Default Re: Cape Cod Evolution?

Enforcement is complicated, but some fellows told me that they support enforcement initiatives because it gives bureaucrats an incentive to keep the sport alive, through whatever means at their disposal. Sort of like the trout stocking program here, F&W are rightly trying to attract angler $'s to trout fishing since those $'s support their jobs.


It's a jujitsu move to use the government's bureaucratic engine for your own benefit, the main thing is to keep the regulating bodies on your side, showing them how keeping you satisfied as a hunter or angler is in their best interests.


The complicated part about hunting is the competing interests that are against any guns or others against any form of killing wildlife. I believe those are the forces that drive the micromanagement of kill tags, limits and complicated regs, as the bureaucrats try to maintain a balance of politics and self-preservation.


As you wrote succinctly: the balance of power: politics, vested interests, and owed favors.
