their own poll shows 62% preferred things as they are. Why go against that? Why would they not trust their own data? How can this do anything positive?
Read my crossbow comment.
between 50 and 75% of licensed hunters hunt the Monday opener now, that’s pretty high and 62% like it that way. If it changes participation on Saturday would be forced if you wish to hunt the opener. If it’s easy to say “just start your season on Monday and who care about the opener” then say the same to those who want it on saturday.
