. How many of us would consider having to purchase a "permit" to go to the store to buy food? Or use only "traditional means" of transportation to get there? This is really what separates sport from subsistence hunters. If one is truly hunting to feed themselves, then arguably there should be no rules, no limits, no prohibition on weapons. Suggesting that one should limit themselves to some prehistoric methods of take is just plain ignorance. If you believe hunting as it relates to subsistence is a "privilege", you lack the basis understanding of what true hunting and gathering is really about. Feeding yourself without government interference is a basic human right. Not something to be controlled by others. I suspect opposition to purchasing a "permit' to eat is based more on principle than cost. The only thing debatable here is whether or not an individual really needs to subsist off the land. Would you let others decide that for you?
