DING! DING! DING! this is the most accurate thing ive read on the internet todayConsidering ND is 94 or is it 96% privately owned land? Its hard to make an argument comparing to several of the other Western states which offer thousands of acres of public ground. As far as the cap on bird hunter numbers, that only applies to Waterfowl I believe if I remember correctly, and in fact I believe the NR upland bird hunters should be limited as well. Just not enough resource out there anymore, the demand is far exceeding the supply from my perspective. This coming from a person born and raised here and lived my entire life in ND.
I have witnessed first hand the loss of opportunity due to hunting pressure from NR and land leasing and outfitters tying up vast acreage across the state. I believe if you work, live and pay taxes as a full time resident of the State, you sure as hell better come first when it comes to opportunities to hunt and fish in your backyard...
