Requiring a user fee is a first step to seeing more non hunting use of our SGLs.
I believe you're onto something...
Do y'all have any reports or articles where this has been a problem in states that have recreational use pass programs already in place? I've heard this argument many times over the past 5 or 6 years when they were considering a user fee in Georgia but nobody ever showed these adverse effects. Seems most always had "a friend of a friend who said..." about such things but that was it.
I haven't heard of any issues after 3 years of having user fees for public land in Georgia and was just hoping someone might be able to point me to some credible articles that might help me become educated on this. Thanks.
