Whether you agree with quatos or not, it still boils down to revenue. In Colorado the R can hunt a premium unit at least twice before a NR has a chance. Those units now are running in the 15 to 16 point range. The point creep is more than 1 point a year. So if you start applying when you're 30, you might draw by the time your 50. That's not reasonable. To offset the revenue flow and allow the R to keep the majority of the tags, R tags prices need to go up. Recommend that at a meeting and let me know how that goes for you. Until the R give on something, more tags will go to the Land Owners and Outfitters to keep the revenue stream up.
I had a resident in Colorado tell me to get off his mountain (National Forest Land) because they owned the animals. I ask him where do I send the bill. He said "the bill for what"? I said "for grassing his animals on land I was helping pay for". As he stood there with a stupid look on his face, I shook my head and walked off.
