i'm also a sportsman/land owner/part time farmer. wildlife is getting so plentiful that i can't raise corn in some of my fields because of deer/coon damage. there are just too many and they need thinning out. it would suit me if they let hunters harvest more game instead of paying farmers for damage. the problem is this gives them an excuse to raise license fees so they can buy more leather seated Yukons and Denalis to cruise around in. don't get too wound up about some hunters blasting you. if they were land owners they would have a different outlook.
