I'm not a big fan of put and take hunting..I'd rather pursue hunt and trap wild critters and birds. But the costs appear to be coming down, and with extra revenues being generated, I don't see where there's much left to complain about. I never felt that the pheasant program had to be totally self funding...I said in a prior post that a 50/50 blend of permit to general fund revenue would seem correct. There is a value in the program and it is hard to pin down what that value is to the hunting culture in the state. Those who want to hunt stocked pheasants, knock yourself out. It's not affecting my hunting, although it does kinda eliminate a lot of SGLs from responsible canine trapping. Particularly since the season is now open through late February. Me, I'll stick to chasing squirrels and trapping elsewhere. But to each, their own.
