If I'm correct, deer numbers weren't released until end of year last year? Un excusable.
I believe the state likes to keep the common person in the dark so that no factual arguments can be made.
40,000 deer or 40,000 bucks?
Other states have weekly updates, we don't. Look at the info available on the Indiana DNR website and look what info is available to sportsmen in wv.
What we just started the electronic check in system like 2 years ago - yes I would like to see some more but I think I can allow them some more time before condemning them over everything....
And the DNR website, and info that could be posted, have been available for years.
While I see things in my opinion that the dnr could do better I don't see this as a short coming. Please someone inform me why a member of our dnr should be wasting time to sort and catalog this information then transferring it over to their website and contacting news outlets to post this information. GrAnted they do it all by computer but I'd like to think that whoever is not doing this is maybe doing something beneficial to us like catching poachers or investigating poachers or maybe working on their cases that could be coming up in court.
One other question is it more important to maintain public information all year or in this case during hunting season or in forcing game laws. That brings another question do these other states have a outside group helping with their cyber side or is maintained by their dnr officers. How is it funded. To accomplish.
Maybe just maybe when attacking a agency about their short comings come with all the information to present your case instead of misleading general statements to create dissent.
Just some free thinking thoughts.
Updating a website.
Info and education is a good thing.
What's the likelihood of these states having the same program?
Agreed info is important but it's only as important as the person using it and if their using it correctly I see you posting alot of graphs and charts but with no supporting information or context of said information. It is well documented through out history that accurate information is used inaccurately to push agendas and illadvised causes. You are masterful at posting just enough info to support your statements but yet not thourogh enough to prove it. Sorta like first cousin to fake news.
Your statement what's the likely hood of these states having the same program? Well the art of presenting a question to answer a question to try and avoid answering is old. Come prepared to support your charts and blanket statements or don't do it. It's old your sorta like a one trick poney trying to relive some lost fame. Before trying to hold others to accountability for their info or lack there of maybe you should try yours.
One trick pony? Lost fame?
Are you a new member? Seems a little aggressive.
Do you know this guy? Seems to have come in and took your side?
I have no clue who it is - but got to admit I think he is pretty much spot on. You talk about being aggressive quite a few of us think you are as well. I think you do some very good things but I think some of your and Gobblers ideas for better management are just completely wrong. In here and in your group at first I tried be civil and share my input but just got tired of seeing people pushed out (ask to leave) or belittled because they didn’t completely agree with ya. I was going to continue to expand on this and figured it was time to stop because way to often a thread goes completely off-track and I don’t want to do that here. And when I say that I know I am as guilty as anybody in doing that. So if you want to continue the conversation we can start another post or PM - either would be fine.
Again I do not know this outdoorsman but I do agree with what he has said so far. I am simple I don’t add the handles to identified myself - just so I can recognize who I am I will always use my name least I forget who I am! LOL
Aggressive not in the least or no more than you. Sorry didn't realize that membership time gave a person rights or leeway on posts. Must of missed that in the forum rules.
I'll remove myself from the site since I'm to aggressive, apologies to the members of this site.
No comments in my post are directed towards anyone specific.
