I agree, as does most everyone else that tagging is the best way to go. I did voice this to the waterfowl manager of Manitoba last year. What he said was the licensing guys feel that adding XX many tags to each license would significantly raise the cost of printing license Which really isn't that much of a problem, just increase the cost of a NR license. I can't imagine it would be that much, maybe an extra $10 - $20 If you value you're time up here hunting the way that you do, by spreading out your hunts over a 3 week period. I would suggest that you contact the province you hunt in DNR/Waterfowl manager and let them know of your concerns. Write them a letter or call them directly, and a get a few of your buddies to do the same and let them know you prefer the tagging regulation as appose to the 6 day license. We don't want to see visiting sportsmen like you're stopped from coming up here to enjoy some hunting, but we also need to stop the aholes that abuse the freedoms we have here.
