So, they had no reason to interrupt your hunt or cause you delay. They are not there to be "snope dogs" just enforce laws when they are broken.

I agree and have expressed my thoughts to Capt. Bell and Col. West on this...

so if my brother wants to bow hunt this year, he doesnt have to have a hunters safety card as long as he buys a one day license?

WTH are you saying? Are you on dope? I'm just saying...that the presence of law enforcement will prevent poaching more than increased fines. Maybe thay should increase fines to finance more law enforcement....When I first started hunting...I would see a warden almost every weekend... I welcome them..I have nothing to hide....

I realize you have NOTHING to hide and they may also realize this. They are "NOT" going to waste time checking you (the good, honest, law abiding hunter) when they know of 20 other areas that are laced with poaching scum bags that don't have a care in the world about breaking game laws. Why visit and bug you, wasting time when they can go bust a** elsewhere...

We teach animal identification, equipment, shooting skills, hunting skills, ethics, conservation and legislative means to keeping our sport healthy.
there is no way that the people that take that 2 day class could get the kind of outdoor education i am speaking of teaching in our middle schools and above

Well...sometimes you can give them chicken on a stick, and they won't do a darn thing about it. I have a good story to tell on that, but its long....

I voted NO because "poachers are poachers", IF caught, they will pay their fine and keep doing what they do.

Same with license suspension, all that means for a poacher is that they saved $60 for a sportsmans license.

The only way to slow/control poaching is put enough DNR personnel out in the field.


Right now, my guess is that 99% of poaching episodes are uncaught/unreported.

I think one of the worse things GA DNR is doing now is the online and CD/rom courses where the kids just have to do some things online and then show up to take the test.
learning how to hunt on a computer could be detramental to the future of the hunting world ... i believe there is no better education than being in the woods hands-on , with somebody with the knowledge to teach .... the computer can be an educational tool , but we need a human to educate and send them on the right path of learning in the woods or using a computer for homework to find and learn more about what the teacher is trying to teach them to learn

That is a huge concern right now...

Reduced budget means reduced patrols, over worked wardens, etc...
