MO does a lot of things right as far as conservation goes.
Their 1/4 of 1% of the sales tax is dedicated to the outdoors. Meaning that is how thier DNR is publically funded by ALL their citizens, as well as state parks, etc... It is overseen by a citizens advisory board asa well as a few key reps from DNR, Parks, etc..
We here(Sportsmans groups) in MN have been trying to do that here in MN for the last 5 years. It is called the 3/16 Ammendment that would amend the states consitution. But the legislature will not go for it because then they give up their power. Classic example of politics getting in the way of what is best for all Minnesotans. BTW, the legislature will not approve of it going onto the ballot, as the voters of MN need to approve a Constitutional Amendment. Basically 2 hurdles--the vote by the public should pass--but the Legislature says no by its actions. But we are still will continue to fight them to get them to ok it going to the ballot.
Yup LQP is a joke for many years now. I remember seeing hay bails that you hide behind 50' off of the road and geese coming 100+ yds high and guys blasting away at them
while the traffic grid locked in front of the blinds:thumbsdown: Talk about a circus
And that was 30 years ago. I have never ever wanted to return-and have not. A classic case of extremely poor managment IMHO.
