You really do hate everybody Bowfinger. That has become obvious.
Let's not forget the THOUSANDS of acres on Campbell the military has access to that civilians don't.
Pandering has to stop at some point
Unless something has changed you can hunt that. It was my stomping grounds for spring thunder chickens back in the day.
I've tried many, many times. Active duty and vets get first dibs, I've never been able to hunt it because of that. I am fine with it but as I said, at some point, the pandering has to stop.
If that's your definition of going Nuclear then You have lived a sheltered life....LOL!
I’d say there’s probably a fair amount of veterans that also have “punk kids” as you described them. I’d think those folks would be less likely to pledge support in calling their commissioners.
Maybe the kid just didn’t want to hunt because they had a better opportunity somewhere else. Most ground folks would do the same thing. It could be a once a year opportunity.
The single reason we DON'T have a draft is because enough people are willing to step up and fill the slots in an all volunteer force...
Pandering it is not.
If not for those folks, Your number may well have come up.... You might keep that in mind.
They went arrow head hunting.... I doubt the stones were very likely to move..
Could be... I say that with some degree of jest as I have taken kids on the Youth hunts every time I have had the chance. I have had a few cancelations due to low grades etc. One friend's son had an archery tourney on Sat and he did not want to skip Church on Sunday, But he was on other hunts with us in January..
But I also grew up with an attitude of not looking a gift horse in the mouth.... No Youth days at all when I was growing up. We could buy a $5 hunting license and no fishing lic until 16... That was it.
I am not against a Youth hunt obviously but would like to see a Veterans Hunt as YES it has been Earned, not just gifted ..
If it’s sound science to let folks hunt after January then they should shift the general season accordingly and give active duty folks extra time on the front end.
We should continue to give youth hunters the best opportunity at a hunt that will hook them for life.
Give kids everything and they appreciate nothing...... If they earn it, it actually means something.
I mostly agree.
We’re talking 16 and younger. They can’t drive or legally purchase a gun/ammunition. The whole operation of a youth hunt seems like a “guided” experience to me and I would hardly consider that earned.
In full disclosure, I’m biased. I have kids that’s I would like to see get hooked. An extra weekend here and there isn’t going to do that, but it does open up opportunities that wouldn’t exist otherwise.
In reply to Headed West wanting the kids to have the best hunting of the year??? They don't need to be spoiled from the start. Like I said, Don't look a gift horse in the mouth....
