    At about $150 a piece for a license, yeah, I'm guessing ND will regret this in about 2 years. I'll be really surprised if license sales don't drop by 1/4 for both ducks and pheasant.

    I'm guessing the folks who live in ND are hoping it drops a lot more than that.

    All of us are fine with you and other folks with the same take staying home. It's cool if people stop coming.
    I mean, I'm fine if you and folks like you stop coming. It's cool.

    Do you think the local businesses will have the same thought process? Our group typically supports a lot of the local businesses where we stay. Also, only the statewide license for 2 7-day periods is $153 and the other one is $103. Either way it's a small amount to do something a person loves...

    I doubt it will matter one way or the other.

    Folks, as my grandkids say, "It is what it is".
    When I started hunting, in the late 1960's, posted land anywhere was rare.....in most states.
    We would walk railroad tracks flushing pheasants. Hunt any pothole that held ducks. Hey, we could keep a shotgun in our vehicle at school. A 12 year old could buy a gun or ammunition.
    It was always a good idea to check with your neighbor, but usually heard " Yeah, you boys hunt anytime you like".

    Things change. More hunters. Lawsuits. Etc.

    Hunting without a fee is still a great deal, just requires a little more work, and respect for the landowner.

    Those who begrudge NRs are being short sighted.
    The NR license money approximates that generated by resident fees (according to GF).
    Matching federal funds.....and it totals about half of the agency's operating budget. Lose the NR, and lose half your programs, or face double the license fees.
    Everyone hates change. But the only constant, is change.
    It is what it is.
