I can't believe it, but I actually agree with you (retch) on something.[:D]
The DNR has had an irresponsible taxation program for the last decade or more. They should cut their budget to "value added" worth, plus 10%. 3 bucks should cover it.
The thing that I would like to eliminate it the DNR's belief that they own the wild life. They have exploited the wild life for revenue gains, but they work for the people. The land owners are shown little respect. It's just my opinion. I pay a bunch of property taxes every year, but receive no benefit. After discussing and questioning (letters) the lack of land owner rights with the DNR's, they promptly reduced my rights as a land owner even more. Land owner's (including children) in other states (TN) are not required to buy a hunting license to hunt their property. It's their right. I made the mistake of pointing out to the DNR that according to the rules, I could hunt small game on my property without buying a license, but had to pay for an out of state license. Their response was to change the rule the very next year.
Now that the DNR has successfully eradicated the deer population, they aren't needed anymore. Thank you for removing the deer population, your services are no longer needed.
From those who much is given, much is expected
