Is it about hunters wants or not? If it’s not then hunters wanting to partake in the opener has nothing to do with it so what benefit does it have to get more hunters out on the opener? Even if that is the goal why is that the goal?
-Its not about hunters wants. Its about participition, period. Participation will lead to sales because it creates more oppurtunity to participate. Greater oppurtunity to create new hunters, draw previous hunters back that may have not bought a license and so on.. These are not garunteed results of the change, it merely creates the possibilty that, given that the majority of folks work or go to school monday-friday, will be able to participate. This includes those casual hunters who may not have that oppurtunity with a monday opener, thus leading to them buying a license to hunt saturday.....
what new hunters, what previous hunters?
It’s funny how many will assert that moving the opener won’t make guys quit but somehow it will make them start.
