Default Do you think increasing wildlife fines would work?

Do you think increasing wildlife violation fines would work to reduce (not stop) acts like spot lighting, shooting from the road, trespassing, etc.?

I think that's a "cop out" for some folks... The mistakes I seen my father make, I tried to NOT make them. He smoked, I never have... Under the line of thinking, I should be a tar wagon.

The "cost" and "price you pay" for smoking educated me NOT to follow in my father's foot steps.

Just as with wildlife violations, you starting hitting folks in the wallet and the education process will happen very quickly...

i grew up where they pretty much made their own huntin laws i guess ... jr is holding the damn spotlight , whill paw kills the animal...then it is jr turn while paw holds the light ... education for these choices should be taught the right way by their elders ... i would go as far as saying ( why don't we offer a class in middle schools) they take classes like sewing, cooking, and chit like that ....why not offer a wildlife educational class as an elective , where people who want in can and those that don't want .... i know some think i am nuts for saying this , but look at colleges and high schools are offering fishing , with all the brackets and stuff like a golf, football, or baseball games now ... it is a vision i could see , and with all these DNR GUYS having trouble getting paid from the state could move into the schools and teach our young ... teach them not just right and wrong , but about wildlife in general.... EDUCATING OUR CHILDREN CAN BE TAKIN TO THE NEXT LEVEL !!! there are new generations of hunters coming into the mix that were never taken to the woods by their dad , grandad , they get into it by other meens ,as for most of us are from generation after generation , ect of outdoor inthusiast

http://georgiawildlife.dnr.state.ga....tegory=hunting

Residents and non-residents born on or after January 1, 1961 must successfully complete a hunter education course prior to purchasing a season hunting license. However, a hunter education course is not required to purchase a one (1) day license or a three (3) day Non-Resident Hunting License. Hunter education courses certified or mandated by any state wildlife agency or Canadian province are accepted. Hunter Education is not required to hunt on one's own land or land of a parent or guardian.

Were you doing anything illegal? Did they have a need to visit you...

I'd be willing to bet that 75% of the tickets given out to hunters are by means of being "Tipped" off...

this is education to be safe , and learn the laws man ... i am talking of taking the education to the next level .... taking accual educational wildlife classes ...kind of like a starter kit to see if you want to be a wildlife biologist, with field trips for the class in the outdoors , with a teacher that knows what the hell they are showing and teaching our youth

While I agree with you about the fact of it teaching the act of being safe, the course is much more involved than that...

We teach animal identification, equipment, shooting skills, hunting skills, ethics, conservation and legislative means to keeping our sport healthy.

Nope. I abide by all game laws, always have. I think they are fair. He just happened to be riding by when one of our members was entering the gate. He was just curious I guess. I told him..I was glad to see him.
