Title: Commission needs to hear, "It Works"
Post by: Dale Sharp on February 05, 2009, 07:00:00 PM
One of the objectives of Resource Allocation was to ensure that each user-group would harvest a proportion of the game that was equal to each user-group's size relative to the total number of hunters. When the proportions are within 3% of one another the WDFW considers the goal met.

The Fish and Wildlife COMMISSION needs to start getting mail, calls and email from hunters pointing out the fact that Resource Allocation is working.

OK Guys, Dale gave us the numbers.......let's let the commission hear.

Cut and paste those numbers into your email. If anything, it looks like the Muzzy boys owe the Rifle guys some %%%%%%
