Are we as Sportsmen going to sit around.....

And not insist the PGC get a very sizable license increase across the board to support their ability to manage the resources.

Maybe take the route Missouri did, 1/10% added to their sales tax, pretty sure that is the number. Very well off dept. of game and fisheries, plenty of money for projects etc. Having hunted there they do a great job and last I knew one of if not the most healthy and wealthy dept. in the U.S.

I'm all for it

Been supportive of the legislaure giving the PGC a fee increase for years. All of the sportsman's conservation groups have.

Gal it just always seems to be such a fight to get anything in this regard and it seems hunters to a large degree don't want to see it either???????

Nope. It seems hunters have largely supported it. It still doesnt move because of--- the members of the legislature.

PFSC, the UBP, NWTF, the PA Trappers Assn, PF, QDMA have all come out in support. I did a poll, let me see if I saved it.

Re: Are we as Sportsmen going to sit around.....

Hunters have never been supportive of license increases, hunter orgs are tho.

The percentage of the sales tax idea was talked bout here in PA and the legislature does not want to give the PGC any parts of that. They lose control of the PGC if they have their own funding.

It is all politics and it revolves around 2 things.

1. Deer

2. We have a vast portion of our legislature that has little to no connection to the outdoors. Even many of the legislators that hunt, aren't really serious hunters.

Gal I based what I said about hunters merely on what I have witnessed here when the topic get's brought up. Almost very hunter that I know personally is all for it and a large increase at that.

I just feel that at some point push will come to shove and another source of money is going to need to be found, license fee, sales tax etc. With the drop in hunters that are hitting almost the entire country something will need to be done or else.
