    lil off topic but I would support a substantial rate increase if it meant increasing the number of conservation officers. Having one CO for multiple counties is ridiculous. It should be one CO per county, minimum.

    It's my understanding this increase to the general fund would have helped maintain officers and department positions. I was also told they have already not replaced around 50 of those position which in turn is really spreading some of our officers thin. the money is also allocated for a lot of public hunting assess types of programs where the DNR plants food plots and maintains different things. There's a lot of other things this money would be used for as well obviously, those are just a few that continually get discussed.

    Yup! Not cheap, but a good investment. It's no longer a poor mans game. Lots of rabbits, squirrels & doves to be had for much less $$$. Not what most of us want but that's the way it's headed and I don't see it changing.
