The funnies thing about it is he's not even for changing the system! We've been round and round on this issue over the years.
I have never had a problem with changing the system. I just expect a change to have a real benefit to justify the change.
Currently I can sit down and complete the application, envelope, check, then put it in the mail in under 5 minutes. Then one day the pretty pink envelope reappears in my mailbox. I have completed that process dozens of times myself without incident, as have millions of other hunters. To me the process is so simple and easy I would not have ever given it a second thought if it wasn't for reading the complainers on line.
Now I am sure the resident expert on everything will get on his soap box and claim multiple trips to the store, added cost, a system kinda like but not exactly like the elk process, using one process for the first round another process for bonus rounds, a lottery, a lottery with preference points, a system that keeps the applicants money even if a tag is not awarded, a process that leaves the PGC open to eat awarded but unpaid for tags, ect. are all improvements.
Ultimately I will use what ever process (Current or New) the PGC has in place without complaint, as will the majority of other hunters. And there will be a small bunch that will complain about what ever process (Current or New) that the PGC has in place.
Good luck, Tony
