At this point, they are going to do what they are going to do. I believe the biggest change I have seen in hunting in my lifetime was the implementation of AR/HR. In the end, those changes proved to be a lot for some people and it resulted in the largest decline in hunter participation that we've had, for various reasons - one of them being the amount of ground that got posted.
Right here and now, with all of these proposals for change coming down the pipe, I believe that we are on the precipice of another time of big change, and we will see the same results for the same reasons. If all of this stuff gets implemented, within 5 years from that happening, we will see another large drop in hunter participation and license sales. It is just too much for some.
I will continue to hunt whether I like this stuff or not, but to me some of it is very frustrating. A lot of people just say the heck with it and give up. I love hunting too much for that, I guess we will see.
