people who make money off of a public resource should be taxed (outfitters and guides).
But that is not what was said.
I agree to a point.
what a landowner does, ( leasing his ground to an outfitter ) is none of your business.
Don’t agree with it, then buy him out. Now you control it.
guiding on Public Ground, ...... yes I agree.
Looking at raw numbers decreasing hunter numbers is a myth.
My public marshes and lease prices support that.
It is likely that certain areas are seeing a decline while others are seeing an uptick. In AZ, we just had a record number of applicants for a recently big game draw. The uptick was to the tune of 18k more applicants. Small game hunters are on the rise here as well. This may be due to our large overall population increase and simply hunters are moving to this state from other areas. Seems like more duck hunters too! In contrast, NY can’t find enough deer hunters and just expanded their season.
Where are guides and outfitters not subject to tax laws?
Hunter numbers aren’t decreasing, but the amount of hunters per capita are.
That’s kinda what I was thinking. Next thing you know people are gonna be asking for duck hunting reparations for people that have been traditionally disenfranchised from the sport.
First time I have ever came close to agreeing with you about anything.
An it’s awesome that the authors brother Steve deff didn’t help the local sika hunting here by televising it. Can’t find a lease an even if u did it’s crazy expensive an the public land is packed. An all types of out of state tags in the lots.
Throw out 2020, and hunter numbers have been slowly trending down for years. Per capita is declining rapidly despite the solid uptick of pandemic license sales.
