My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.
It won't happen that way. Part of the fiscal cliff mess included a cap set on charitable contributions.
Guy has some real good points.
One thing we really have to be vigilant about is how this money is used as he points out. Many, many years ago California started using stamps on their licenses. First it was trout, then stripers, upland game, ocean enhancement and so on. The money was supposed to be used to benefit the particular thing the stamp was bought for. First was the trout stamp which was to benefit the hatchery network. The trout fisherman would pay for THEIR fishery. Well a few years ago an indepth audit was done and it was found that the $$$ was mostly going into the California General Fund. Seems the legislature couldn't keep their hands off of it. (Sounds like Social Security right!)
We have to really what these politicians are doing.

This is a public resource you are auctioning off and if you bought 100,000,000 ballpoint pens with the money it should be public record.
If these are public resources then why can't non residents hunt NATIONAL forest wilderness areas without a guide in Wyoming. There's another double standard that benefits one not the other.
Good ideas Guy, did you forget about the (Wyoming) Senators, Congress rep. G&F commisioners tags? Most of those were any area tags too....limited quota/hard to draw tags.
What's next, a poor man drawing a great tag and selling it for $200k? I mean why not right?
