Now I’m not a politician and don’t know exactly how the process works but I do know this, any time politicians get involved in a decision-making process such as this particular one, the impending results can be devastating.
These man and women have no idea of what sound wildlife management is all about. Who would you rather have making decisions on Ohio’s hunting seasons and bag limits the Ohio division of Wildlife and the Wildlife Council or a bunch of grandstanding politicians and staff who are not wildlife scientists and more than likely do not even care about Ohio’s wildlife and Ohio’s outdoor sporting heritage.
Ohio’s world-class fishing, hunting, and trapping are the result of sound wildlife management by the Ohio Division of Wildlife and the Ohio Wildlife Council. These sound scientific methods have been used to manage Ohio’s wildlife resources for more then 140 years.
The current rule process, including JCARR review and approval, has proven effective since 1977. Now where in the scope of their authority does it say they have the right to make or change any rules concerning Ohio’s Wildlife management process. Their only responsibility is to check them for their legality.
JCARR is taking credit for this year’s new and changed deer regulations when in all actuality they are the exact same proposals that the Division originally submitted before JCARR got involved. Submitted back in February and were supposed to have been voted on in April.
We must be coming up on an election year for these grandstanding, glory seeking politicians. Why eldest would someone in the right mind delve into an area of unknown such as they did? Oh. I forgot, they’re politicians, they know everything and what’s best for us, no matter what the situation.
Sorry, folks, you loose, not in my world!
