Combining the agencies would be the stupidest thing the sate could do. Instead of having two underfunded agencies there would be one big underfunded agency competing for the license fees. Additionally the monies earned from the game lands, which is substantial would have to be shared with the fish and boat side which would hurt the game side. What you folks who continue to say combine the agencies don't realize that the combined agencies are funded by tax payers, not just hunters and fishermen so their funding is totally dependent on what the legislature and the governor allows them to have each year. I know a lot of people in a lot of state game and fish agencies and all I ever heard from them is they wish they were set up like the PGC and PAF&B. Additionally, once that happens the head of the combined agency would be appointed by the governor and be a political hack getting paid back and would not be there for the best interests of the resources or the sportsmen. When governors change, the agency head would change and there would be no continuity in running programs in the agency. Be careful what you wish for, because once that happens it will be here forever. But then perhaps you wouldn't mind hunters and fishermen's money going to welfare recipients and other uses that would benefit politicians and not sportsmen because there would be no way they would not put fish and game money in the general fund.
