The problem is also who makes the rules. Here in Colorado the CPW Commission (Parks & Wildlife..used to be Game & Fish) makes the rules with little or no oversight from the Legislature. They are appointed by the Legislature and have lots of landowner/outfitter members. The department is also an "Enterprise" which means they get no money from the state, only what they charge for licenses/tags, fees and court fines, etc. They do hold hearings throughout the state and appear to listen, but their votes sure don't reflect much "listening".
