These threads have been going on for awhile.
List what part of the state you are from and what you would like to see happen.
Everybody says that the state is thier playground, and it is, but this state is the size of 1/3 of the lower 48, Think About That. If you were in the lower 48 say in calif. would you be able to go to Col. and take game without a permit? Would you be able to hunt at all?
This last bou hunt reminds me of something that would happen if the city of L.A. went out into the dessert and just shot anything that moved, wait they already did that and now they don't have enough left to go around. I know thats a little extreme because of the pioners that helped to deplete the game pop. ( see where this is going?)
I see the people that need the game for there lifestyle, and then I see the people that say hey I get the chance to live out my dream, and then they want more and will take more than one should.
I'm all for anybody going out and getting meat as long as they don't abuse the quota the land can support.
I was in Calif and was taking a trip across the mountains from Reno back into Calif. and what I saw was amazing, there was a tent every 50' along a 5 mile stretch of road. Everyone wearing orange ( Said to sell that I would never hunt like this.) ( I was actully afraid for me and my wifes life.)
I was against the cow hunt to the extreme that they took it here in Delta, but it did'nt stop alot of people from coming down to help them achive thier goal without looking at the data.
So I ask you what are your hunting goals? Fire away.
