I have been watching this issue, and I as many believe our PGC has problems. I can also understand wanting the PGC to be more, or better accountable for things. HOWEVER--folks by taking a current commission in which we know has problems, and then developing yet another "so-called" over sight group is to me a recipe for disaster. I say this because using our current federal standards in Washington, DC--that's what they do--take a known entity who has issues, and form yet another entity to over see that one, and what we get is a big mess. We get a failed entity overseeing another failed entity who is overseeing yet other failed entities. basically a bureaucracy laden mess.
What we need to do is fix the existing issues we have without heaping more failure on top of it.--How?--well I am unsure, but by piling on yet another agency filled with what could be unqualified people to oversee an already problematic mess cannot have a good outcome. It is my opinion it will only lead to an even bigger mess in which will be even tougher to untangle the problems we have currently.
I find myself still trying to see, and hear both sides of this issue. I am one who simply does not have all the facts on both sides here. I am trying to sort through it.
The one thing I do know is this---For those who simply go out, and buy a hunting license, and pay no attention to what is going on behind the scenes simply not caring whats going on, and allowing others to carry the burden of politics ( I call these people "takers"-taking, and not giving back)--YOU BETTER WAKE UP!
Our sport has a very dark under-belly with lots going on behind the scenes that CAN, and WILL have a very direct outcome--good, or bad.
In the end when folks suddenly stop in their tracks, and ask--"My God--how did we get here in such a deep mess?"--Easy answer--we sat back--uninformed, un-caring, not caring, and paying absolutely no attention to what was going on.
