If you think the goal should be to maximize the population, limit your harvest to zero :thumbsup:

Unless there is an overpopulation to the point of disease or some other rare circumstances, minimizing harvest maximizes the population.



for the very short term, this CAN be true, but long term, minimized/no harvest would greatly reduce the population..

by short term, i mean one january count (hunted) to the next not hunted.. but the population will not be even close to +7mil.

I do not understand why there is a limit on snow geese if they are trying to reduce the population.....

If reducing the population was really that important, we wouldn't be using shotguns in the first place.

from what i understand, population # are peaked.. lowing the numbers is going to be next to impossible.. and at this point, there is no need.. also no need for a limit as the birds have shown the capability to handle the pressure.. i think the limit is to avoid waste more than anyting..

If a rooster gets onto a gable roof to lay an egg...according to AT and his magical 50/50 that applies to EVERYTHING and it somehow predicts there is a 50/50 chance that the egg will roll down one side except for one thing.
Roosters cant lay eggs.

Epic 50/50 failure. He'll say there is a 50/50 chance the rooster will lay an egg because either it will or it wont.
It wont...100%


You don't even have a basic grasp of 50/50

There is a 50/50 chance the rooster will lay an egg. Either it will, or it won't. There are two possible outcomes. Just because one never happens, doesn't negate the fact that one or the other will happen.

Which way the egg rolls is a separate event, with its own probability.

yes, either it will or it won't. two outcomes. But they most certainly are NOT weighted the same.

Give me a thousand pounds of C4 and a one way ticket to Nunavut.

And I agree, the limit is just there to keep things manageable. Probably benefits the outfitters more than anything by putting a ceiling on the guys who really wail on em.

i doubt you would take out many more than one bear does over the season..

it would take the airforce and a carpet bombing campain to knock em down noticable, and they would just be back the next year.
