    Default You state wildlife agency question

    After talking to many who work in the wildlife agencys.

    Im finding out money is the driving source for Oklahoma wildlife laws.

    Can politicians ruin hunting?

    Is your state about making money and not preserving wildlife for many years to come? Should states be looking at wildlife as a source of revenue?

    Fishing and hunting bring billions of dollars into state economy already in buissnesses. Isnt that enough!

    Economy is not good! States are suffering and this trend will continue in my opionion.

    Exactly! It usually turns out better for a few people. Those are usually the people that helped the politician get elected. The genaral public usually suffers

    Here in Washington last year we had a very isolated incident. A 16 and 14 year old were hunting and the 14 year old mistook a 50 year old female hiker for a bear, he shot and killed her. While tragic, accidents are very rare in Washington (we have more room out here than most of you). Despite the fact this has not happened before or since the politicians jumped all over it and are thinking of changing the restrictions on minor hunters. Just a knee jerk reaction to a isolated incident.

    Often accidents do cause big time factors in many things. Hunters must continue to write and send letters to protect are rights. I would rather have them hunting than doing other things in life. Adults do the same accident alot more than minors hunting.

    my opinion is that oklahoma has always been over populated with hunter with not enough land. there are some regulations that bother me and some that are good for us. i dont want politicians involved because what do they know about hunting and fishing? or even hunting regulations. there are also alot of other factors in this also. agriculture,herd management, each areas own special ecosystem, problem animals. there are alot of things politicians dont know about.
