No we don't but does the DNR make us catch 2 bluegill, a musky and a northern in order to catch a limit of walleye?
No, they don't, because few (if any) lakes have problems with too many fish. I thought the original analogy was pretty good. Plus, the DNR does implement rules to manage fish when needed. The original point, as I read it, was that most guys get locked into their little 20, 40 or 80 acre hunting parcels, then they complain that "there aren't any deer left" when populations get closer to goal. It is all about reality and reality is now skewed after years of overpopulations. I'm really tired of beating this dead horse, but do some research and get to the bottom of the real reasons why the DNR backed off in 1988 then again in 1992.
Also, you should note that the Democrat-controlled Legislature can be thanked for this recent back-pedaling. The same Democrats that want to take your guns and tax you out of existence on ammunition.
I'm done on this topic.
