I doubt you payed enough in taxes to warrant more than 1 hunt at an mdc area anyway ,or maybe you could pay more taxes so MDC can buy more land and spread everyone out a bit more . Point is if the system isn't working for you then change your approach . I hunted public for many years , got tierd of so made a commitment to do what I needed to try other options . I guess complaining just isn't my thing .Maybe spend some time trying to work with some land owners and earn some trust so you can hunt their property . Buy the way Guilligan found an Island real cheap and I know someone who is giving food stamps to alot of folks !!
You're sure right. My GED isn't doing a thing for me.
If you will read back a few pages, you'll indeed see that I make EXACTLY the point you are so eloquently trying to restate. Apparently, the poor communication tools my GED provided made me unable to get that message across with your obvious skill. Kudos to you for your superior intellect and rapier wit.
Unfortunately, I was raised in a country where government was supposed to be "by the people, for the people". That seems to be a real handicap in this country, where government is all about doing it "TO the people". I apologize for my outdated mode of thinking, which believes that government should be the servant, and not the master.
I suppose I'll need to touch base with the dozen or so farmers I call friends and let them know that I won't be hunting their private spots any longer, as I'll soon have a spot in the pacific where I won't need to be bothered by any of this public BS.
But MAN am I hungry right now. You know, 24 hours with no food, and walking everywhere you go will do a number on you. But I've already saved $42.21. I suspect I'll have that island in no time. Can't thank you enough for helping me figure it all out.
P.S. I'll be sure to say hi to "Guilligan" for you if I see him!
